Whenever we are in the area of Pier Village, we don’t miss a chance to have lunch at The Turning Point. The food is always so fresh and the portions are substantial. The service is superb as well. This time my husband enjoyed the Blueberry...pancakes which came with warm maple syrup and marmalades of his choice, and I had the walnut cranberry chicken salad on a multi grain bread. Mine also came with a lovely salad with a lemon vinaigrette dressing. They also gave us our own pot of coffee so we didn’t have to bother them for refills. They got it rightMore

Located in the village shopping plaza, Turning Point is a great place to have breakfast. They have indoor/outdoor seating and you should plan to get therenealry asbut does get very busy. The menu has great chouces if brewed coffees, the Costa Rican blend was a...great choice. It was smooth with a silky taste. The Western Omelet, sausage and smoke wood bacon all great choices. They also have a selection of fresh pressed juices.More

Enjoyed breakfast by the sea in a cozy, sunny corner spot in the restaurant. Menu has a nice variety of items. Pancake syrup is served warm...yum. Staff very friendly and attentive. Nice area right across from the ocean.

Decent place for breakfast. Younger staff needs a little more training, but they tried their best during COVID.

Be prepared to wait for a table, especially during these social distancing times. But it is worth it! Our waiter was terrific, quick, polite and very helpful. We had waffles and pancakes. They were both delicious on their, but with the toppings, just scrumptious.

My wife and I had lunch here in August 2020. I had a chicken wrap and a smoothie. The service was good. Staff wore masks and the tables were six feet apart in an outdoor dining area.

Arrived at breakfast as the place opened and the host would barely seat anyone. She took names and numbers of everyone in line first, then sat one party at a time and between each seating she’d go back to host podium stand and sit down...for 3-4 min taking breaks, sit there and just talk to the crowd. Then after she’d seat the next party. This cycle kept getting repeated. We were 5th in line. After 15 min later we left.More

During PEAK SEASON, we feel that street-parking in the entire area is quite challenging and "Off-street" Parking is relatively "expensive". That is why we lean toward going there ON by RR from NYC Penn Station via NJ... More
