Pandora 2 Diner (Cinnaminson)

Pandora 2 Diner (Cinnaminson) pork chops

While in New Jersey, I went to the Pandora 2 Diner in Cinnaminson. It’s been several years since I went to the original Pandora Diner in Springfield. The Pandora 2 Diner was actually once the Jersey Diner but has since gone under new management. I thought I went to the Jersey Diner more recently than in 2016, but time flies. Anyway, truthfully it looks nearly identical to the Jersey Diner but with a new name.

Pandora 2 Diner Atmosphere: A

If you are looking for the most stereotypical diner in the land, you can’t beat the Pandora 2 Diner. The outside is chrome, while the inside is as retro as can be. There is a full-length bar with plenty of shiny tables and booths. You walk in next to a giant dessert bar, and boy does it look good. It looks like they just ordered “retro diner” online. A big metallic and shiny diner? What more could you want.

Coffee: A

The coffee at the Pandora 2 Diner was brewed hot and fresh and tasted great. I have no complaints.

Pandora 2 Diner Food: A

Whew, I think the Pandora 2 Diner menu is the biggest diner menu I’ve ever seen, and after 400+ diners in the US, I think that says a lot.

There were at least 4 pages of specials. I decided to stick to the specials because it seemed overwhelming to look at eight full pages of food. I think the Pandora 2 Diner probably has over 500 menu items. There are 36 omelet choices, ten different wraps, 10 different paninis, 19 different burgers, 30 sandwiches, 5 grilled cheeses, 23 different salads, 40 mini meals, etc. The list is truly endless. A few of the Pandora 2 Diner menu items that stuck out to me include:

  • Bourbon Style Salmon that included broiled salmon with Jack Daniels sauce
  • Big Apple Land and Sea that included grilled steak and scallops in lemon butter sauce
  • Apple Gorgonzola pork loin with fresh apples topped with gorgonzola cheese
  • Macho men fried platter which came with fried flounder, clam strips, and tartar sauce
  • “Our famous Grilled Chicken” which came with asparagus, mushrooms with fig balsamic sauce
  • The 36 Omelet Choices: There is an omelet for every flavor and style.
  • Golden brown hotcakes (pancakes) with raisins and walnuts. I’ve never seen that at a diner before?

As you can see, they have plenty of options from breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you can’t find what you are looking for, I don’t know what to tell you. You can see the full Pandora 2 Diner menu here.

Pandora 2 Diner (Cinnaminson) pork chops

I decided to order the apple gorgonzola pork lion since I haven’t had pork chops in a while. It also came with two sides and soup or salad and dessert. It was delicious. There were three pork chops and enough green beans to feed three people.

Despite running 10 miles that day, I still had enough food for two entire meals. Not only was it a substantial portion, but it tasted good too. What more could you want? How many times have I used what more could you want in a review?

Pandora Diner 2 Dessert: C

My meal came with a free dessert, and I was able to choose from cake of the day and several different types of puddings and jello. I opted for the cake of the day, which was raspberry. It was a little drier than I prefer, but it was decent. My guess is it was sitting for a little while.

The waitress was friendly, and the food came out fast. I have no complaints.

Cost: $

For my pork chops and coffee it was $15. I’ve probably been in California too long, but I could not believe it. That would easily be a $30-$40 meal on the west coast.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Pandora 2 Diner?

I really liked the Pandora 2 Diner, and I have no complaints. There are so many different menu options I want to try. It was cheap, good food, and fast service. Plus, it couldn’t look any more like a diner if you tried. To add to the trend of this review: what more can you want in a diner?
