Between Bay Head and Seaside Heights, NJ is the charming town of Lavallette.  At just under 2,000 people, the town has a small downtown area with restaurants, shops, coffee and ice cream shops.

At the suggestion of locals, I enjoyed a fun lunch at Crab’s Claw Inn, a popular casual restaurant for decades, that serves seafood staples such as crab cakes and oysters, plus draft beer and cocktails. 601 Grand Central Ave. (Rt 35). I loved the warm, casual atmosphere and good service.

For ice cream check out Iceberg Ice Cream at 403 Grand Central Ave. They make all of their ice cream in-house. The coconut was great!! Kohr’s is a great spot for frozen custard at 507 Grand Central Ave.

Lava Java is a fun spot for breakfast, lunch or coffee. 500 Grand Central Ave.
