Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

We showed up at this place with like 20 ppl.They made room for us all and treated us well. Food was very good. If you also want somewhere to go after leaving the local clubs or lounges this is the spot due to them closing in the am.

“Best diner in NJ”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I can't comment on the entire menu but I know first hand that the French toast is pretty amazing. I was a bit upset to find they no longer served beef sausage during my last visit but that small gripe isn't enough to stop me from returning. Attentive, friendly staff and good food. The deserts look amazing though I've yet to try any.

“Above averge diner food for sure!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We got here at 9 am on a Sunday- no wait.

Ordered 2 coffees, a tea, hot cocoa to start. Hot cocoa had natural shaved cocoa on top of whip cream- yum! Good coffee, too. Bottomless cup always a bonus.

Food:
-2 sunny side eggs cooked perfectly w/hash browns which were yummy- not too oily or salty so those were also good and enjoyable. Multigrain toast was boring.
-French toast was "good" not amazing.
-Huevos rancheros was "good" more unique than most places.

Awesome prices with large portions.
Would definitely go back.
