Park Diner and Pancake House (Linden, NJ)
Formally known as the Park 27 Diner, the Park Diner and Pancake House has recently gone through new management. After doing a short run at Warinanco Park, I noticed the Park Diner and Pancake House. I couldn’t remember if I had been. It looked like a nice diner and I’ve been to Linden multiple times. After searching my blog, I realized I hadn’t been to either the Park 27 Diner nor the Park Diner and Pancake House. To be fair, this has only happened one other time and I usually remember which diners I’ve been (or not). That being said, sometimes I go to a diner at night and roads look different. No excuses though.
Park Diner and Pancake House Atmosphere: B
The Park Diner and Pancake House overlooks Warinanco Park. It’s a modern diner. It’s not shiny or metallic, but it is well kept with a large parking lot.
The inside has plenty of booths, tables, and a bar. Plus, the Park Diner and Pancake House also has a salad bar, which is increasingly more challenging to find diners with such.

The coffee at Park Diner and Pancake House was brewed hot and fresh and I couldn’t have asked for better coffee.
Park Diner and Pancake House Food: A
The Park Diner and Pancake House menu has plenty of options. Outside there is a large sign that says new menu specials and hospitality, which I found interesting. There are all of the regular diner options from pages of breakfast specials, lunch specials, and several dinner options like steak and seafood. By the name, I would assume they are well known for pancakes. I was between pancakes, french toast, or the avocado toast and ultimately I decided to order their avocado mash. Can you believe I’ve never had avocado toast before? A diner seemed like the perfect time to do it.
The avocado mash came with two pieces of toast topped with avocado and poached eggs. It also came with a grilled tomato, which I appreciated. It was delicious and fun to try something new.

The waitress at the Park Diner and Pancake House was friendly and my food came out fast. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Park Diner and Pancake House?
