Malibu Diner (Hoboken)

Malibu Diner Hoboken

Malibu Diner (Hoboken, NJ)

A few weeks ago, I ended up in Hoboken at the Malibu Diner. I’ve heard the Malibu Diner is good and have wanted to get up there for a while. It seemed to work out well.  When I arrived around noon, it wasn’t crowded at all. I was shocked! There isn’t a lot of parking so it was a nice surprise!

Malibu Diner Atmosphere: A
The Malibu Diner is typical of any North Jersey Diner.  There is a bar and plenty of tables and booths.  I sat in the corner booth, which was quiet.

Malibu Coffee: A

The coffee at the Malibu Diner was good. I was pleasantly surprised to see they served Lacas coffee. It was hot and the waitress brought plenty of refills. Hard to argue with that!

Malibu Diner Food: A
The Malibu Diner menu has every option you need in a diner. I wasn’t sure what I was craving!

For those who don’t know, North Jersey has far better bagels than South Jersey, so I decided to order a bagel.  I’m sure it wasn’t the best (according to my good friend Amelia’s view), but it was much better than anything in South Jersey.

I was between a few options, including french toast but decided to order a protein wrap which had every kind of breakfast meat you might want.  It was packed. I was happy with it.

Questions for you:
What is your favorite type of bagel?
Do you have a favorite breakfast?


  1. Is that a fairly new diner or has it been around for a while? Also, North Jersey bagels are easily better than South Jersey bagels. This holds true for most foods with the exception of maybe cheesesteaks.

    1. Good question, I believe it has been around for a while. I think food wise, it really just depends on the area and town. Haddonfield in South Jersey has great options as does Collingswood but North Jersey is just more populated. has done a lot of articles with best areas.

      1. Having lived in both, I can say that at least in Gloucester county, they knew nothing of a good bagel.

      2. hahaha! I went to college in Upstate NY so I’m always missing good bagels. I have personally found the best bagel places to be within 50 miles of NYC. The best hot dogs are in the northwest corridor of NJ. LOL
