Its 12:15. We're due in court at 1:00 PM. All we had eaten so far today was the free breakfast in the motel, and we were hungry. Just before crossing the street to the courthouse, there was Nook and Cranny. Lets stop in.
Menus are on the table. As soon as we sit down the server asks about beverages. Hot coffee for me, and iced tea for my companions. We order ... tuna salad platter for me, and breakfast burritos for each of my companions.
Everything arrives quickly. Mine is great and just the right size. Tuna over a bed of greens with slices of tomato, peppers and cucumbers along the sides, and a balsamic dressing. Companions like theirs too. The server is very attentive and keeps our drinks full without even being asked.
Cell phone rings. Its our lawyer. We tell her we're at Nook and Cranny. She knows exactly where it is, and she joins us in minutes.
We were all able to have a good meal and get to the courthouse with time to spare. We'll be back.
Just one comment to the half of the prior reviewers that referred to the Nook and Cranny as a diner: Its not. Those of us from New Jersey, the diner state, know all too well what a diner is. We're in them all the time ... stainless steel and glass exterior, open 24 hours, surly waitresses, owner named Nick behind the cash register.
What Nook and Cranny IS is a very pleasant little luncheonette, with good food prepared and served by people who aim to please ... a type of place that is being squeezed out by personality-starved chain restaurants and is getting harder and harder to find. We hope this one lasts a long time.
