Every time we visit family, we dine at Minelli's at least once for breakfast and once for dinner. On more than one occasion we've had the ambiance ruined by a pugnacious waiter who invades our personal space. He's has a short sturdy build with an Irish pug. His unwanted comments are rude and irritating and come close to eliciting a... More

After watching the preferential seating by the host and hostess, and waiting unnecessarily long for a table, it was disappointing to get a cup of really bitter coffee with no cream on the table. I have fond memories of this diner from my youth, but that disappeared when i bit into the moldy tasting french toast. The bread was not... More

The menu is huge and the diner classics are all there. Can't go wrong with breakfast all day long and the burgers, salads, and club sandwiches are nice. The servers are great and my kids love the milkshakes.

This is a CLASSIC diner serving everything imaginable 24/7. Despite the crowds you never wait more than 10 minutes and the food arrives at your table almost before you finish ordering. Everything is consistently good.

We came here after church looking for a different diner to try, and it took me awhile to go through their expansive menu to find only 2 pages of breakfast meals, and there weren't many specialties, so i was surprised at that with how large the menu was. I had ordered the main line special, which was the only one... More

Had a wonderful breakfast here. The food was delicious, the service was very good. I'm having trouble describing why it was good but a decent diner is so hard to come by (outside of Jersey). There was a large menu, lots of specials, and whatever you had a taste for, they had. A proper diner.

If you're not from NJ, you might not know what a proper diner it. Minella's is one. We were there for a weekend breakfast. Busy but not crazy, and the eggs, home fries, pancakes, bacon, and coffee were all wonderful. And, if you visit at another time of day ( or have a taste for a mimosa...), there's a small... More

This spot has been a favorite to locals and travelers alike. There are plenty of tables and booths for seating, and the wait staff tries to politely serve you, and keep the service moving! There is a line out the door at times- but they do move to get you seated as soon as possible. This is a great place... More
