My wife had the egg and cheese on onion rye - sounds simple - but Carver's makes everything exceptional. But, the pièce de résistancene was the cinnamon and peach french toast with fruit. Granted it was a little more like dessert for breakfast but it...More

Perhaps I was just at the tail end of breakfast or maybe seeing the cook with the filthy clothes just made my food taste worse...I had a simple order of home fries and roasted veggies. The home fries were so overcooked, dried and crumbled up,...More

We were visiting relatives who directed us to have a late breakfast/early lunch here. The portions are generous and tasty. There is not a lot of seating and clearly the place is popular, judging by the crowd. It's worth the wait, though. We'd go here...More

Home made breads of several varieties, daily specials and probably the best breakfast in and around Denville-Boonton Township-Mountain Lakes.

The food at Carver's, the old Doc's Kitchen, is quite good and it is always busy with patrons.. They serve only breakfast (all day) and lunch and their specialty pancakes and omelets are terrific. The restaurant would have received more stars but I cannot figure...More
