Pretty good but over rated.

I liked the breakfast, but I felt the hype was greater than the actual place. The grind the coffee beans fresh, which is a huge plus in my book. They were skimpy on the butter for the pancakes, but they were good anyways.

I have been coming to John and Elaines since I was a kid, and they have always had a delicious and satisfying breakfast. More recently, the service has been touch and go. Sometimes it is friendly and timely, other times I'll wait for something as simple as coffee or water for 10+ minutes when theres only very few other tables... More

Place has been here forever, and looks like it. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is typical, nothing out of the ordinary. Place could use a good cleaning.

It's a typical Jersey diner. There's not many in point pleasant and whenever we visit my husband and I get in a fight but I don't think that's because of the food. Slow service but food is good and coffee is strong.

My two sons, age 2 and 4, and I just walked out of this establishment. We were quietly seated in a small side booth in the main dining area, and we had a polite server who while taking our order commented about how sweet and well behaved my sons were. Rather than plopping iPads and iPhones in front of my... More

Great place for breakfast. The food is fresh n home made. Good place off the beaten path. Little pricey but really good quality. Never had dinner there but will give them a try if they invite us to their " tree house" even if it's to take it down.
