In a nutshell…

We were always summer people but in 2006 our family decided to make Long Beach Island our permanent home. Waking up and going to sleep to the sounds of the waves was what we wanted. A few years were spent on Dock Road in Beach Haven until an opportunity was presented in 2008 to run the "little deli in Holgate." We packed up our bags and surfboards, and other beach necessities and moved to the mile marker 0 (the beginning of the island as we say.)

And so it began... Many people ask... have you ran a deli before? A business? Anything? And the answer was always no. But, why not? Our first few summers were learning years. We added items, deleted items, painted, and re-painted until the little deli became a representation of the Bowker family and what we are all about.

6 years and 1 hurricane later, we are still standing (literally) and here to serve you quality food! At Bowker's we have a wide range from serving breakfast all day to the best cheesesteaks around to our recently added healthy and organic menu. We have all of your beach needs so that your day is only filled with good vibes!
