“So Many Choices”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

It is unbelievable how many kinds of pancakes this place serves - in addition to all of the other choices on the menu. You could easily be overwhelmed if you do not like having many choices!

I had the banana-walnut pancakes and they were delicious. There was so much food that I also had them for breakfast for the next 2 days - yum! Go early as the line gets long.

“TONS of food”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Loved this place. 45 minute wait on a Sunday which we expected. Menu is giant. Chocolate peanutbutter pancakes were fabulous!

“Tiny Parking Lot Big Flavors”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Parking can be a chore but it is worth it. All the food is made fresh and the pancakes are amongst the best I have ever eaten. If your in the area do yourself a favor and visit the Brownstone. If you live in Jersey City you should already know what I am talking about.

“Always just right”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Whether it's egg and cheese on a muffin, or hamburger or panini or one of the specials for dinner, it's almost always "just right." Attentive service with smile. Easy parking (important in Jersey City). Only disappointment was thin and too greasy Eggplant on the eggplant parm sandwich. This continue to be our go-to place, late night or any time.

“Fantastic Food, Exceptional Atmosphere!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

It was late - like 10PM worked all day late. We were looking for dinner and figured a "Diner" would be open. We found this place on the GPS and decided to give it a try.

Inside and out looked brand new. This was not a hole-in-the-wall diner... not that there is anything wrong with those, but this was... for a lack of a better word - fancy.

The food was fantastic. They have a wide range of breakfast foods, as well as standard lunch and dinner options - all served anytime.

So, if you are in the area, it is late, and you are hungry for some great food, check this place out.
