Aunt Betty’s Ice Cream
2100 Asbury Ave
Very cool ice cream spot perfect for the family. The Rocky Road is sooo good. The line may be out the door but it gives you a chance to decide what to get. It is especially great if you can walk there from your vacation spot . However, but street parking is available. Aunt Betty's has 2 locations. We prefer the vibe of the listed location.
Crazy Susan Cookies
1345 West Ave and on the Boardwalk
Cookies are fabulous! Cookies are about the same price as a cupcake or an ice cream and totally worth it. We like to bring Crazy Susan Cookies to our friends enjoying their vacation in Ocean City.
Emily's Ocean Room Cafe at the Flanders
19 E. 11th Street
We like Emily's because its a little different from other Ocean City options.The Flanders is a great spot to walk around and check out the historic and haunted hotel and Cape May-esque gift shops. If walking around - check out the ballroom level where events are held.
Finally a great spot for healthy eating on the boardwalk. We like their coconut shrimp (did we say healthy ?). It comes with awesome sticky rice and a side salad with delicious dressing.

Jon and Patty’s
637 Asbury Avenue
Great spot for breakfast and lunch. One of the few coffee shops in town. We enjoy sitting outside on Asbury while enjoying coffee and the veggie bomb omelettes. Free wifi.
Johnny B Good Ice Cream Parlor
14th and Asbury
Check their calendar because there is always something fun for the family going on there at night during the summer. We like the Hunk'A Hunka Chocolate sundae.
Mallon's Sticky Buns
1340 Bay Avenue
The smell is so wonderful when you pull up to the front of the store. The taste is even better especially after warming in the oven or microwave. We dream of 'em.
1258 West Ave
Good spot for brick oven pizza and pasta. We love their pasta dishes. They give you more than enough for 1 person. We don’t suggest eating there since it is usually packed. They deliver and do take out. They do not take credit cards so bring cash or plan to stop at the bank machine at Wawa next door.
Positively 4th Street Cafe
400 Atlantic Avenue
Stop on by for a cup of coffee while admiring the local art on the walls.
715 E 8th St
Great breakfast spot. Relax and watch the surfing videos in their cool restaurant. Reminiscent of a day in Key West.
