The Buttered Biscuit is one of the top Northern Jersey Shore Breakfast//lunch Restaurants. If you are in the Bradley Beach area, this is a must stop for breakfast or lunch, you will not find equal or higher quality food on the norther Jersey Shore.
This 36 seat storefront café is owned and operated by the talented husband and wife team, Dave and Liz McAllister who were the past owners of the Honeysuckle Café in Bradley Beach.
The success of the Buttered Biscuit is in the food prepared with freshest quality ingredients without the use of fat or greasy substances to enhance the flavor.
Both the breakfast & lunch menus are well executed and creatively prepared using high quality, fresh ingredients.
The gravy for their biscuits is made from scratch every couple of days because it needs a day for the spices to set. The recipe for their gravy relies on quality ingredients for flavor rather than fat.
Make sure your order comes with the biscuits, toast is an option.
They use high-quality beef and pork sausage, fresh herbs and other quality ingredients.
Packaged foods and ingredients are also avoided. As an example, the asparagus, baby spinach and tomatoes in their veggie omelet are fresh, not frozen. The granola is made from scratch.
The interior is attractive, comfortable, and brightly lit. There are two dining areas, one with counter seating. The dining area with tables is a bit more formal with more natural lighting.
In the warmer months there is outside dining, though being located on Main Street, you would have to contend with noise and exhaust from passing cars.
The Buttered Biscuit is open seven days/ week from 8am-3pm.
