Coffee shop with a diner feel and a collage of celeb posters—from Audrey Hepburn to the Kennedys to Rocky Balboa. Healthy breakfast and lunch favorites range from avocado toast and açai bowls to omelettes, bagels, waffles and more. Limited indoor and outdoor seating.
The mom-and-pop shop was founded in 1960 by Jersey native Seymour Schram, who turned it over to his friend Louis Bucca before his death. Over the years, its original offerings have been updated and expanded.

Sandwiches on fresh-baked bagels range from eggs and avocado (pictured) to classic cream cheese and lox. Breakfast items include wraps, omelettes, pancakes and waffles, as well as locally named sandwiches such as the Livingston (fresh lox, scrambled eggs and onions) and the Short Hills (steak, fried eggs, sautéed onions and cheese). There are Mexican huevos rancheros, wraps and Hawaiian poke bowls. All can be ordered with sides, from bacon to chia-seed pudding. Beverages include coffees, teas, juices and smoothies. For lunch, try their salads, panini and specialty sandwiches. Vegetarian and vegan-friendly options also available.
