As you can see, lately, I’ve been to a lot of diners. Yes, many people think “I only eat at diners”, but the truth is I like most places. Anyway, I’ve been averaging more than usual lately with exploring the state. Recently, I found myself in Middletown before exploring Hartshorne Park. I’ve wanted to try the New Monmouth Diner for a while, and it seemed like a good day for it.
The New Monmouth Diner has everything you expect and more in a diner. The outside is a large, metallic and shiny exterior. The inside is massive with plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. I enjoyed the several old cars displayed proudly outside. The only diner I’ve been so far with the same idea is the Phily Diner in Runnemede.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh. There was nothing unique or exciting about it, but it wasn’t bad either. I have no complaints.
The New Monmouth Diner has plenty of options to please everyone. They have everything from breakfast all day, to plenty of lunch specials, and even dinner. It was around lunchtime but I was craving breakfast food. I ordered their lumberjack special which came with pancakes, eggs, sausage, and hashbrowns. To be fair, I feel as though it’s difficult to mess up breakfast but everything I got was great. The pancakes were a nice size, and nothing was overly greasy.
The food came out extremely quickly. I was in and out of the entire restaurant within 30 minutes, and the diner had plenty of other customers. The waitress was friendly and kept our beverages refilled.
For my meal and coffee, the cost was $11.
I really enjoyed the New Monmouth Diner. I was pleasantly surprised with everything, and it’s one of my favorite diners I’ve been too recently.
