You and your friends aren’t saying much besides the occasional comment about not needing those tequila shots last night and needing coffee right now. You definitely don’t want to wait 90 minutes for a table at the Chegg (Chicken Or The Egg), so walk a block over to Uncle Will’s. This diner in the middle of Beach Haven has been around since 1965 and has a lot of space and tables that work for big groups. Most dishes come with home fries, but for $1.50 you can substitute them for a full stack of blueberry or banana chocolate chip pancakes, which you should absolutely do. They even have a few wines (all from New Jersey) available in case you want to ditch the coffee for some hair of the dog.
