Surprisingly upscale food in a traditional Jersey diner setting, Prices are moderate and the service is excellent. The bread was a special treat. Be sure to check out the baked goods at the front counter on your way out!

It has been awhile since the mgmt decided to change up the menu. This is unfortunate and we no longer go as often as we have in the past. Bring back the diner classics!

I have eaten here many, many times since moving to New Jersey nine years ago and am never disappointed. The service is always exceptional and the food is fresh. My favorites on the menu are the Monte Bianco omelette, the Mediterranean Salad, and the Turkey BLT. The fresh loaf of bread they put on the table (in its own brown bag so you can take the remainder home) is a really nice touch. Great coffee, and cocktails if you're so inclined. There's live music in the lounge on weekends. Will keep going back as long as I live in the area.

Tried it. Mistake. Big mistake. I am not sure what this "diner" is actually trying to be. Hostess: inept. Seating: the booths do not have a privacy partition between them so you hear everyone's conversations and watch them eat. That could be considered fluff, but the real problem: they are trying too hard to be some sort of "upscale" diner. Food ordered is way too “artistic” and poorly made on top of that. And it is way too pricey! I’m a diner person and this is a no-go.

Had a craving for a classic "Reuben" sandwich and came to the right place. It was a fantastic one and I can't believe I ate the whole thing! Before the sandwich I had a marvellous bowl of "Matzo Ball Soup". It was the best I've had since my mother used to make it! Good place for a lunch!
