breakfast in Trenton/Bordentown area

Any good places for a classic breakfast in these parts? Older lunch counter-type places preferred. (I've been to Mastoris and it's good but hoping for someplace a bit less frenetic.) Open early is a plus.

  1. Fred & Pete's in Hamilton is kind of the classic breakfast place in the mornings. It is open way early and isn't usually super crazy. Right on 33 in Hamilton. I've always had a good breakfast there and I really like the atmosphere.

    I've heard that the cafe on Park street in Bordentown(right near the corner of Farnsworth Avenue) is pretty good, but I've never been and can't vouch for it at all.

    Maybe Town & Country? I don't really remember being thrilled by their breakfasts though...

    Or possibly Pat's Diner on South Broad Street? I've always had good food at night there, and my pickier friends seem to enjoy ordering their breakfast items.

      Park Street Cafe is good and Jeff and Molly do a nice job.

      Never been to Pat's for breakfast, but frequent there for dinner quite often. Good food.

      People swear by the Wisdon Diner at the corner of Route 206 and Farnsworth Avenue, but still haven't tried it as of yet. -mJ

        The Wisdom Diner is OK but not at all special. Park St Cafe has much better pancakes and eggs. I think I also prefer Town & Country, but not so strongly.

    2. Woody’s Town Café on Main Street in Allentown, NJ is a quaint little storefront restaurant that has excellent breakfast and lunch items. Parking can be a problem, but the food is great. I particularly liked their corned beef hash and eggs.
