Inventive cafe fare is Bon Appetit Cafe's calling card, and its menu draws from American, Italian, and Portuguese influences. Serving food from early morning until late afternoon, the café incorporates fresh seafood, pasta, paninis, and eggs into its dishes. Standard coffee and espresso drinks pair with fruit-covered waffles, cheeseburger club sandwiches, and shrimp salad.
Before supplying a single item, the proprietors of Eagle Specialty Coffee spent an entire year sampling coffees, juices, pastries, and other goodies. That meticulous search resulted in the shop's 13 private-label coffee varieties, which range from Brazilian Santos to Kenyan AA, all prepared with with the classic pour-over method. Eagle's espresso based drinks have been finely tuned to consistently deliver top quality espresso, cappuccino, latte and other espresso based drinks. For caffeine alternatives, highly trained baristas make freshly extracted juice onsite, blend fruit smoothies and frappes in six different flavors, and steep full-leaf teas. To complement your beverage, Eagle Specialty Coffee offers bagels with homemade tuna salad, delicious blueberry muffins, classic cranberry orange scones, and other fine pastries.
Village Coffee isn’t just a place to get a cuppa and run. It’s a place to lean back into soft leather chairs with a hot latte, or gather at a table of fresh-baked sweets and good conversation. Striving to be more than just a coffee shop, Village Coffee encourages its visitors to enjoy the camaraderie that surrounds coffee and sandwiches. Mornings, stop by for breakfast sandwiches, fresh muffins, and hot or iced coffee drinks, or swing by during the afternoon for sandwiches, wraps, smoothies, and salads.
At Locals, you won't just rub elbows with regulars who frequently come in for deli sandwiches and gourmet soups?you'll take a bite out of local history too. Each of the shop's sandwiches is named after a hero, figure, or well-known place in Rumson. There's the Under the Bridge sandwich, for example, also known as a tuna salad on wheatberry bread. Or, the McCarter's Cow Crossing, a rare roast beef sandwich garnished with arugula and spicy horseradish. The soups and salads, meanwhile, might not have proper names, but they're just as inventive. Chefs blend up golden gazpacho with spicy bits of jalapeno and avocado, and toss salads with chick peas, whole red cherry peppers, craisins, pine nuts, or whatever else the customer wants. Pizzas, meanwhile, are pretty traditional, if you don't count the premium toppings (such as fried eggplant) that is.
