Gilchrist Restaurant
The budget-friendly brunch joint is great for breakfast after a rowdy evening. Gilchrist offers expertly-cooked, home-style brunch plates. Sides include the classics, but you could order the fried codfish for something completely different. The blueberry pancakes are a highlight with their fluffy centers, as are the filling sandwiches. Plus, with outdoor seating, you get stunning views of the boats in the marina. Service is friendly and accommodating as well.

Lenox Cafe
Lenox Café is Atlantic City’s hidden gem. Get a taste of traditional Dominican culture; order the Mangu, plantains picked green and fried, mashed, mixed with salt, garlic, and oil in a traditional mortar and pestle then served with savory sausage, onions, and fried cheese. Pair it with a strong cup of Dominican coffee, and you’ll feel ready to take on the world—at least until lunch.
