Worth the detour

Awesome food! The orange almond French toast is amazing! Hubby had an omelet and home fries and said he would order the same thing again. Very popular place so parking is limited but had room across the street. Didn't have to wait long for a table.

It is a fine diner:-) Food is good, especially wraps. Not a lot of ambiance to this place, but I guess it's ok for a diner...

I crave their French toast! Apples, walnuts and cinnamon cream cheese on top! What's not to love! I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed.

Have eaten here several times. Breakfast is the best, omelets great. Lunch is also good but can get expensive. It's a noisy diner which caters to locals. You probably will wait for breakfast on a Sunday but if you like omelets and good coffee it's worth it.

Arrived shortly after 1pm. Waited for twenty minutes to sit. Food was average but pricey. Waitress was horrible. Had to keep getting her attention to get more coffee. She was too busy talking with the rest of the crew at the counter area. Won't go back and I am a local.

there should be a committee for the State of nj that determines whether or not you can call your restaurant a diner, This place would not qualify, nor is it fine. Diners in nj have booths, serve breakfast all day,, and make decent burgers and fries, This restaurant is a small room , does not serve breakfast after 11 am,... More

Are you looking for great breakfast in northwest New Jersey? Then take a ride to the Fine Diner. Omelets along with their home fries are always done to perfection along with a staff that is always friendly. Walk in and fine a seat, someone will be with you very soon. Limited parking so try to arrive before 8 AM. After... More

My husband and I have breakfast here every Sunday, and its really the best breakfast in town! Must try the Mighty Fine French Toast, amazing!!! Jen and Mike are the sweetest, and their staff is like family. You'll love it. It does get very crowded on some days, but its worth the wait.

I consistently go here for Sunday breakfast as the food is beyond amazing. Omelletes are the best Ive ever had, pancakes are out of this world as well. Never disappointed, always in awe of how good the food is.
