Sunday Morning Breakfast in New Brunswick?
Our plan is to head over to the Readington Festival of Ballooning for the 6:45 am mass launching of over 100 balloons and then stop in the New Brunswick area on our way home (guessing around 8 or before) for breakfast. Any ideas?
The only place I can even think of offhand that might be open that early on a Sunday is Dish Cafe in Highland Park, right over the bridge from New Brunswick on Route 27 (Raritan Avenue). It's a diner, with diner menu, diner food, diner service, and diner decor. But they are known for their breakfasts: bagels, waffles, omelets, pancakes. I'd call though to find out what time they open.
Tyvm for the quick reply Joan. My own research has turned up three choices:
Sandy's Luncheonette in E. Brunswick
Oaxaqueno 2 in New Brunswick
Le Peep on Rt 1 just outside New Brunswick
I would love to try Oaxaqueno as I haven't had a plate of Chilaquilles (sp?) in a long time.
Still hoping for other thoughts, but just off to EMP for dinner in the city. Will check in later.
If you're going to venture out to a place like Sandy's (with btw, I wouldn't recommend, it's a simple strip mall joint that's not at all special)
Close on Rt 18 is Colonial Diner, which was an awesome brunch. It's sister diner is the Skylark Diner on rt 1 which is also close. it's not a 'normal' dinner, skylark....NYT actually gave it 4 stars. Colonial, though, I think is better for sunday brunch. I recommend Chipotle Benedict :)
Colonial Diner & Restaurant
429 Lacey Rd Ste B, Forked River, NJ 08731
I think the diner recommendation is a good one. There is also a fairly decent diner on Easton Ave on the way into New Brunswick near the McDonalds. I forget the name.
If you want New Brunswick proper, consider The Hyatt or the Heldrich hotels. Both open around 6:30 A.M. for breakfast.
Hope you had a great time, but if this does get searched, I really enjoy Le Peep, but it's a good 10/15 minutes outside New Brunswick. But I enjoy their scrambles and their breakfasts and would hit them whenever I got the chance. My favorite is the garden one, with cream cheese and broccoli and almonds. Of course, I love a good Jersey diner breakfast too!
