Read on for more about the Chit Chat Diner — a bucket list Jersey diner experience in West Orange.
Tucked inside a miniature castle, visitors will find Alice in Wonderland right here in North Jersey. From high ceilings to intensely patterned furniture, you’ll notice something new every time you visit this spot.
Located at 410 Eagle Rock Avenue in West Orange, this diner is situated along the Watchung Mountains providing one of the best vantage points of Manhattan. It also has a parking lot.
The staple of any diner should be the breakfast food. The Chit Chat Diner dishes out over 10 pancake, french toast, and waffle selections each. And each comes with its own mini bottle of syrup.
We suggest trying the Goud Fig French Toast, it just sounds good. There are also numerous omelets, egg plates, egg white dishes, and plenty of sides for pairing.
For something spicy in the morning, noon, or night, order the Benedict Arepa. This dish fuses the classic Eggs Benedict with a Latin flair. Instead of English muffins, crispy arepas are topped with two poached eggs, grilled chorizo, manchego, and hollandaise sauce and served with plantain chips.
One of the best dishes here might just be the Three Baked Eggs. This dish features prosciutto, chicken sausage, basil, and ricotta in a tomato sauce served with warm brick oven olive bread.
The menu includes a variety of drinks like coffee, beer, wine, sodas, lemonade, and tea as well as salads, sandwiches, wraps, and pasta.
For dessert, order a slice of the decadent New York-style cheesecake, Layered Carrot Cake, or opt for something creamier like classic milkshakes and ice cream. Other classic sweet choices include creamy rice pudding, chocolate chip cookies, and an assortment of pies.
