Both visitors and locals feel welcome at Terry’s Cozy Corner Cafe. A family-run neighborhood staple for 60 years, this coffee shop is on the corner of Ridge Road and New York Avenue. Diners talk about friendly service and tasty breakfast and lunch fare. Sit down at the counter or in a booth in this 1970s-style diner to enjoy coffee or tea and chat with the wait staff.
Get your coffee fix any time at the Colonial Diner. This coffee spot is open 24 hours a day, every day. When you want to experience the retro feel of an old-fashioned carhop, go to the Colonial Diner. The building has a classic 1950s look and feel inside and out.
You won’t find fancy coffee here, simply the good strong coffee you expect to get at a local diner. Just off Route 3, the Colonial Diner is a convenient spot to have coffee and a meal if you’re staying at a nearby hotel for a game or concert at MetLife Stadium, part of the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
It Started With A Cupcake

You’ll find this bakery cafe near the center of town on Stuyvesant Avenue near the train station.
