Savor the taste of the Caribbean at the Jersey Shore at the Cruz Bay Café, located at the new Taylor Pavilion on the Belmar boardwalk.ABOUT US Located at the Taylor Pavilion on the Belmar boardwalk, the Cruz Bay Café is the first and only eatery on the boardwalk to offer a menu with an island-inspired twist — an idea that originated with Rick Bott, CEO of Merri-Makers Caterers, as he wanted to bring the Caribbean feel to Belmar. Bott named the café after Cruz Bay, a quaint, picturesque town on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he and his wife, Cindy, were married 28 years ago. Bott operates Merri-Makers — New Jersey’s premier catering company, known for its commitment to creating outstanding culinary experiences. At Cruz Bay Café, we pride ourselves on that same dedication to high-quality food, served up by friendly staff from an ocean-view kitchen. From the classic South Jersey cheesesteak sandwich to beer-battered fish tacos and grilled chicken Caesar wraps, there’s a touch of savor and spice that makes our Caribbean cuisine so distinctive.
