Country Fried steak and fresh eggs really hit the spot after a night of skiing and partying. Really recommend this place if you want quality down home cooking.

Breakfast is good. Service ok. Small inside, sits off the main street and they have been here a long time. Locals seem to be the average. Personally I forget it's there. But, food was descent. Atmosphere country and extremely simple.

My wife and I stopped by The Mixing Bowl during a weekend stay in Vernon, NJ. The staff is friendly, the customers are mostly locals, the food is good, and the dining area is cozy. Stop by The Mixing Bowl and say hi if you want a quiet dining experience.

Very cute for Breakfast or brunch. The atmosphere is nice and inviting and service very good. That's a reason to keep coming back. Food is good to above average, but we have found a few diners in the area that are far better. Nice ambience, so we change it up for breakfast before skiing. Go early, or expect to wait... More

Great place to go for breakfast when you are in Vernon. The food is very fresh and the wait staff very pleasant. My blueberry pancakes were simply delicious! Just like the ones Mom use to make. The only drawback is that it is quite popular but small so expect at the very least a 20 minute wait.

I go to Vernon every summer, and this place never disappoints you. It is nothing fancy, but the staff is great, all dishes I've tasted are delicious and the price is great. Best deal in Vernon.
