You want to get breakfast somewhere, but don’t feel like waiting an hour for one of the diners and then getting knocked out by some cream cheese-stuffed french toast and chipped beef covered in gravy. Go to The Local, a casual market right by the foot of the bridge in Ship Bottom, where you can sit outside and read the paper while drinking coffee and eating a pork roll, egg, and cheese. They also serve really good sandwiches until 7pm every day, so pick up a triple-decker turkey and swiss or a roast beef with horseradish cheddar on your way to the beach or as a snack for the road on your way off the island.
