Rex Weighs in with Best Eggs Benedict on the Jersey Shore: Dorcas Bay Head Restaurant

Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

About twice a summer, Rex gets a hankerin’ for eggs benedict for breakfast, and lures the girls out on their bicycles for breakfast at Dorcas Bay Head Restaurant. Our first visit to Dorcas this year was on Father’s Day, and the second time was yesterday, the last Sunday of “Lifeguard Summer,” (June 15-Labor Day) in Bay Head, New Jersey, the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. Rex gave his eggs benedict four stars and thought it was beautiful enough for a photo, but by the time I got my camera out of the bag, he had eaten half of it!

I had a classic cheddar, onion, and bacon omelette. London and Maddie shared a Belgian waffle with whipped cream. We had hoped (and asked) for strawberries on top, but the dish came with a disappointing fruit cup involving grapes and cantaloupe. Still, the two girls demolished it with gusto and, spurred on by the whipped cream, made me pinky promise to come back for “Ice Cream Under the Awning” tonight. Unfortunately, we failed to note that Dorcas is closed on Monday nights, even Labor Day Monday nights, so they strolled out to Central Market for some frozen treats.

Dorcas Bay Head
Corner of Bridge and Lake Avenues
58 Bridge Avenue
Bay Head, NJ
(732) 899-9365

Open Monday - Friday, 11am-3pm
Saturday and Sunday, 10am-3pm
and certain nights (Friday and Saturday?) in the summer for ice cream under the awning

Do call first, as I’m also not sure whether Dorcas is open year-round, more likely just Memorial Day through Labor Day
