What's So Special?
Check out the "Specials" page for
what's in the deli case today!
Here at the Dark Star Café we've built our reputation on being the only
place to go where everything is homemade.
We're also known for our bodacious sandwiches!
All of our regular sandwiches are made with
at least eight ounces of meat & cheese. That's more than double
what some other sandwich shops put on their bread!
Check out the photo gallery for some pictures of our food.
We are now offering half subs which satisfy the cravings of a lighter
appetite. We roast all of our own deli meats, using only the finest
prime meats and the best poultry. Our tuna loin is sushi grade and all of our
seafood is as fresh as can be. We offer all kinds of catering from
drop off trays to full blown events, tailoring each one to your specifications.
Our pizza is made from the finest all trump flour, using the best whole milk
mozzarella, (some even have our homemade mozzarella), and our sauce is
made here with only imported Italian whole tomatoes!
When we put a topping on your pizza we use a whole pound
of toppings on a large pie! No one else can say that!
Our slices are cut from a twenty-two inch pie, the biggest on the Island!

We just celebrated our two year anniversary, this year on June 29th, in our
Ship Bottom location, on beautiful Long Beach Island, NJ.
We are Proud to Announce that for the last two years,
we've been nominated as the
"Best Sandwich Shop on the Jersey Shore"
by Fox 29 Philadelphia, and the results are in!
We came in fifth place on the whole Jersey shore,
from Sandy Hook, Monmouth County to Cape May!!
The best part is we won in Ocean County, both years!
We got the most votes in Ocean County, not having been open a year yet!
This year we got the most votes in Ocean County again!
A real big "Thank You" to all who voted for us!
We have also been voted "One of the Best"  Delicatessens &
"One of the Best" Take~Out Restaurants in the
2007 Islander Readers' Choice Awards.
This is an especially significant accomplishment for us,
as we had been open only three months at the time of the voting!
We would like to thank all of our guests who voted for us,
& hope to continue to satisfy everyone.

We've put in a new kitchen and renovated our dining room
to accommodate our guests.
The Dark Star Café features chef~prepared gourmet pizza,  
bodacious sandwiches,  innovative salads, homemade deli meats,
