Diner Round Up – The Westfield Diner

photo 1(1)

I really enjoy going to Westfield because it’s a great, small, walkable town with lots of shops and restaurants. One of these restaurants in the Westfield Diner, a very popular diner located in the downtown area. I went to check it out with friends, including my friend Krista who has a DIY blog called Creating Krista! (You should check it out)

The diner is super cute and clean, with it’s homemade desserts front and center when you walk in. Everything they had in their dessert case looked delicious.

Their menu is really big, but if you’re a planner like me you can look at the menu in advance on their website.

I decided on getting the Chesapeake Crabcake Salad because it sounded delicious and their crabcakes are made there, not frozen. Anything that involved crabcakes and avocado definitely has my interest.   My salad did not disappoint…it was delicious. And huge! I definitely got my money’s worth.

Everyone at my table had something on their plate that looked tasty. I enjoyed the fact that the Westfield diner has typical diner food, but also more creative items on their menu.

I would highly recommend this diner!

Official Press Release:

Arts Guild New Jersey is pleased to present New Jersey Isn’t Boring, curated by Cyd Katz-Seidel creator of NewJerseyIsntBoring.com. The exhibit will feature the artwork of the over thirty New Jersey artists who were selected through an open juried competition. The exhibition, which opened on March 22 , runs through April 16, 2015, at Arts Guild New Jersey, 1670 Irving Street, Rahway, NJ 07065. Gallery Hours are Mon-Thurs 10am-4pm, Fri: 10am to 2pm, Sat & Sun: 1-4pm or by appointment for groups of 10 or more. The exhibition is wheelchair accessible.

“If there is one thing that all New Jersey residents know to be true it’s that people who live in it love it, and outsiders have a bad impression of it. Years of terrible reality television shows have tarnished the reputation of the great, Garden State. It’s time for people to get back to appreciating a state that is known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant cities, great food, eclectic culture and so much more. New Jersey is becoming a stereotype and it’s time for things to change.” – Cyd Katz –Seidel, Curator.

Bruce Buns

“Bruce Buns 1.1″ by Chris Ernst

The intention of the exhibit is to provoke a new audience to take a new look at New Jersey. All artists exhibiting work are residents of New Jersey and their art work reflects different aspects of New Jersey including its beaches, landmarks, food, history, pop culture and more.

Brewery Review: Lunacy Brewing Co in Magnolia, NJ

FullSizeRender(4)

I am very quickly checking off  visiting a lot of breweries all around New Jersey! Good thing I recently became a NJ Craft Beer Member!

This past weekend I got to go to three breweries in one day! My first stop was the Lunacy Brewing Co, which is located in Magnolia, NJ. If you’re driving around looking for it, it’s across the street from the Lowe’s in town.

The tap room is located in a warehouse, and the area itself is very cozy. They have couches, tables, and a bar where customers can hang out and drink.

FullSizeRender(2)

They had 6 beers on tap, which you can try a “shorty” size for $2 a piece, two of the more limited beers were $3. I tried 5 out of the 6 beers.

Beers I tried while I was there:

FullSizeRender(3)

– Lunacy IPA
– Moon Howler Pale Ale
– Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout
– Sanitarium Double IPA
– Beautiful Baby’s Belgian Blonde Ale

The beer I did not try was a coffee stout, which is not really my thing. My friends loved it though!

My favorite beer was the Belgian Blonde Ale, so I ended up taking home a 32oz growler (which has already been finished by the time this post has been published).

(FYI, that is not my hand)

All and all, it’s a great brewery with a great staff! I definitely plan on going back. They also had a lot of great merch, including t-shirts which can be seen here:

Diner Round Up – The Sunset Diner in Ocean Twp

photo 1(1)

The Sunset Diner in Ocean Twp (or Wanamassa depending on who you ask) is a great little diner in the center of tons of shopping. It is also 3 minutes away from Kane Brewing in case you are looking for a meal and a beer.

The diner itself is bigger than it looks for the outside, but it is still  a pretty small diner.  Blink and you could miss it! Although it was the morning Sunday rush, we luckily got a table very quickly. The staff is very friendly there.

Their prices are extremely affordable. It’s probably one of the most affordable diners I’ve ever been to.

I ended up getting a Mediterranean omelet that was basically a gyro omelet, which is pretty cool. It had feta, onions, tomatoes, and a choice or chicken or beef gyro. It also came with pita instead toast which I found delightful.  Plus it came with a side of tzatziki sauce!

photo 3

The diner is a definitely a local hang out and seems to get a ton of repeat business . You should see their pictures of celebrities who have dined there! It’s cute, it’s cozy and most importantly their food is great (you should see their desserts!). I definitely recommend it!
