We just stopped there for a late breakfast on our way back from the Jersey shore. I had the Farmer's Omelette which was excellent. I was dying for dessert but was too full to order anything.

I love meeting folks here for a business meeting/lunch. The rail dining car works perfectly. Not as many folks so less noise. The food is good and the service is attentive.

We stopped here for breakfast with our grandkids and were surprised on seeing the dining car or train as my grandkids named it inside the diner. Breakfast was great food was plentiful and good variety. The staff was friendly.
