Restaurant Review

Sam A m, located in the Paulus Hook section of Jersey is one of the top Breakfast/Lunch spots in Northern NJ.


This charming 22 seat eatery is popular with the locals who come for creative breakfast, brunch and lunch food made with quality, fresh ingredients sourced locally.


The changing daily menu is influenced by the availability of seasonal ingredients.


Coffee enthusiasts will enjoy their freshly brewed cup of Stumptown Coffee. This Portland, Oregon specialty coffee is cold press brewed without heat at room temperature water for over 12 hours. The taste in unforgettable! It's full bodied, smooth with low acidity, a chocolate finish and a frothy head,


The restaurant is the creation of owners Sam Kirk and his fiancé Amanda who have teamed up with Chef Francis Samu. Prior to opening Sam Am, Sam acquired his restaurant management skills working under Jody Williams who runs the successful Buvette restaurant, a French influenced eatery in the West Village, NYC.


Chef Samu received his formal culinary training in classical French cuisine at the Culinary Arts Institute of New York City. He later honed his cooking skills in the Carolinas where he acquired a knowledge of southern cooking styles before joining Sam A M.


The interior decor has a definite charm with sunlight beaming in from the large windows. There are white walls, warm wood trim , and a large blackboard with daily specials.


The staff is very friendly, enthusiastic and attentive


Sam A M is open Weekdays: 6:30am, Weekends: 8am -3:30pm. The Kitchen closes daily at 2:30.
