Rio Grande Diner

Rio Grande Diner

After running the Cape May 10k, I was hungry and ready to eat.  I arrived around 10 am on a Saturday.  A quick google search led me to the Rio Grande Diner.

Atmosphere: B
The Rio Grande Diner looks like a typical NJ diner.  There are several booths, tables, and a full-length bar. The hostess sat me next to the door which I wasn’t ecstatic about.  The Rio Grande Diner could use interior updates. My booth had part of the booth duct taped up and apparently needed a bit of a makeover.

Coffee: A
The coffee was the locally brewed Lacas coffee, and I have no complaints. Our waiter refilled it often, and it tasted great.

Food: A
I had no idea what I wanted. I had woken up early (4:30 am) so by 10 am I was starving for lunch.  The Rio Grande Diner has everything you would want in a diner.

I decided to order the Rio Grande Slam which came with pancakes, bacon, eggs, and toast.  I also ordered a cinnamon bun because I was craving one.  Everything tasted good, and the cinnamon bun was extremely sweet.  I have a big sweet tooth, so I don’t find a lot of things “too sweet”.  In all, the food was excellent.

  1. Cinnamon roll looks delicious, and so does the rest of breakfast. Love the big pile of whipped topping on the coffee, too :).
