Talk of the Towne Diner (Carneys Point)
After the Adrenaline 5k, I headed down to Virginia. I knew I needed to get food for the drive and took it as the perfect chance to further my dinering.
I found a diner in Carneys Point, Salem County, the “Talk of the Towne Diner.” When I stopped around lunchtime on a Saturday, it wasn’t too crowded, and I was quickly seated. Since I had just raced, I was hungry.
Talk of the Towne Diner Atmosphere: B
The Talk of the Towne looks like many South Jersey Diners with a cobblestone exterior and multiple rooms. Inside there are plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar.
There was also a full salad bar as well as a “hot foods breakfast bar,” which looked like it might be for a catering event or party.
Talk of the Towne Diner Coffee: A
The Talk of the Towne Diner served the local Lacas coffee, which is one of my favorite coffees. The waitress brought plenty of refills, and I had no complaints. It was one of the better coffees I have had in a while.
Talke of the Towne Diner Food: A
The Talke of the Town menu has everything a diner usually has. There are plenty of breakfast options, as well as a full salad bar, lunch, and dinner options. There aren’t too many unique options on the Talk of the Town Diner menu, but there isn’t anything it’s missing either.
At the Talk of the Towne Diner, I opted for one of their skillets which came with eggs, potatoes, sausage, and vegetables. When the skillet came out, it was sizzling and hot; it reminded me of something I would get a Mexican restaurant.
I also decided to get a cinnamon bun which was great.
The Talk of the Towne Diner was one of the most surprising diners, food-wise. It was much better than I anticipated and I was delighted.
The waitress at the Talk of the Towne Diner was extremely friendly, and the food came out within 15 minutes. To be honest, I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience.
Talk of the Towne Diner Cost:
For more meal, cinnamon bun, and coffee, the cost was $20.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back to the Talk of the Towne Diner:
