Nudy’s Cafe (Paoli)

Nudy’s Cafe (Paoli)

A few weeks ago, writer Jen M. and I met up at Nudy’s Cafe in Paoli.  Jen was out that way and we both wanted (and needed) to get out for a hike. She suggested Nudy’s Cafe, which recently opened.  Nudy’s Cafe has several locations in the suburbs of Pa; including Ardmore, West Chester, Phoenixville, Exton, and many more. After spending more time than anticipated riding through Philadelphia Traffic (when is that not the case?), I made it.Nudys Cafe Paoli

Nudy’s Cafe (Paoli) Atmosphere: A
The exterior of Nudy’s Cafe is clean, modern, and cute. It’s not a big, shiny, diner but a small modern building. The inside is bright and clean. There are several tables throughout the diner.  We sat in the back corner.  It wasn’t crowded but there is plenty of space, so you don’t feel like you’re sitting on top of anyone.

Nudy’s Cafe (Paoli) Coffee: A

The coffee at Nudy’s cafe was great. The waitress kept both Jen and I’s coffee refilled at all times.  It was hot and fresh, locally brewed Lacas coffee. I couldn’t have asked for better coffee.

Nudy’s Cafe (Paoli) Food: A

The Nudy’s Cafe menu has everything a stereotypical diner usually has, but it’s only open for breakfast and lunch. The promise at Nudy’s Cafe is to make you feel welcome, nourished and excited about coming back because of the freshly-made, great food.

On the menu, there are plenty of omelets, sandwiches, and salad options. On the back, there was a full page of specials. I contemplated the avocado toast (I’ve never had that before) but ultimately decided to order the Greek Wrap with a side mixed salad.

The Greek wrap was stuffed with chickpeas, feta cheese, greens, onions, and tomatoes. The side salad wasn’t anything unusual but tasted good too. In all, it was a good meal.

Bandwagon Diner (Toms River)

Bandwagon Diner (Toms River)

Bandwagon Diner (Toms River, NJ)

Recently the owner of New Jersey isn’t boring, Cyd, and myself met at another diner in Toms River. We’ve been to a few Toms River diners, a few months ago; we met at the Fast Break Diner as well as the Four Seasons.  We’ve been to over 20 diners together!  The Bandwagon Diner is a family owned diner that takes pride in the standard.

Bandwagon Diner Atmosphere: B
The atmosphere of the Bandwagon Diner is stereotypical of many diners down the shore. It looks rustic and beachy. The inside is a bit outdated but still decent. There are several booths, tables, and a full-length bar. Plus, it has pink curtains.  It could use an update, but it was clean, which is what matters.

Bandwagon Diner Coffee: B
There was nothing unusual or unique, but it was hot. The waitress refilled it a few times too.

Bandwagon Diner Food: B
The Bandwagon Diner menu has everything from big breakfasts to lunch and dinner specials.  The family-operated restaurant serves the freshest breakfast around with a full breakfast menu.

A few of the Bandwagon Diner menu items that spoke to me were fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon, juicy burgers. I was going to order off the Bandwagon specials menu with a wrap that contained  “chopped meat,” but since I had enough mystery meat in high school, I ordered the Mediterranean wrap.  It contained grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, tomato, and spinach. In all the wrap was good but the tomato cooked spinach made it soggy.

I ordered a side salad which was nothing unique.  In all the meal was good, but it wasn’t my favorite.

Bandwagon Diner Service: B
The waitress was friendly, and our food came out quickly. In fact, the food was one of the fastest to come in out in any diner I’ve been too.  We were in and out of the diner within 30 minutes!

Bandwagon Diner Cost: $$
For my wrap, salad, coffee, the cost was about 12.

Overall Thoughts/Summary of the Bandwagon Diner:
I liked the Bandwagon Diner, and it is one of my more favorite diners of the area. I would go back.  The service was quick.
