What else do you need from a Diner. Great food, decent prices, and CLEAN! It's actually quite cute inside!

I've eaten at the Chit Chat Diner a number of times and have always had a great experience. For breakfast or brunch I've ordered poached eggs, and they always come out just right. The menu is extensive. The salads and sandwiches or wraps are always fresh and tasty. Staff is friendly and helpful.

I ordered food from this place several times. Every time I've gotten sick to my stomach. There food is gross. I get pains and end up having loose stools cause of the food. I've ordered the hamburger deluxe and BLT and my other friends have ordered food and also have gotten sick. Stay away. Don't go unless you want diarrhea... More

The Chit Chat puts all other diners to shame with the quality, variety, and imagination of the menu, the consistently excellent prepared food, the courteous and quick service, reasonable prices, and a delightful setting. We've eaten at the Chit Chat at all hours of the day, different days of the week and weekend; NEVER had a bad meal, a mediocre... More

Went there with my family for an early birthday celebration for my Mom. We decided to have "dinner" rather than standard diner fare, which turned out to be a good decision. I started with a cup of really good black bean soup with chorizo, served piping hot. Then I had coconut crusted grouper (shocking that they have that in Jersey)... More
