    A taste of the (classy) shore in good ol' Hoboken. Sure the view's beautiful, but cut down on your wait time by calling ahead and putting your name on the list: (201) 222-3797.

    Best breakfast for miles and miles, but come early or in off hours. Its quite popular. Hit vanilla chai is awesome. And the pesto infusion skilled is tasty, lean and filling.

    Best place to have breakfast in town. You can’t go wrong with one of these: Bananas Foster Waffles, Grande Huevos Rancheros, Wilbur Skillet, Lobster Benedict, or Western Omelette.

    Well established breakfast selections, yummy and filling. The place and the location are half the taste. Want a good morning? Get it at Turning Point.

    I give a lot of credit for the cool idea to use rock candy as the sugar for coffee...But I've never been greeted nicely here, and that counts for a lot. Eh, the view is wonderful but sour atmosphere.

    It will be the turning point in your day once you taste the fresh press coffee! Also a great view of the city. An awesome place to enjoy your breakfast and brunch.

    Decent brunch. There's a separate spot to check in for indoor and outdoor seating. Don't get them confused or your wait for a table will double!

    Best breakfast in Hoboken hands down! Try the Wilbur or Balanced Breakfast Combo. Pedro and Josmari are the best servers. Try to sit in their areas.

    Turning Point is packed on the weekends, so if you are solo or a party of two consider sitting at the counter.

    The waffles probably not the best on the menu . The fruits were sweet and ripped but the waffle soaked up easily

    Very good food. Great for commuters. Weekends are a mob scene so get there early or just be prepared to wait. Worth it though. Try the fritata - very good.

    KIDTIP: Very kid friendly. Allow strollers in even when crowded. Generic Childrens Menu. Kids can play on pier while waiting for table.

    I used to go to the Brick location, which was really good. The food here is still good, but the service was awful. We never got 1 thing we ordered. They also don't give you timers for French press.
