So, we traveled 45 minutes in the opposite direction of our 'Jersey Shore weekend' just to try out this diner. So glad we did! I knew that I would love the decor, but after reading the reviews, I was a little worried about the food,...More

One of the best diners in NJ, with a 50's Art Deco decor. I always order the blueberry stuffed French toast, which is absolutely delicious. The menu is huge. I took my friends here and everyone loved their dish. Usually crowded, this is not your...More

I had come in for a convention and had this recommended to me. The decor reminded me of going to either Disney or Atlantic City....a bit cheesy or over the top but fun. The choices on the menu were nice and different. The service was...More

Don't let the exterior fool you. This in not your typical diner. Inside you have a bar and lounge to your right and a restaurant to your left. The decor reminds me of the Jetson's but the food is not diner food. The menu is...More

I felt I stepped off a ride at Disney's Tomorrowland and found a 60's space age dinner, without over the top kitsch. While the decor is clean and distinctive the food is was surprisingly good, at least for Breakfast. First, they do their own baking...More
