New Berlin Diner

New Berlin Diner (Berlin, NJ)

I was back from Virginia and found ourselves about an hour south of our house.  We could have held off and just ate at home, but we were in a new area of NJ so we thought trying a new diner would be fun.  I put “diner” into the foursquare app, and The New Berlin Diner popped up a mile away.  Perfect.

So we found ourselves at the New Berlin Diner.

New Berlin Diner Atmosphere: A

The outside of the New Berlin Diner is an old cable car-style diner could be bigger than the 15 car parking lot.

Inside: Cable car diners are my favorite.  They feel more personal and give you that diner vibe.  It’s like a throwback to the 1950s.  I’m not sure what the Berlin Diner was like (Or even if it existed) but they did an excellent job with the “New Berlin Diner.”  It feels the most like a diner versus any diner we have been too.

New Berlin Diner Coffee: B

The coffee at the New Berlin Diner was good, not great and not bad.  It was average.  The waitress brought plenty of refills, and I got more than one refill (something that isn’t common in NJ).

New Berlin Diner Food: B

I was pleasantly surprised by the menu of the New Berlin Diner.  The menu could have been more massive than the diner itself.  I don’t know if a restaurant counts as a diner if the menu isn’t big.  I expected a more greasy style diner menu (to go with the atmosphere), but they have everything from seafood to salad to breakfast to sandwiches.

I ordered the Greek salad with chicken and a side of over-easy eggs with toast.

New Berlin Diner Salad

The Greek Salad at The New Berlin Diner came with tomatoes, eggs, feta, anchovies, lettuce, and tomato.  It was a medium-sized salad, and I liked the dressing.  This might have been one of my favorite Greek salad dressings so far.

The eggs were good.  It’s hard to have bad eggs, and I enjoyed them.   They didn’t have any pita bread, but the toast was an okay alternative.

New Berlin Diner Dessert: A

I got a milkshake which I promptly forgot to take a photo of…some food I am. The milkshake had plenty of whipped cream and cherry, which are huge bonus points for me.

New Berlin Diner Price: $

For two meals, a side of eggs, coffee, and a milkshake it was 40 dollars.

Would I come back to the New Berlin Diner?

I was pleasantly surprised by the New Berlin Diner.  If I find myself in Berlin again (which I probably will since I don’t work far from there), I would go back.

Have you ever been in an only cable car-style diner?

What is your favorite way to eat eggs? 


  1. I’ve never heard of a cable car style diner? We have a few here that are Chrome, hehe. Sounds like this was a great meal though!

  2. I went to a diner while I was in Lake Placid and thought of you! Although I didn’t tweet, so did I really eat there? … 😉
