Last weekend, I met Danielle and Amelia at the Pop Shop in Collingswood, NJ. I needed an excuse to see them and the Pop Shop has been on my top to do diner list. I sat down and was immediately not disappointed. The loud music, the openness, everything about this screamed adorable diner and why have I not been here? Before even begining to order or eat, the Pop Shop began at the top of my list.
Although the Pop Shop is a little bit loud for my liking, I love everything about it. It’s fun, it’s bright and it’s open. I love the general and overall style.
The woman was generous and brought a lovely cup of coffee with whipped cream. The whipped cream was so stacked it nearly toppled over. I can never have complaints about that. The coffee itself was amazing as well. Overall this ranks in the top 5 diner coffees. Well done Pop Shop, well done.
The Pop shop has a smaller menu than most “regular” diners in NJ. It has a great selection of salads, sandwiches and their most well known grilled cheeses. I ordered the smoked salmon salad. Despite having a much smaller menu, it’s clear that Pop Shop does each dish extremely well. There isn’t a need for an overall large menu because everything is good.
The smoked salmon salad was one of the best salads I’ve had in a while. It came with smoked salmon, goat cheese, caramelized onions and mixed greens. I wish it had come with bread but other then that I have no complaints. The salad was perfection.
You truly cannot go to the Pop Shop without getting dessert. They are one of the most well known dessert places in South Jersey. The Pop Shop specializes in ice cream and sundaes. I had to get a Sundae. (It was after all, Sundae Sunday). I ended up getting a vanilla sundae with whipped cream, brownie and cookie crumbles. It was excellent. Unfortunately I was so full from eating all day I had to bring it partially back home. I enjoyed the second half the day after just as much as the first.
It was 20 dollars for a delicious salad, coffee and huge sundae. Honestly this is probably one of the best prices and values of any diner I’ve been too. The food was great and filling and it was under 20 dollars including tip. (19.50).
Would I come back?
Yes and I hope I can go back very soon. Finally to clear the air, the Pop Shop did not pay me to come visit or review…I’m just now obsessed.
PS: It’s Danielle’s Birthday today so you should go wish her a Happy Birthday.
