Chaos it is, but according to their postings, this is the way it should be. This is the perfect place when you are hanging out and have time for a leisurely meal with some awesome food. Those are the things that Josh’s (Josh’s Coastal Chaos) prides itself on. You can tell by the menu that a lot of heart and soul went into this menu. It is very creative with a lot of things you probably haven’t seen before. The staff was very friendly; I repeat very friendly.
First visit. Our coffee came in great big mugs. How nice to wrap my hands around a mug of coffee instead of a tiny coffee cup, and just chillax on a weekend morning. We noticed pineapple bacon on the menu and had to get that as a sort of breakfast appetizer. How different and creative. It just made me think how many other flavors of bacon there could be! I then chose the monkey French toast. Wow, what a hit, thick French toast with syrup and nuts and oh how beautiful and delish. My companion ordered a combination breakfast, it had a little bit of everything. He said everything was delicious, but we noticed a few things were missing from the plate. A few things came to the table with an apology from the waiter saying he preferred to bring out the plates that he took the orders for. Nice guy.
I’d have to say, I would bring visitors here as long as we had the time to spare. The food is fresh as well as creative, and those big mugs of coffee….
Second visit. This time I went with Sara, you know, Small Chick Big Deals, herself. A Friday morning we both had off. She had the biscuits and gravy. They came out steaming hot and she let me taste that sausage gravy. You can tell Josh knows his stuff, depth and flavor, you know this doesn’t come in a can. I had the Jersey deal, you know, pork roll. Lots of pork roll and done just right, no one wants rare pork roll, gotta have that little bit of crisp to it.
It was right between breakfast and lunch so Josh had a moment to speak to Sara. Seems they both went to the same high school. Small world, isn’t it. Josh had us taste his homemade waffles with syrup and ice cream. Dammit, now it’s going to be difficult to decide to go sweet or savory next meal here. Maybe I’ll just have to do both.
Sara’s #SCBD POV: I was so excited to come and finally try Josh’s Coastal Chaos! It’s a nice size restaurant, ideal for a leisurely breakfast with friends or family before a day on the beach. I loved the biscuits and gravy I had when we went– the dish itself was huge and filling! I also brought home leftovers as usual which were great the next day! It was nice to meet Josh in person after hearing so much about the restaurant! Not to mention, the waffle was a great treat to end our delicious, filling breakfast! I know I will definitely be back and hope you make it a destination next time you’re down by the Jersey Shore!
