Legacy Diner

On Sunday I met Liz at the Legacy diner in Audubon.  I had driven by the diner a couple of weeks ago and thought it looked really nice.  As with most diners I judge them by the outside.  The first time I drove by the Legacy Diner I knew I would be back soon.

Liz and I

Atmosphere: A
The atmosphere outdoors is adorable.  It’s very clean and fresh.  It’s the reason I spotted and added it to my to do list to begin with.  The inside of the Legacy Diner was clean.  It was divided into two sections.  It wasn’t anything too crazy but it was cute.  It’s in the medium sized diners I have been too.  It’s a nice diner, very clean and simple.

Coffee: A
I have to give the waitress extreme credit on this one.  She filled my cup 4 times during the two hours we were there.  She also added whipped cream each.  Honestly it was the best diner coffee I have had.  I have said that a few times but looking at this picture alone you can tell how delicious it was.

Food: A
After staring at the menu for a solid 10 minutes, we both decided to go with their special house Peach salad.  I almost went with the Greek salad like I do most of the time but the house peach was their specialty so I went with it.  It contained chicken, spinach, cranberries, walnuts, peaches and goat cheese.  The amount of goat cheese was overwhelming but goat cheese is my favorite so I have no complaints.

Long story short, this was one of my favorite diner salads.  I have absolutely no complaints.  Obviously I have no complaints since I decided to have a photoshoot with a salad.  I’m so blogger! 

Cost: $
The salad and coffee cost 14 dollars.  For the quality, quantity and service it’s one of the best values I’ve come across.

Would I come back/overall impression:
Honestly I have no complaints or problems with the Legacy Diner in Audubon.  I will be back several times and I wish I had discovered this hidden NJ sooner.  Both Elizabeth and I agree, It’s in the top five favorite diners in NJ.  I got a glimpse of their French toast and that’s what I will be trying next.

Questions for you:

Do you judge a restaurant by the outside?

Do you like to try “restaurant specialties”?

  1. We have a diner here called Early Bird Diner, and when they have a special that sounds good, I always try it because with specials, you never know when they will be back. Of course, I have my go-to items for when I don’t like the specials, too. I haven’t thought of peaches on a salad but I bet that would be really good… and goat cheese is my favorite too!
