It’s July and summer is in full swing along the beaches of South Jersey. One of these beloved shore towns is Sea Isle City, where family and friends flock every year to enjoy the beach, Promenade, shops, restaurants, bars, and entertainment. As you drive over the causeway into town, there is a lot that sits on the corner of JFK Boulevard and Landis Avenue that is considered the heart of Sea Isle City. Its ideal central location and close proximity to the beach and everything the town has to offer makes it a desirable place to be. New owners and management have taken over the property and created an atmosphere that makes it an absolute must see at the shore!
Now this epic area of Sea Isle features a revamped bar and eatery, an exciting new made-from-scratch bakery and a newly renovated hotel. These attractions provide tons of entertainment and the perfect way to spend a warm summer day or night.
The brand new Shorebreak Cafe features a wide variety of homemade baked goods, sweet and savory items, freshly brewed Lavazza coffee drinks, and house-made ice cream. All recipes are created by the extremely talented Pastry Chef, Dana Iannelli, who puts her heart and soul into all of her creations. Dana has an extensive background working in some of the best bakeries all over the country, including a New York Custom Cake Designer, who became her inspiration for her unique design. She even competed in Food Network’s Season 2 of Wedding Cake Championship. As a South Jersey native, Dana wants to bring smiles and fond memories of food for all those who visit the shore, and make their stay a little sweeter!
From bagels and egg sandwiches, cheese danishes and croissants, to cinnamon buns, brownies, and crumb cake, this place has everything you could be craving. Support this newly opened business whether you are looking for a baked good for yourself or the kids, or a mid-day cookie pick-me-up, Shorebreak Cafe has it all. Stop in for homemade ice cream in a variety of flavors, or try a featured item, the Shorebreak Bubble Waffle! The bubble waffle has not been seen in Sea Isle yet, and you get two flavors of your choice of ice cream, two toppings, and whipped cream with a cherry on top served, in the viral bubble waffle. Come get them while they are hot and enjoy the first bubble waffle brought to Sea Isle City!
Beach Bar at The Ludlam
Looking for a fun and laid-back place to bring friends or family to who are coming to town? Bring them to the iconic Beach Bar at The Ludlam. Previously known as the Old LaCosta, the Beach Bar has an upbeat atmosphere that will continue to entertain visitors and locals for years to come. A completely refurbished deck bar is ready to serve up delicious cocktails and if you love to get up and dance, there is plenty of room to enjoy live entertainment playing all summer long!
Enjoy the exciting new space, drink list, frozen drink bar, and food menu that includes appetizers, pizzas, and handheld sandwiches. The fun and joyful staff are happy to provide you with an excellent experience as you soak in that beach town atmosphere. You are on vacation, after all, so relax on our outdoor patio, soak in the summer breeze and watch live entertainment. The full lineup of all the great artists and acts can be found here.
A great way to ensure that you don’t miss out on all that Sea Isle has to offer is to book a stay at the newly renovated and perfectly located Ludlam Hotel.

Enjoy both Shorebreak Cafe and the Beach Bar as they are both on-site and walk only about a block to the beach!

Included in your stay is a free parking space, free wifi, and complimentary beach tags for all registered adults for the duration of your stay that give you access to any Sea Isle beach.
