In a true family endeavor, Bruce Fischer, aka Pops, and his son-in-law Brian Neiman are pleased to announce the opening of Pop’s Corner, a chef-inspired breakfast, lunch, and brunch destination serving Point Pleasant Beach and beyond.
Guests will find Pop’s to be a casual, family-friendly neighborhood spot that fits right in at its beach location. With 54 seats, the spacious and bright corner restaurant also has a specialty market for grab-and-go food, pastries, and gourmet sauces, dressings, spices, olive oils, and more.
Conveniently located across from the Point Pleasant Beach NJ Transit train station and a 10-minute walk from the beach, Pop’s is easy to get to for those coming and going from NYC and North Jersey.
Pops and Brian
“Pops and I both have strong ties to the food industry,” says Brian Neiman, COO. “My father-in-law worked at restaurants in high school and after college and always dreamed of owning his own one day. And my father worked in the food industry, so I always had a passion for cooking and sourcing great specialty food items. When we found this location, we seized the opportunity to create a family-inspired breakfast and lunch place. We aim to offer year-round residents and summer visitors of the Point Pleasant area a great local dining option.”
Pops will feature a modern, Americana-style menu that pulls inspiration from all across the nation. The breakfast menu features several omelettes: Pop’s Corner (smoked pastrami, cheddar cheese, peppers, fried onions), the Leo (lox, eggs, and onions, stuffed with caper cream cheese), and the Farmer (egg whites, spinach, onions herb pesto), a number of Bennys, and fried chicken and waffle (crispy Southern fried chicken on top of a crispy waffle and honey butter).
It wouldn’t be a New Jersey breakfast spot, however, without Pop’s signature breakfast sandwich (Pork Roll, egg, and cheese with home fries), as well as classic pancakes and waffles (traditional or gluten free), French toast or stuffed French toast (with Nutella, bananas, and whipped cream).
What’s for Breakfast?
Lighter breakfast fare includes the Fresh Start bowl (tri-color quinoa, roasted vegetables, kale, toasted oats, avocado, fried egg, with a lemon pesto sauce), avocado toast, and the Power Wrap (egg whites, spinach, cremini mushroom, tomatoes, onions on a whole wheat wrap) served with a fruit bowl. An assortment of breakfast meats, mix-ins, and sides/add-ons are available. A full kids’ menu is offered as well.
What’s for Lunch?
Lunch starts at 11 a.m. daily and includes burgers, sandwiches, and wraps as well as soups, appetizers, and salads. The burger, sandwich, and wrap lineup includes the Smash burger, the Serious steak sandwich, veggie melt, Inside Out tuna melt, pastrami Reuben, fried chicken sandwich, Buffalo chicken wrap, and grilled chicken Caesar wrap. The add-on sides includes house-made chips, fries, sweet potato fries, mac and cheese, vegetables, and a side salad.
As if this menu weren’t sweet enough, Pop’s has a fun selection of desserts: sorbet, a deep-dish chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce, and an ice cream sundae with toppings.
Beverages offered include coffee, matcha, chai, cold brew, tea, soda, juices, lemonade, orange juice, milk, and chocolate milk.
While you’re sipping your coffee and anticipating your meal, take a look around at the inspiring artwork of artist Peter Tunney. Since 1987, Tunney has delivered his messages, including “The Time Is Always Now,” “Fear Less, Love More,” and “Change the Way You See Everything,” to a vast and global audience. In addition to his paintings, Tunney’s dynamic textual images blanket New York City as giant billboards.
Seating at Pop’s is first come, first served, and you can get delivery or pickup through all major apps. There is free street parking on Arnold Avenue and in the municipal lot on Rte. 35 South, the block before Arnold Avenue.
