The Jersey Diner in New Jersey?
A few weeks ago, Cyd of New Jersey Isn’t Boring, and I met at the Jersey diner in Cinnaminson, NJ. Amazingly enough, this diner isn’t far from me yet I hadn’t been before. When she first told me about it, I was shocked it was one I haven’t been too.
The diner itself is picture perfect NJ diner. It is after all called, the Jersey Diner! The outside is a shiny metallic building, and inside is filled with booths, tables, and a long bar. It’s everything you picture from a diner.
I’ve been extremely lucky with waiters and waitresses lately, and this was no exception. Our waitress was extremely friendly, and I have no complaints. She was one of the kindest and friendliness servers I’ve had to date.
The coffee was excellent, and I have no complaints. The waitress added a lot of whipped cream, possibly more than actual coffee. Let’s be honest; we all know that was okay by me.
The Jersey diner has a lot of unusual foods and a lot of Mexican food. I haven’t seen a lot of diners with that. I decided to order a gyro quesadilla. The quesadilla came with gyro, feta cheese, onions and French fries. The quesadilla itself was good but messy.
It was filled with feta cheese and chicken that seemed to spill everywhere.
The French fries were nice and soft. Personally, I like soft, large fries versus small crispy ones. These fit the bill. It also came with soup, and I ordered the beef barley. It was good but nothing out of the ordinary.
We had been sitting right next to the dessert case so it was hard not to stare. I ultimately decided to get a “puff pastry” which is something I’ve never had before. It was like a giant pastry filled with frosting and whipped cream so for me it was perfect. This was one of my favorite “noncake” desserts to date.
For my quesadilla, coffee, and pastry the cost was $14. The pastry was only $2.99, I could not believe it.
The diner was good and a very stereotypical diner. The puff pastry was one of the best desserts I’ve had, and I will be back.
