Turning Point has several locations. Long Branch is the latest one I've visited but this review could be applied to any of their restaurants.
I know of no better place for breakfast. Food is great. Service is fast. For me, the highlight of the meal is a french press of gourmet coffee. Jamaican Blue Mountain is on that menu. That alone is worth the trip.

This place is supposedly well known and that is why we sat here because we heard a couple of people say that. The salad we got was fresh, the pancakes were delicious and the service was very very good. The waitress was kind enough to charge my phone for me and in general she was joking around a lot which was nice!

The food is great and the service is good. The Manager on Saturday was excellent
Had a party of 10 for brunch together and we had a nice time and everyone enjoyed their meal.

Note: The restaurant does not take reservations until the day of the reservation and the host will not seat you until the entire party has arrived.

Had lunch there today with an old colleague/friend and we both liked it. Notice that we didn't say "loved it." The restaurant is nice, the outside seating is pleasant and well appointed with umbrellas and shades. Seating was prompt, service professional and efficient, all with a smile. The menu is varied enough and the coffee and tea offerings plentiful, albeit a touch pricey. All the dishes on the menu read like mouthwatering favorites and choosing wasn't easy with all that good stuff. We finally settled on a chicken pesto panini and the vegetarian caprese panini. The food was presented in an appetizing fashion, with crispy tri-color chips, fresh salsa and in my case, a balsamic dressing to dunk the sandwich. It could have been truly great, since almost everything was fresh. What disappointed was the mozzarella: billed as fresh, it materialized as pieces from a supermarket deli pre-sliced rectangular log. Why skimp on something as simple as hand-sliced fresh mozzarella on this sandwich? It wouldn't break the bank and would have made a huge difference. The small touches that separate this good restaurant from a great one are well worth implementing. We will probably be back; all in all it wasn't the nightmare suggested by some reviewers, but also not quite the foodie heaven about which other raved. A nice touch is the coffee shop next door (same owner) where you can have a yummy cappuccino (soy milk available, yay!) while you wait for your table during busy times.

We attended a wedding in Long Branch, NJ. We ate breakfast at Turning Point, 3 mornings. Each morning my husband & I tried different items. Each breakfast was delicious, served with great presentation. We sat at the counter each morning, and interacted with the help. Every one was so friendly and cheerful. I wish we lived closer! The location was right next to our Hotel, Ocean Park and we enjoyed walking over, every morning. The staff treated us very, very nice.
