As you can see, while not running, I’ve been to a heck of a lot more diners. The Continental Diner recently reopened. It used to be known as the Dolphin Diner, and I ate there several years ago.
When my mom and I arrived around 6 pm on a weekday, there was only one other party in the restaurant. There were never more than a few people during our entire experience.
The Continental Diner hasn’t changed much of the environment of the Dolphin Diner. They added a new highway sign but other than that the inside is very similar.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a half full dessert case. The desserts inside did look good. I saw a few that I wanted to try.
For an extremely undercrowded diner, the waitress didn’t come by often. I was surprised when it took a while to take our orders and bring drinks. She was nice, but overall the service was slow.
Without running, I’ve been making more of an effort to eat healthier. The menu at the Continental Diner is typical of most New Jersey diners. There is nothing that sticks out.
Even though they didn’t have a lot of desserts left, I noticed the chocolate oreo cake and wanted to go with that. The cake itself was great, it consisted of a large layer of frosting which was almost mousse-like and then a chocolate cake underneath. It was one of the better diner cakes I’ve had and I have no complaints. I would order it again…and again.
For my coffee, salad, cake and ice cream the cost was $22. It was a great price, and I left feeling full.
I actually like the new Continental Diner better than the Dolphin Diner. I think they could use more personalization for the name. I was disappointed they were out of whipped cream. I’ll be back.
Questions for you:
Have you ordered anything and a restaurant was out?
I find that happens more with farm to table restaurants…
Have you been to a restaurant before and after it was open under new management?
