Our Top 5 Avon, NJ, Restaurants
1. Seed to Sprout
You don’t need to be vegan to enjoy the healthy, plant-based eats at this restaurant! Seed to Sprout has something for everyone. On the menu, you’ll find dishes made with fresh, organic, and local ingredients. Options include breakfast and brunch, sandwiches and lunch bowls, soups, sides, smoothies, and more. Seed to Sprout also serves dinner on Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m.
2. Maeberrie Market
Maeberrie Market is a relatively new restaurant that has quickly become one of the best brunch spots in Avon. Diners rave about the fluffy pancakes, roasted cauliflower soup, and toast with homemade ricotta. You can also choose from a wide range of sandwiches and sides. Tip: Bring a bottle of champagne or prosecco and treat yourself to an orange sorbet mimosa. You’re on vacation, after all!
If you’re searching for a taste of Lousiana, look no further than Clementine’s. This New Orleans-style restaurant serves Creole and Cajun classics exploding with flavor. We love the spicy seafood jambalaya, boneless BBQ pork ribs, and fried catfish with mashed potatoes. No matter which dish you choose, you can expect it to be served with Southern hospitality.
4. Avon Pavilion
The Avon Pavilion is a staple at the Jersey Shore. It’s been around for over 20 years, and after Hurricane Sandy hit in 2014, the oceanfront restaurant was completely rebuilt. Today, diners can enjoy homemade breakfast and lunch specialties with a picture-perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s true what they say — the only thing better than the view, is the food!
5. The Columns
Ambiance: Lively & Fun
There’s nothing better than live music at the beach, and the Columns offers fantastic entertainment in a unique setting. Head to the Seashore Colonial Revival Mansion for dinner and choose from popular dishes like pan-seared sea scallops, lobster ravioli, and chicken florentine. Or, come for happy hour and order a cocktail (or two) before the music starts!
