AMY’S OMELETTE HOUSE
Address: 444 N. Ocean Blvd., Long Branch, NJ 07740
Breakfast is a meal that I very rarely eat out for. Most of the time it might consist of a bowl of cereal, a yogurt, or some toast, but sometimes it’s interesting to go and sample breakfast at various restaurants. So, when you think of an omelette, you might think of something that kind of resembles an egg neatly folded over with cheese and other fillings on the inside. At Amy’s, however, they take that and add more eggs, more fillings, and more cheese, and serve up one gigantic omelette to you on a plate. This place has become known for their supersized egg offerings, and it’s really quite something. Today was my second time coming to Amy’s. The first time I fondly remember waiting about 45 minutes at the place before getting seated in the bustling dining room. The place was so packed last time that I was surprised we got seated right away today. One thing that could have been attributed to that was that we went during Sunday brunch last time, which probably wasn’t the best idea. But, it was well worth it.
When you look at the menu, you can see why it’s called the Omelette House. Sporting a two-page spread of 220 different omelette choices, you will probably have a tough time of initially choosing one to try. My friend and I sat around for about 10 minutes before eventually deciding on what we wanted to get. I went with a Super Belly Buster, which consisted of ham, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, peppers, onions, cheese, and two pork rolls on top. It was also made country-style, where they mixed in potatoes with the rest of the ingredients as well. Although extremely filling, it really was delicious. Everything was seasoned well and had great flavor. The omelette was served on the side with some toast, really rounding out the total breakfast experience. I couldn’t fathom anyone who has managed to try all of the omelettes on the menu (that would probably take years). My friend and I did some quick number crunching, and we estimated that it would be about $2,000 worth of omelettes!
Here are my rankings for Amy’s:
Food: 5 / 5
Everything was fresh and really tasted delicious. Although I stayed with some traditional flavors this time around, I hope to branch out to other unusual omelettes in subsequent visits.
Atmosphere: 4 / 5
The restaurant is decorated in a really homestyle fashion, and the dining room was really nice and open.
Service: 4.5 / 5
Our waitress was really friendly and came back to check up on us during the meal.
Price: 5 / 5
The omelettes are all priced at $8.50 – $10, but for how big of a portion the omelette is (and for how stuffed I always am), I think it’s a really reasonable price.
Overall: 18.5 / 20 (93%)
