Summertime at the Jersey Shore: Ocean City Edition

Over the years I’ve gotten to visit a handful of shore towns in New Jersey. There all a bit different from each other. The culture ranges from a bit raucous (Seaside, Point Pleasant, Wildwood) to fancier (Bayhead, Spring Lake) to working class/middle class (Belmar, Bradley Beach). The Jersey Shore despite what the eponymously named show […]

The Rood Interview: Rook Coffee Roasters

Rook Roasters is a rapidly growing Monmouth County (NJ) based chain of coffee shops. I first fell in love with them after my girlfriend’s sister introduced us to the “New Orleans style.” It’s a dark blend which uses chickory that is mindblowing. I get it with soy milk – not something that normally works but […]

Review: The Donut and Coffee Company (Farmingdale, NJ)

DoCo Coffee Company If you’re on the way to the Jersey Shore this summer and have a hankering for a sweet, DoCo, the Donut and Coffee company in Farmingdale I can highly recommend. It’s situated off Rte 33/34 in a small building with a red and black front door. The interior features a red, black […]

Co-owned by Kimmee Masi of the band Our Last Sin, it’s a quaint but fun bakery located at 550 Cookman Avenue. Rock Memorabilia adorns the […]

Street Festival Foods: Deep Fried Oreos

While the U.S  isn’t the only country that loves deep fried treats (I’m looking at you Scotland), deep fried Oreos are very American. In the Northeast they’re almost as ubiquitous at street festivals as zeppoles, funnel cakes and sausage and peppers. These golden brown treats were 6 for $5 down at the Memorial Weekend festival […]

Teddy Bear Coffee Cup Lid

Not much to add. I got a kick out of this silly coffee cup lid. Coffee never ceases to amaze. It pairs with any sweet. Case in point, I had this coffee to cut the sweetness of a simple hot fudge sundae on the Asbury Park boardwalk. Good times.

Delponte’s Bakery in Bradley Beach, New Jersey – Gluten Free Cookies and All of the Good Things

Delponte’s is THE bakery of Bradley Beach. Seriously. It’s the only one (not counting a Cupcake place). Thankfully though, it’s a really good one. You walk inside and it’s wall to wall baked goods. Over the course of a couple of weeks I tried many items. (Tasty baked goods are a vice of mine). My […]
