Upper East Sider Joni opened her namesake eatery in 2000, at a time where Montauk was still just a quiet surfer and fishermen town. Now, Joni’s is THE go-to breakfast spot for all Montauk locals and summer vacationers.
Just south of Main Street, within walking distance of the beach and the Montauk village, Joni’s has become the obligatory pit-stop to kick-start the beach day with a healthy first meal. The tiny eatery has a hip surf & seaside vibe, with turquoise and yellow colors, vintage surf pictures on the walls, sunflowers and colorful outdoor picnic tables.
Joni’s serves an all-day menu until 4pm, but the best is to come for breakfast or a quick snack. Joni’s serves a large selection of healthy food and beverage options, including fresh juices and smoothies, wraps, sandwiches, bowls, salads, pastries… Everything is fresh and with high-quality organic ingredients, but the food is very simple and overall just ok.
Large selection of vegan & gluten free options
The biggest cons at Joni’s are the cramped long lines (especially during morning hangover peak-hours!) and the slow service. Seating is very limited – try to snatch a seat at one their outdoor picnic tables, or just get take-out and picnic on the beach. If you’re getting hangry and the line is too long, head to the neighboring Naturally Good Foods & Café instead.
Joni’s is where everyone in Montauk goes to kick off the beach day with a healthy bite. Come here after your morning surf session or yoga class.
Open daily 9am-4pm
