Restaurant Review

Kaya's is one of the best vegetarian & vegan friendly restaurants on the Jersey Shore.

Located in downtown Belmar on the corner of Main & 10th Ave., this BYOB restaurant was formerly the Veggie works and is now managed by Chef/owner Omar who was a waiter and cook at Veggie Works.

Their menu dishes are well prepared with fresh ingredients, many of them organically grown.

Their service is friendly, laid back, and slow.

Kaya's Kitchen also offers a fresh vegetable juice and fruit smoothie bar, and a display case with homemade dishes to take-out.

They do not accept credit cards, it's cash only.

There is live entertainment, music & poetry to complement the laid back ambiance.

Kaya's Kitchen is open Tuesday - Thursday: 11:00 am - 9:00 pm, Friday - Saturday: 11:00 am - 10:00 pm& Sunday: 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
