Cafe 360

Honestly, you can get a decent cup of coffee at dunkin' donuts, nothing special but it's about as good as you'll find. Now, if you want to try something good, you should go to Cafe 360 for lunch and GREAT gelato. The atmosphere is great, I highly recommend it.

I don't think there's a good place to get to get ANYTHING in Lakewood, other than getting mugged.

HAHA!
Lakewood is a very unique culturally diverse town, with a lot of history. There are some tough neighborhoods, like any other town with some low-income areas. I wouldn't call it a tourist destination, but the Blue Claws are there too!
Besides, it must be ok, since it shares a border with my town, Brick.

If I remember right F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is set there, or he lived there or some connection......

Anyway, support the local shops tell us where the good coffee is!!

IT is interesting to watch the black hats walk around Lakewood, especially on a Saturdays. I am referring to The Large local Jewish religious group in that town which strictly follows its religious beliefs and are not permit to drive on certain days. The strict dress code and numbers in the streets observing Sabbath is not a normal site. My Brother in Law is also a Police Sargent In that town. So be careful Whats is up G!
Check out the Sears outlet store on Airport Blvd. in Lakewood next time you are in the market for Appliances.

Go BlueClaws!
