Landmark Diner (Edison)
Sadly, the Landmark Diner in Edison, NJ, has closed.
It’s funny; I swore I had been to the Landmark Diner before. It looked so familiar, but I had possibly just driven by a few times. Last month, I was lucky to meet Christine at the Landmark Diner. Before our meet up, we decided I had been there already; it was no big deal. Going to a diner twice is hardly stressful.
Landmark Diner Atmosphere: A
The Landmark Diner has a modern and clean exterior. While it’s not metallic or shiny, it’s a welcoming building. The inside is spacious with a full bar, plenty of booths, and tables. Thankfully, you don’t feel as if you’re sitting on top of anyone.
Landmark Diner Service: A
The waitress at the Landmark Diner was extremely friendly and refilled our coffee and beverages several times. Plus the food came out quickly, so I have no complaints about that.
Landmark Diner Coffee: A
The Landmark Diner has a specialized espresso machine, so each cup was brewed to perfection. The waitress also added plenty of whipped cream. I think there was more whipped cream than coffee. So each cup of coffee had more whipped cream and was made from an espresso machine. Works for me!
Landmark Diner Food: A
The Landmark Diner menu has everything you could hope in a diner. Some of the menu reminds me of more a bistro which adds a unique touch. There are more sandwich, salad, and soup options. Originally I planned to order the Gyro wrap, but they had a “beet and goat cheese” salad on their specials, and I couldn’t resist. Beets are one of my favorite foods.
The beets, goat cheese, and arugula salad was delicious and fresh. It was one of the best salads I’ve had in a while, and there was plenty of salmon. It was not the traditional white lettuce style salad you might expect from a diner.
Landmark Diner Dessert: A
Since it was a special, I also received a dessert and chose bread pudding. I liked the bread pudding crust, and it was great. I have no complaints.
Landmark Diner Cost: $
For my coffee and lunch special, it was $16. For a beverage, soup, entree, and dessert, that’s one of the best values I’ve had.
Overall thoughts/Summary at the Landmark Diner (Edison):
