Love Nudy's Cafe but too far!?
I used to like Miel's for brunch in Stockton, NJ. I have not been to it for since it changed hands and is now Lily's meals.
Have you been to Full Moon Cafe or Caffe Galleria in lambertville? Both are good, perhaps not as good as Nudys.
If you can get a key, you might check out Freds in New Hope. www.fredsbreakfast.com
In Doylestown, Cross Keys Diner is pretty good, though you may not want to drive that far.
I know you know the Frenchtown/Stockton/Lambertville area well cmad, so I am not sure these are any help.
I'm outside New Hope, and haven't found a breakfast/brunch spot I love. Although brunch at Karla's in New Hope is really enjoyable, the food's good and the fact that the bar is open and serving good bloodies is plus. Just don't even try in the summer or busy weekends in the fall.
Never been to Nudy's so can't offer a comparison. What I miss from the western 'burbs for breakfast/brunch/lunch is The Classic Diner in Malvern. If wish there was something/anything like that in the general New Hope/Lambertville area.
