“Hit or miss diner, tries hard to have unique meals though”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

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.

“Saw the menu and left”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

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.

“Good not great”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

Super nice staff and fresh food and even WIFI but never scales the heights to greatness. They have a good salad and soup bar that is worth it alone.
