This place is pack with all kind of people trying to eat and use the bathroom to keep going on their trip. If you have to stretch, eat something quick and gas up this is the place. I felt very safe plus they have a big variety of places to eat from.

Clean, large, well laid out rest spot with many options to choose from. Great bathrooms. All you can want in a rest area. The Starbucks needs some help. The line was crazy long and the staff didn't make 2 of our 3 drinks correctly... having to remake... a frapachino and a latte. My frapachino was very good.

Stopped here to and from our trip through the New England states. Both times we selected the Brioche Doree for our lunch. The sandwiches consisted of a baguette with maybe one or two slices of meat and one slice of cheese...toasted or not. The price was 8.99 ore more. Cookies were 4-5 dollars for a dried out cookie. Will opt... More

If you want a Starbucks while traveling on 95 near pa/de line, you may want to drive a little farther. Although this place has been open less a year one of the staff was a lot less than nice. When asked for more cream, ice water big..... ATTITUDE. Maybe you will get lucky and it will be her day off.... More

If your heading up or down I95 be sure to wait till you get to the Delaware House to take a break. Just drive by all the stops on the Jersey turn pike. This rest stop is new, fresh with an airy and open feeling. Several food choices of coffee, burgers, pizza, mexican and sandwiches. Best place to stop on... More
