The French toast is my fave!! They make their own fruit sauce/ spread for it which give a nice, sweet addition to the french toast. You dont need a lot of syrup at all. Shrimp and Grits is also a must have. The homemade sauce for your steak is delicious; oh and it has a little kick!! Ask the owner to make some for you to take home. Owner aims to please and his team is very attentive. Will be back again & again.
This restaurant is exceptional. The food is extraordinary, the staff is amazing, and I felt as if I was transported to a tropical vacation while eating breakfast! We tried shrimp and grits, salmon and grits and their incredible French toast. The Shrimp and Grits were the BEST I have ever eaten and I've had this dish all over the country. Everyone was beyond thrilled with their food as this was our first visit and we will definitely be back many times and will be delighted to bring friends.
Service is great, atmosphere is stylish, but the FOOD was AMAZING! The Shrimp and Grits were cooked to perfection and the added twist on creole is like nothing you?ve ever tasted. The Short Rib Eggs Benedict was like butter, so tender and tasty. The Amaretto Brioche French Toast with a side of fresh raspberry compote was the perfect combo?. Gotta check this place out!
We found another gem when searching for a black owned breakfast restaurant. Estime's did not disappoint either of us. After reading the reviews we HAD TO try the Amaretto French Toast and this was definitely the best decision. It was absolutely delicious. No syrup needed, it was perfect and the serving amount was perfect. Both the pork as well as turkey bacon were cooked crispy as we requested. The grits (with cheese) was also pretty good. I hope I have enough time to return while in NJ so that I can try the shrimp n grits! The atmosphere was cozy. The service (Amiya) was excellent. She was very sweet and accommodating. We will definitely return when in NJ.
This is definitely a hidden gem. First time there didn?t expect the food to be as good as it was. I ordered the NY strip and eggs and man?.. I felt the love of food in that dish. Steak was seasoned and good to perfection. It will be my new breakfast spot. I love supporting small business especially family oriented ones like this.
From the outside looking in I didn't expect the food to be as good as it was or for the live DJ set-up. The music was very upbeat and lively a great way to start your Saturday mornings. We also had great service, definitely worth the tip. (Please remember to tip)
This place has such a cute & homey vibe. Reminds me of my trips to NOLA. The food is amazing. The shrimp & grits and French toast are my faves. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Would recommend ??
Came here for the first time this afternoon for breakfast/brunch with my sister (who highly recommended this place!). It was a very cute and chill place with a relaxing vibe. I was immediately greeted upon arrival and we were seated immediately, no wait. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes which were amazing and super flavored; the lemon butter that comes on them is rich and delicious and yet the lemon didn?t overpower the butter, it was perfect!! My sister got the brioche French toast and she enjoyed it as well(it?s honestly the dish that had her coming back to Estime?s). You get this delicious jam on the side that goes super well with the griddle breakfast entrees, I found myself even taking the leftovers of it in my to go box. Portions are great; you?re really getting your money?s worth especially for ingredients that are super fresh. Our server was amazing! She made sure everything was okay and to our liking and she was super fast and efficient with everything. Matter of fact, the staff in general are super nice and very attentive to guest needs. You KNOW you had an excellent dining experience when the food and the service were both excellent. I will definitely be coming back.
