While crossing the state line from New York to New Jersey…it only made sense to go to one diner in particular: The State Line Diner in Mahwah, NJ. This 24-hour diner is located on Route 17 in Bergen County.
Established in 1976, this family owned and operated diner has been serving the North Jersey area for over 40 years. They owe their success to using high fresh quality ingredients, including quality beef and fresh fish. Their homemade desserts are also made on premises.
I went there for breakfast on a Sunday morning and the place was PACKED. I was relieved when we got seated right away. Although I didn’t get to see their main menu while I was there, their breakfast menu alone was huge. It made it very difficult to choose something…
They have many omelettes, Benedicts, pancakes, waffles, French toast etc etc. There were so many things I wanted including Nutella pancakes, an apple walnut waffle, and a crab cake Benedict.
Ultimately I decided to get something on the healthier side, an egg white grilled chicken and avocado omelette. Sooooooo good.
I also got a cup of coffee, which was Lavazza (and free refills).
My husband got one of their breakfast specials, a single pancake with 2 eggs and a choice of meat (he chose bacon).
I had to chuckle when I saw the amount of butter and syrup they gave us:
Overall, a really great trip to the State Line Diner. I can see why people put this diner on their favorites list! If you’re ever in the Mahwah/Ramapo University area I highly recommend it!
