Brown’s Restaurant review image

Browns Restaurant

If there’s one reason to wake up before 8am on a summer Saturday morning, it’s to make it to Brown’s before the line is so long that you can barely see the boardwalk shack from the end of it. Pretty much everyone knows about this place, so if you arrive past 9:30am, there will be layers of bicycles lined up across the boardwalk and lines both to sit down for breakfast and to take donuts to go. But once you’ve waited, you’ll be rewarded with the best donuts on the entire Shore. They’re cakey on the inside, crispy on the outside, and served hot in six flavors, like vanilla, honey, and cinnamon sugar. The breakfast itself is also solid, but mostly it’s just a way to skip the much-longer to-go line and get your donuts brought to a table instead.
