Restaurant Review

This small breakfast and lunch cafe is considered by many Ocean City diners to be one of the best restaurants in Ocean City.

The Bongo Cafe and Grill is the creation of Co-owners Patricia "Patti" Davis and her husband and chef, Walter "Buddy" Hungerford. Patti Davis, having acquired a master's degree in holistic nutrition, brings her strong nutritional and vegan influence, and her desire to use Jersey fresh local produce. Many of the food selections are prepared with a creative twist.

The restaurant has a retro "summer beach" theme with 50's movie and beach memorabilia. The menu is packed with a very large variety of breakfast and lunch selections geared to please anyone from the traditionalist to the vegan and others with an imaginative palette.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Mon.-Thurs. Open 7am to 3pm. Serving breakfast and lunch. Fri.-Sat. Open 7am to 8pm. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sun. Open 8am to 8pm. They are open during the off-season with reduced hours and days.

They are pet friendly and will accommodate pets with cool water when dining on the outside patio area. Free WiFi is available for customers.
