Seville Diner (East Brunswick)

Seville Diner East Brunswick

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went to the Seville Diner. I had heard from the grapevine that the Seville Diner was one of the best in the county. We made the quick trip up to try it out.

Seville Diner Atmosphere: C

The Seville Diner is a classic and old school diner. The outside is a metallic and shiny, and the building draws you in from the highway. If I were rating the outside, I would rate it an A.

The inside, however, is a different story. The tables are very uncomfortable, and you feel as if you are sitting on top of people. It’s cramped and uncomfortable. We initially sat in a booth that was the most uncomfortable seating I’ve sat in. Luckily the waitress was accommodating and moved us to something more comfortable.

Seville Diner Service: A

The waitress at the Seville Diner was very friendly, despite having a lot of tables. She was covering half the restaurant and still refilled our drinks when appropriate. We asked her for recommendations.

Seville Diner Coffee: A

I’ve been to a lot of diners recently that have brewed Lacas coffee. I enjoyed the coffee a lot. The whipped cream was excellent and the coffee was brewed well. I have no complaints.

Seville Diner Food: A

The Seville Diner has many different unique menu. The waitress gave many different recommendations. There is everything from an all you can eat salad bar to steak and seafood and, of course, breakfast options.

I ordered the peppers and sausage under the “diner classic menu”.  The classic came with soup or salad.  I chose the Matzah Ball soup.  I don’t have Matzah Ball soup a lot but I was craving it.  For those who are unfamiliar, Matzah Ball soup is just a big ball of dough in broth.

To be honest, I’ve never heard of the sausage and peppers at the diner. It came with sautéed peppers and sausage in a marinara sauce with rice. Honestly, it was good, and I’m glad I got it.   Seville Diner Sausage

Seville Diner Dessert: A

We wanted to split a couple of different desserts. I had my eye on the rainbow cake. After getting rainbow cake at the Stateline diner, I get it at every diner I go too. The frosting was a cream cheese frosting which is my absolute favorite. To me, the frosting of most cakes is always the best part.  I had most of the rainbow cake because I liked it the best.  Seville Diner rainbow cake

We also tried the Mouse Mousse cake. It was a thick and dense layer of chocolate cake with frosting in the shape of a mouse.  This cake was lighter and the chocolate was extremely rich.  The frosting was whipped and most of the inside was a mousse consistency versus cake.  It was good as well but my favorite was the rainbow cake.

Both pieces of dessert of the Seville Diner were good, and I am glad we tried both. They were dense pieces of cake.

Seville Diner Cost: $

At the Seville Diner, my entrée, coffee and both desserts it was $25.00. For the amount of food and how filling it was, it wasn’t bad.

Summary/Would I come back to the Seville Diner (East Brunswick):

The service at the Seville Diner was good, and I enjoyed the food. The seating is a little unusual, but that isn’t enough to deter me.
