Fun ambience, good sandwiches and inventive breakfast dishes in a contemporary coffee house setting. Best Huevos Rancharos around, by far.

Red Eye offers a great breakfast selection and food is prepared quickly and tastes very fresh. Seating is limited so yo may need to wait a while - especially on the weekends. I've only been just after morning rush on workday so it worked out fine. Go for the Dirty Chai - their signature drink!

Go early… This place was mobbed by 1130 on Saturday morning. Great dirty chai, interesting menu, nice presentation and reasonable prices.

My wife and I tried the Red Eye Cafe for breakfast and we were glad we did. The Red Eye Cafe is a cozy space that reminds me of a cafe you would find in Greenwich Village or on a quiet street in Europe. My wife selected the pancakes and I an omelet. The pancakes were light and fluffy. The omelet was made to order with you choosing any two ingredients from a long list. It was done perfectly and came with home fries and multi grain bread. We ordered a side of bacon and it was cooked perfectly. The menu had many options from salads, sandwiches, french toast, oatmeal, pastries and specials. We loved the Red Eye Cafe and will definitely return.

This cute, little joint is splendid, and i use that word rarely... (The biggest challenge, is getting a parking space on Walnut street in Montclair- FYI- some spots are 2 hour and some are 1 hour.) Kombucha (locally made) and cider-chai on the menu! 'You had me at, SCOBY!' When a breakfast place totally nails home fries, you know that there is a lot of love in the food. Go- Eat- Smile. I had a shitake omelet, but I was also coveting someone's ranchero-type dish. They also have a coffee and pastry bar in the front of this cafe for the Starbuckers in the area. YUMM! Lunch and dinner also available.
