Great for breakfast. Healthy menu with many options and is a little overwhelming. Each season Joni tweaks the extensive menu of creative breakfast offerings, pressed sandwiches, and artistic salads. Her ingredients are wholesome, organic (and when called for, "oh not so organic") featuring a pulled-together medley of edible favorites - including delectable options for the gluten free-ers, vegetarians and vegans. The "all fresh fruit" smoothies and squeezed juices are worth queuing up for, as is the kids menu for mini dudes.

Camp Hero State Park is a 754-acre state park located on Montauk Point, New York. The park occupies a portion of the former Montauk Air Force Station.
