This place is located right on the water. There is no seating inside, only picket tables and counter space outside. I was only at Junior's Donuts & Dogs once, but I was not impressed. I only had a doughnut and coffee, which were okay, but nothing special. I plan on going back when they open for the season to try... More

I've been a very big Juniors ran for years. There are some snafus since the new ownership (as others have written). But for the price Juniors is easily still one of my favorite places to eat anywhere. The Jersey Shore offers a wide variety of great entertainment and food options, but in general it is very concrete and urban. Busy... More

You haven't lived until you had a Juniors donut. They just changed owners and didn't skip a beat, the donuts are absolutely delish!! We don't miss a weekend without a dozen Juniors donuts. I'm pretty sure it's the only reason my kids come down at all. You will crave these all year long, do not skip this visit. ;)

Just the name of the of the place makes you smile and wonder what you can get. About dozen different types of donuts, some offered with Bassett hard ice cream or soft ice cream in the middle of the donut, Italian Water Ice or Bassett ice cream is offered as well. Ask for a gelato and you'll get one. dogs... More

I have been a Junior's fan since they first opened. They were recently taken over by new owners and my family was so excited to have another summer at their favorite breakfast spot. My son went on Friday morning of 4th of July weekend only to find the donut shelves empty. He was very disappointed. Today we went back and... More

With a wide variety of donuts for everyone, Juniors has the fun and location that is very popular among the locals and visitors alike. Situated on the bayside of Longport, it's a great stop for coffee and a donut to satisfy your craving for a morning treat!

A Margate staple is now gone. Not sure if anything will be taking it's place or someone bought it and it will be the same thing, but the family who built it, grew up and the parents retired. Thanks for the memories.

Although I am only giving an average rating for food, the atmosphere is above excellent. My family and I went for dinner and were lucky enough to score a table on their private dock that sits in on the bay. There are only 3 tables and it was very cozy. The views during sunset were AMAZING. There are also a... More
