“Breakfast is great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

We go to Ocean Grove a lot and have found the perfect spot for breakfast. Everything is made fresh and omelette are huge. The place is very small so getting a table is awkward. It is totally worth it.

Hi Joyce,
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. You are right we are a great breakfast destination. Located in the center of historic Ocean Grove we are poised to have the best views, and we are the only place you will get an oversized home-style omelet. We have daily specials and are open all day and evenings too! We look forward to your next visit with us. Let us know when you are in.

Hi Bryan,
We are small but mighty. They always say good things come in small packages. We like to think that's true for us and we are delighted that you agree. Yvonne's café is located in what used to be a small coffee house/café, but we are so much more than a café. Check out our dinner menus sometimes, next week we will be adding more to our menu including home made southern style gluiness baby back ribs, with mac and cheese and jalapeño corn bread, comfort food for the winter months. We have a half price pasta night on Wednesday nights that features over a dozen different pasta choices. Our menus is hands down the most diverse in Ocean Grove and recently a major reviewer said she thought we had the best menu in the surrounding area including Asbury Park! We look forward to your next visit, let us know when you are back.

“Corn Yellow Squash Curry Soup to Die For”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Yvonne's Cafe is a perfect fit into this beautiful seaside victorian community. This was our first time eating at this establishment and we certainly plan on going back. Their soups are freshly made on site, and we were lucky enough that they were serving their Corn Yellow Squash Curry Soup.

Hi Ralph,
Thanks for noticing that our soups are homemade. We are so glad that you stopped in and discovered the best kept secret in Ocean Grove. Yvonne's café! We are open all year long, all day long and evening for dinner. Every single thing we make is made to order with our guest in mind and heart. When we say that food is our passion we really mean it. Chef Oleg will oftentimes come out and speak with our guests, or check in and see if there is anything they wasn't made especially for them. Each one of our guests are treated like family. Our homemade soups are always made on site and they are always amazing. From our country style Chicken Soup to our Acorn Squash or Curry soups. We always have something for everyone. We look forward to your next visit, Let us know when you come in.

“I Love Yvonne's Cafe!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

The wait staff is sooooo friendly.....I traveled to Ocean Grove on my own on vacation and I felt totally at home and comfortable going into a restaurant alone.
The food is fantastic and Max was absolutely so helpful with suggestions on the menu.

Hi Ginny,
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you had such a wonderful time and that you felt so welcome. That's our goal. Many people who come to Ocean Grove for a get away, find Yvonne's and we become their destination. We are open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We always have eclectic and delicious specials, made to order. Nothing at Yvonne's is prefabricated or sitting under a heat lamp. Each order is treated as an opportunity to make our guests feel like we are open just for them. So glad you had a great time in OG, come back soon and stop in and see us.
