The pancakes and eggs are really good at Next Door Cafe. From 7:30 am to 12 noon this place is really busy. The breakfast menu is excellent. Staff is very friendly. Don't forget to put money in the parking meter during summer time.

Was going to another place for breakfast when we saw this restaurant and decided to try it. It was a pleasant surprise - inexpensive food, great service, clean bathroom (although no changing table for baby, the counter is long enough to do so.) Nice decor of old time pictures and maps of the area is a bonus, During the fall... More

Have enjoyed a few delicious breakfasts here - great omelets, tasty pancakes, etc. It's a good option well liked by locals. My only quibble is that the coffee was weak. I'd humbly suggest that they offer a stronger brew for those of us who like a thick, rich dark roast. Also would suggest that they change the mirror tinting on... More

My husband and I were walking around in the mood for a quick breakfast and we decided to leave the boardwalk and look in town. We came across this small café that from the outside doesn't seem like much and may miss it because it doesn't stand out. We ordered breakfast sandwiches and you'd be surprised how often places can... More

Slow unfriendly service, overpriced. Corn beef hash is the best in the world but prohibitively expensive

Home of the "big blue cup" aka a delicious cup of coffee but their slogan should be "home of the nastiest staff and worst customer service"..there are plenty of breakfast places in seaside that offer a decent cup of coffee, not worth putting up with,miserable old waitresses who roll their eyes whenever a customer walks in (I guess they don't...

My family and I went to the Next Door Cafe on the last day of our trip at the recommendation of a friend. Our kids were of course upset to be leaving their vacation but I wouldn't call them noisy by any means. Unfortunately it was obvious that their moody tempers were getting on the nerves of the staff. We... More

This is a very cute little cafe a block or two away from the beach and boardwalk. It's small but efficient. We ate here for breakfast one morning and they accommodated us quickly. Staff was very friendly and food was very good. However, it just took very long for the food to come out. It wasn't very busy and we... More
