I found myself thirsty and needing to waste a little time before meeting my brother the other day in Red Bank. I stopped in at Serendipity's Delight and treated myself to one of their iced teas. It was good and the patio was a pleasant place to sit and read while waiting to meet my brother. This past week I was wanting something sweet so I stopped in again and tried their flourless chocolate cake with a cup of coffee (Stone Cup Roasters). The cake was a slice of heaven and the coffee was just right. I spent about 45 minutes on the patio drinking my coffee, eating my cake, reading my book and talking to several people coming and going.
There is no WiFi here because the owner said she wanted people to talk to each other, not just plop down with food, beverage and keep their nose in a computer. Still, the staff is very attentive and the goodies there are delicious. I'm trying their cheesecake next visit. I hope they do well. Red Bank really needs a place like this where folks can just sit with a cup of coffee or tea and relax and talk.
It's located in the old Captain D's building. Give the place a try.
JiT "Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone's lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means that you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." ~Rick Warren

10 bucks they have WIFI before the end of the year

I love Serendipity Delight! They have potato soup on Tuesdays and it is yummy!
