Recently I went up to Scotch Plains and met NJ Isn’t Boring at another diner. I’ve heard the Scotchwood Diner is good so when she suggested it, I agreed!
The outside of the Scotchwood Diner is exactly what you picture in a diner. It’s a giant metallic chrome building. The inside has plenty of booths, tables, a giant dessert case, and bar. If you’re looking for stereotypical diner then the Scotchwood Diner is ideal.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh each time. There was nothing special or extraordinary about the coffee but it was good.
The Scotchwood Diner has everything you would want in a diner. Breakfast is all day and there are plenty of lunch and dinner options too. It has at least a dozen pages of food. I’ve been eating out a lot lately so wanted a healthy salad.
I ordered a Greek salad with chicken which was presented beautifully. Usually when I go to a diner with Cyd and get a salad, they have an awesome presentation.
The waitress was extremely friendly and refilled our beverages often. She was one of the best waitresses I’ve had in a while.
Cyd’s meal came with dessert and as the waitress was explaining the options, I thought the bread pudding sounded great. With the exception of cake, bread pudding is my favorite dessert!
So much for my decision of eating healthy. The bread pudding was good, and there was less bread than pudding. Personally, I prefer more bread. It was good and I would order it again.
For my coffee, salad, and dessert the cost was $22 which was a bit pricer.
I liked the Scotchwood Diner and I would definitely go back. They have a lot of options I want to try.
Questions for you:
