  • Brunch in the Boken: Turning Point {Uptown}

    The beauty of Hoboken is that there’s always a chance to try something new. That’s why you’ll love walking up to 14th and Sinatra Drive to eat at Turning Point for brunch. Located at 1420 Sinatra Drive, the Turning Point is a popular spot among uptown locals. Just a heads up, there was already a wait at 9:30 on a Sunday.

    Something unique about Turning Point: there was an extensive tea menu.

    The White Orchid tea is very soothing. Also, the rock of sugar is adorable. Definitely a repeat item.

    If you’re with a big group, sample a lot of dishes. Preface your meal with some roasted red pepper dip (usually it’s with pita bread, but they were all out — so we got tortilla chips).

    Here were a few of our entrees:

    Turning Point

    The Big Easy Benny: (a seasonal special) Warm cornbread topped with sliced avocado, seasoned onions, suntan peppers, and chorizo sausage…then topped with two poached eggs with a Cajun Hollandaise Sauce. YUM!

    Fall Fusion Turkey Melt: (a seasonal special) Sourdough bread filled with slices of roasted turkey breast, Monterey jack cheese, dried cranberries, smoked bacon. Served with a side of brown sugar rum sauce.

    The Basic Skillet: Cheese, potatoes, eggs…enough said.

     Overall, everyone loved their dishes. Anything with eggs or home fries was a win. The prices were good, and there were a variety of healthy options (even though most of us were feeling greasy hangover food)…

    The service was decent, but if you are looking for a place that is a Sunday funday atmosphere, this is not the place to go since no alcohol is served. (not that that is a bad thing, but just had to mention). In general the crowd was mixed, but it was mostly families with children.

    Also, the view isn’t half bad:
