Westmont Diner (Westmont, NJ)
On Wednesday evening, I met Liz at the Westmont Diner. We had been talking about hanging out for the last two months, but work has gotten the best of us. Thank goodness our schedules finally collided because I don’t think I could wait any longer (this is a true fact). Liz and I met last June at the 10k we both ran.
We met at the Westmont Diner around 6:30. It wasn’t busy, but the parking lot was small.
Westmont Diner Atmosphere: B
The Westmont diner is located on Haddon Ave in a shopping center. The inside of the Westmont Diner has plenty of space and is cute. It’s small and looks like it would get busy quickly. It was nicely decorated for the Holidays.
The waitress of the Westmont Diner was one of the nicest I’ve ever had (at a diner). She made you feel at home. It was clear this was not the GloboDiner that you picture NJ to have. I cannot sing the politeness of the waitress enough songs. She was so lovely and welcoming.
Westmont Diner Coffee: A
As you can see from the tower of whipped cream, the coffee did not disappoint. Both Liz and I decided this was in the top five best diner coffee we have had.
Westmont Diner Food: B
As far as diners go, the Westmont diner had a smaller menu. There were lots of options (compared to other restaurants) but not too many. The Westmont diner did have more specials than most diners. You can certainly get a good deal on food there!
I ordered the Greek Salad with chicken as well as pita bread (Sound familiar right?). This particular Greek salad was pretty small. It came with the typical Greek salad fare: lettuce, onions (maybe 2?) olives, tomatoes and feta. I would have liked to see more salad but other than that it was pretty good…just small. Besides the portion size, the salad was pretty good.
Westmont Diner Cost:$
At the Westmont Diner, it was 15 dollars for the coffee (with chicken and pita) and coffee.
Overall Experience: B
Would I come back?
I think the waitress alone would make me want to go back to the Westmont Diner. She was so polite and friendly. My only complaint is not enough food (per standard diner), but the food was excellent. I will be back. Since I live close by, I will be back to see her.
Question of the day:
Liz and I got into a heated discussion: what are the best type of olives?
I agree wuth you on location – i always have reservations about strip mall places!
And I like kakamata olives. I could eat them in a bowl.
I was eating breakfast at a meeting this week, and they had a GIGANTIC bowl of whipped cream on the buffet, and it made me think of you. I pictured just how much of it you would commandeer for your coffee.
I love that you met at a 10k! The Greek salad looks great. I LOVE kalamata olives!
Hey Hollie, do you ever Yelp about the diners you’ve been at? You’re so thorough I think they would benefit from your analysis.
I have but I honestly don’t have a need for more social media outlets. Thanks for the suggestion though 🙂
I went to an upscale Spanish diner this week for dinner. I may have enjoyed a margarita or two. Diners really are the best!
I just believe olives belong on basically every salad a diner offers – not just the Greek! We need to campaign for this somehow…
I love when the waitress/waiter is nice. It automatically makes the whole experience better! As for olives… you’re going to hate me… I don’t like them!
