Really liked this place. OK, it's not fancy but a wide choice of menu from snacks and burgers to steaks and pasta and the food is excellent with large portions. Friendly staff and efficient service. Clean and tidy and open 24 hours - impressive.

Our favorite breakfast place in Jersey City. When we're in town, we eat at this place rather than the expensive hotel breakfast buffet.
