Perhaps I was just at the tail end of breakfast or maybe seeing the cook with the filthy clothes just made my food taste worse...I had a simple order of home fries and roasted veggies. The home fries were so overcooked, dried and crumbled up, it must have been at the bottom of the frozen home fries package. If they... More

When we eat breakfast out it is usually at a local tried and tested diner, so trying something new was not easy.. Carver's was recommended to us by a friend. The number of options is somewhat less than a typical New Jersey diner. Rather, more of a small-town cafe. I went for the breakfast they are known for: multi-grain pancakes... More

We drive 30 minutes every week to go to Carver's for breakfast. My kids love it too much, we pass all our local spots in Morristown to go to Denville. Weekend mornings can be busy so arrive early or try it on a weekday. Pancakes are unbelievable. Multigrain ones are excellent. Omelettes are perfect, with fresh ingredients. Every week there...

We have eaten here and at the predecessor restaurant, Docs, many times. It was a great place for breakfast or lunch. We recently took our granddaughter for breakfast and were sadly disappointed by the food and the less than efficient service. One would think that a place specializing in breakfast could cook a good omelet. Both L and I had... More

We were visiting relatives who directed us to have a late breakfast/early lunch here. The portions are generous and tasty. There is not a lot of seating and clearly the place is popular, judging by the crowd. It's worth the wait, though. We'd go here again if we are in the area.

Home made breads of several varieties, daily specials and probably the best breakfast in and around Denville-Boonton Township-Mountain Lakes. Great omelets, eggs, French toast, pancakes and all the trimmings. Beware, it can be crowded at peak hours and the service is always friendly but very slow due to a small kitchen.

The food at Carver's, the old Doc's Kitchen, is quite good and it is always busy with patrons.. They serve only breakfast (all day) and lunch and their specialty pancakes and omelets are terrific. The restaurant would have received more stars but I cannot figure out their restroom. It is a restroom and storage facility for unperishable goods for the... More

Had the multigrain pancakes and coffee. They were good! Texture was a nice twist. The mix matched mugs made you feel like home. Service was quick. The only gripe is the turnover because of limited seating.
