I have been to the Hollywood diner before. When my family and I were driving up to college over eight years ago, we stopped there! I honestly don’t remember many details, but I knew I had been there! This time period was far before I knew how awesome diners were. We decided to stop at the Hollywood Diner because who doesn’t like a trip to Hollywood?
The diner is an old train car. As I’ve said many times before, it’s hard to beat the diner atmosphere of a train car. The restaurant was clean, and the car was adorable. We arrived on Saturday around 11:15. It was crowded but nothing unreasonable. We received a table quickly.
The Hollywood diner’s waitress one of the best I’ve ever had. She was polite, friendly and refilled our coffee. Despite being busy, she made sure we were happy. Honestly, she was one of the best waitresses I’ve had at any restaurant!
The coffee was a local brew to me in New Jersey. Lacas Coffee has become well known in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. In fact, they sponsored the Scott Coffee 8k in Moorestown last May. The coffee was delicious, and the whipped cream was perfect.
They also gave plenty of creams. Never enough I guess?
The Hollywood Diner has a smaller menu. While it doesn’t have ten pages of food, there are plenty of options. I ordered one of their specials that included: pancakes, eggs, bacon sausage and unpictured rye toast. Everything was home cooked and tasted great. I like soft fatty bacon versus crispy. The pancakes were light and fluffy as well. It satisfied my diner craving.
For both Tim and I’s meal and coffee, the cost was $20. It was an inexpensive stop, and I have no complaints. Honestly 20 dollars is usually the cost of a meal for just me.
Would I come back?
The Hollywood Diner was a smart stop. I am glad we stopped, and we will be back. It’s a cute stop for anyone nearby or traveling.
Not many diners get all “A”s.
