Jersey Boys hands down!

The Seacoast Grill isn't highlighted to accept a vote. It is a great place for breakfast. They serve ' The Big Breakfast' for only $3.99 you get 2 eggs, potatoes, choice of meats, toast. Wow! The best part it's Good, Fresh and the new remodel makes it so inviting. That my vote!

I forgot to mention West Coast Cafe is pet friendly to ;)

Katy's is getting my vote, though Wave is definitely right next to them in my book. Think it's kind of in poor taste that Jersey Boys is offering coupons to everyone that votes for them. That's basically no different than buying someone's vote in my opinion.
Malinda March 26, 2012 at 07:39 PM
My vote's for Jersey Boys! I love that place and, Mike, I think it's great they want to give back to the customers that support them. I don't see any other restaurants doing that. A little appreciation goes a long way especially in this economy!

Katie's is the best place to start the day with a Bedhead and coffee served up by the Sunshine Girls! O. Alvarez IBLG

Ruth March 26, 2012 at 10:04 PM
Hey! What about IB Forum!!!!! The best buttermilk pancakes!!!! Best prices! you can watch your favorite sports and news channels and meet your neighbors at the same time.
Megan March 26, 2012 at 11:15 PM
West Coast Cafe ALL THE WAY! I LOVE IT! This was my first fav spot to go when I moved here, and still is. My husband and I can easily walk there and grab a fav drink, snack, or meal. U also get a punch card w/your name on it. Each coffe/smoothie purchase goes toward getting a free drink once your card is full, The staff there is great to! They're all friendly, inviting, patient, and happy to serve you! It's like going to a family member's bistro. They have a great creative menue to select from. If you're feeling inventive, create your own anything you want. Any time I have tried something new, or created some new concoction, they've always come by to make sure I'm happy w/it. My Mother-in-law loves it and makes a point to go every morning when she comes to visit! They also have free wifi. I've never had a bad experience there. The atmosphere is great to! They have indoor/outdoor seating, art, games, things to read, and toys for your little ones. They support local artists and the farmer's market, so they aren't just people oriented but community oriented. People often bring thier pets with them, sit back, relax, and stay a while, :) And if you like bagles, I highly recommend you try the BTO! It's one of my fav things on the menue :)

Katy's Biscuits and Gravy with two poached eggs IS Heaven on Earth!...Katy gets my vote hands-down!
Cris Justin March 27, 2012 at 07:47 AM
El Cilantro has this "Supreme Breakfast Burrito"... 3 eggs, beans, home fries, cheese & choice of ham, bacon, chorizo or sausage. I get bacon & sausage. My wife likes to add Salsa Fresca. Take your pick from their BOMB hot sauce bar... OMG! HUGE and so good!
Pat March 27, 2012 at 11:39 AM
Jersey Boys is the best! The food is amazing and the staff is great! They make you feel like family!!!!! Pat

