Surfside looks like pretty much every other breakfast spot down the Shore. It has a ’60s feel, with wood-beam ceilings, teal (the 1964 Pantone Color of the Year, we assume) accents everywhere, and a full-wall mural of the Wildwood boardwalk that looks like a particularly talented second-grader painted it. But unlike the other breakfast places in town, Surfside has really good food that doesn’t just stick to the standards you’ll find everywhere else. There are fluffy lemon-ricotta pancakes, macadamia nut french toast, and a Greek dish called “The Hangover,” with eggs, chipped beef, tomato, spinach, and feta that will bring you back from whatever you got into the night before.
