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

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.

The only down side to this quaint place is that there isn't enough tables to accommodate the patrons during the peak serving hours. The staff are very friendly, greeting you by name. The portions sizes are plentiful and the flavorful foods leave your tastebuds partying long after you've finished your meal. I almost always order one of the specials, (rather... More

Everything about breakfast or lunch was excellent...food, service and price. Parking can be an issue as it is very popular. Park around the corner for a short walk to the Diner.
