Turning Point of Hoboken | 1420 Frank Sinatra Dr, Hoboken, NJ
Welcome to the Brunch Edition!
I am obsessed with brunch. Obsessed. The fact that I can roll out of bed around 11 am, grab a friend or two, and enjoy amped up breakfast dishes (and an adult beverage or two) thrills me to no end.
The Turning Point of Hoboken has seriously got it going on for brunch! Their full menu includes salads, sandwiches and the like but they also have a wide and varied menu of mouthwatering breakfast-type eats. As if things couldn’t get any better; they allow BYOB. Who needs bottomless Mimosas when you can show up with your own bottle (or two) of Prosecco? Just order some fresh squeezed OJ and you’re all set!
The Seasonal Fruit Bowl is a great light starter. It is plenty of fruit for two people and is unbelievably fresh. This particular bowl had strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, grapes, mango, and honeydew melon. I seriously hate when honeydew melon pieces are under-ripe and bitterly crunchy, so I was elated to find that these pieces were so sweet and ripe. Yes!!!
Sometimes I like to pretend that I really want to eat healthy at brunch. This menu has you covered with a section of choices that may be a bit better than those delicious fried and buttered things. The Fit and Trim Combo is just fun: egg whites, spinach, tomatoes and turkey sausage in a honey wheat wrap with a fruit cup and oatmeal cup with fixings (brown sugar and raisins). The spinach and tomatoes do make the wrap a tad watery but the flavor is great. The oatmeal is thick and hearty and the fruit, again, is so fresh.
This is corn bread all grown up: apples, caramel sauce, toasted pecans and vanilla bean mascarpone. Who knew that corn bread would make such an amazing French toast? This dish is sweet and savory and – if you love corn bread – you will go crazy for it. I also have to give Turning Point kudos for their deliciously thick and smoky bacon.
Turning Point of Hoboken is a thrilling option for brunch in the area. Their breakfast menu is extensive enough to ensure that you will be a repeat customer. I know I will be!