Food, value and service make The Wave best place in IB hands down
Chico&The Man March 27, 2012 at 11:19 PM
the restaurant that sat at date and seacoast had the best IB breakfast ever well that was back in 77- 1981 Tender, gentle scrambled eggs paired with rich, buttery lobster.flour tortillas with refried beans and coffee.. lobster bisque crab breakfast casserole the best pancakes ..,
Michael Chavez March 28, 2012 at 02:29 PM
The only people that voted for Jersey Boys are the employees who voted multiple times. That place started out ok when it first opened but has gone downhill since. Very disappointed in that place and would be shocked if that place is open much longer.
Malinda March 28, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Why are people such haters on this board? I support all locally-owned restaurants in IB, including Jersey Boys. Have any of you ever even met the young couple that owns it? They are so nice and just had a cute little baby. The wife is in on the weekends with the baby quite often. They have a really cool dog too. People on here are just mean. Their food is fantastic! Best thing to open in IB in YEARS!!
Kim March 28, 2012 at 03:40 PM
I think that alot of people are voting and haven't even tried the other places. I think this contest is pitting local business against one another and I think it's wrong. We are a community and should be supporting one another, not bashing local businesses. Places shouldn't be rewarding voters for their votes, people shouldn't vote multiple times and no one should be bashing IB's local businesses. If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. All the businesses above have their own unique qualities and should be frequented by all. .
Mike March 28, 2012 at 03:41 PM
Malinda, 3 of 27 comments state a personal opinion about disliking Jersey Boys Diner, and that warrants a "why are you people such haters on this board", and "people on here are just mean" statement? Opinions vary, I've had a few good meals at JBD, but nothing to write home about. I'm from the east coast, and most of my family is in Jersey. That place truly is "east meets west" when you consider they charge $8.00 for a hot dog. I'm honestly blown away how many people rave about how good it is. Has anyone had the "specialty" fish and chips? Three chunks of overcooked fish the size of my thumb, is hardly worth it. Tastes and opinions vary, the only reason I'll go there is for the Yuenglings beer they brought in. Best thing on the menu, and best idea so far.
Chico&The Man March 28, 2012 at 03:45 PM
R u kidding $8.00 for hot dog now that's beyond foul
TheBigCheese March 28, 2012 at 03:48 PM
KATYS. By far. My home away from Home. Can study, hang with friends or hold a good conversation with the lovely and inviting staff. And that's not even including the food. IT'S DELICIOUS. I swear, no matter what you order or what concoction of drink they whip up for you, it's hard not to fall in love. Katy is a head-strong woman with a great business going for her.
Justin Austin March 28, 2012 at 03:56 PM
Im sure the people are nice at Jersey Boys and the prices were cheap at first to reel you in but come on Malinda calling someone a "hater" cause there food is overated. I had a fish taco and seriously one of the worst I have ever eaten in my life and they charged $10 bucks. The coffee there is descent but besides that it is not worth the money...
Mike March 28, 2012 at 03:56 PM
Kim, I agree with some of what you say, but stating opinion isn't bashing. I don't go to JBD because I don't like the food, it's that simple. The people there have been pretty great for the most part, but again i just don't like the food. (and don't want to pay $8.00 for something I can better myself at home for a fraction of the price. I'm certain that the owners of JBD, or any business, would much rather hear negative feedback than none at all. How does a company review it's policies, procedures, product value, etc. if they don't get feedback? Both positive and negative are important. From the posts here JBD has MANY more likes than dislikes anyhow, that's important to note.
Cris Justin March 28, 2012 at 08:14 PM
I'm not gonna slam anybody, but I am a die-hard East Coast Guy & the BEST Subs, Philly Cheese-Steak, Deli Sandwiches & Hot Dogs in town are DEFINITELY at SubSmarT Deli: 1231 Palm Ave, & they DELIVER free too! Outstanding healthy selections, wraps, soups & salads as well. Also BOMB Sushi on Fridays & Saturdays too!
Mike G March 28, 2012 at 10:55 PM
Not technically in I.B. but the chilaquiles at Jaliscos are freaking superb breakfast fare.
Betty Jane Emmons March 30, 2012 at 01:06 AM
Katys cafe has my vote for the great service, warm enviroment, good food, great coffee.
Jim Gardner March 30, 2012 at 06:54 PM
I say Wave Cafe but I'm going to try Seacoast Grill & IB Forum for breakfast some time..
Kim L Myers March 31, 2012 at 05:41 PM
Now that the insanity of the voting is over, I want to add a few notes. First of all, Katy's has always had punch cards for her drinks.....buy 9 and get the 10th free. But beyond the cards, amazing food and warm, welcoming people, Katy's has ALWAYS given back to our community. Some events may be community wide events where her name is proudly posted, but she has also been extremely generous to the little causes in I.B. that carry no glory, but are valuable beyond measure! Don't take my word for it though. Stop in and judge for yourself! This Katy's patron will be happy to meet you!
Chico&The Man March 31, 2012 at 05:56 PM
1st place katy's 2nd place jersey boys......final...................
