Don't know what they do to those eggs, but the omlettes are fabulous!! I've never had anything else there, but no one has ever looked unhappy with their meals.

Food has gotten progressivley worse over the years. Bland tasting items that show up at differing degrees of temperature, based on how long they hang around waiting to be delivered. Staging, firing, and expediting out of the kitchen seems to always be a major issue. And by the way, toast means toasted bread, not warm bread that is the same color as when you put it in the toaster, and on which butter will not melt.

Since they had new owners about two years ago, this place has classed it up to be a little bit nicer than your average NJ diner. They have all the regular diner favorites, but also more creative twists like crepes and fancy mozzarella sticks. The salad bar is comprehensive and delicious. The prices are a smidge higher than a regular diner, but they make up for it in food. The atmosphere is diner-y.

We were really expecting a great experience but was disappointed. Very dirty and dingy. When we looked at the menu and saw the prices we left.
