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 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.
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.
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.
The Talke of the Town 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 at the Talk of the Town Diner, but there also isn’t anything it’s missing either.
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 actually 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 was definitely one of the most surprising diners, food wise. It was much better than I anticipated and I was very pleased.
The waitress was extremely friendly, and the food came out within 15 minutes. To be honest, I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience.
For more meal, cinnamon bun, and coffee, the cost was $20.
Overall thoughts/would I come back:
I liked the Talk of the Towne Diner and would go back again. It’s a great stop if you are near the Delaware Memorial Bridge and need a quick bite to eat or break from the roads.
