La Piazza Ristorante Brick Oven Pizza

Reviewed By travelfan77 - New Jersey

This place is fantastic! It is always crowded on the weekends and many nights during the week. I love their plain and brooklyn style pizzas. My family and I have been coming here for for over 15 years and never had an issue. We have ordered takeout just as much as we have dined-in. Unfortunately we moved over an hour away so coming back is rare. Everything they serve is fresh and delicious.

The Cream Ridge Winery

Reviewed By Rachel B

This was the last stop on a weekend road trip, fun fun fun! The owners were funny, friendly and had great detail about their wines. All are from locally grown fruit, some are proprietary. I usually prefer drier wines and most here were sweeter. I found some new favorites in the Blue Mooney, 99 Rows and Jersey Berry.

It is Dunkin Donuts, so the offerings are standard. What stands out is the location and service quality. It is on a busy crossroad so it is mostly busy, especially mornings. Yet the staff is always nice and courteous. So if I touch 539, this is the DD I go to..for their prompt , courteous and good service.

Service was quick with plenty of staff to serve. The late hours were a welcome find after finding other closed spots. Floor could use a good mopping.

The Moth Coffeehouse

Reviewed By Hgtravl - Marlton, New Jersey

I was in the area, and saw this place had vegan choices as well as regular menu choices.

Its located in a historic mill, beautiful building. The inside is so aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Beautiful rustic decor, very county feel. Lots of decor you would find on Etsy or a very artistic place.

The food was alright- nothing to great. I was sort of let down to be honest- had really high hopes for this place...

I ordered the vegan mac and cheese- $8.00, pretty pricey, but I figured for $8.00 its probably a large sized enough for a meal. Wrong. It came out in a tiny cup that you would be served as a side dish for a entree at a restaurant. I also was confused as it came with a salad- should be labeled on the menu as a SALAD with a side of mac and cheese. I put that issue aside hoping maybe it would be amazing and make up for its size, it was hardly warm, barley warm is putting it. Felt like they pre make it in the morning and just toss it in the microwave when served. For the price of $8.00, make it a larger size or try to make it better.... I was still hungry after the small dish, so I had a vegan cupcake. The vegan cupcake was great tho- maybe I could them on a bad day, I will give them another chance some time... There aren't many vegan friendly places in this area, so I will give it another whirl one day.

As a family we have been eating at Anthony's for 26 years. I'm Italian and I think it is one of the best and reasonably priced places for Italian food. I have never had a bad meal there, and neither has any members of my family.

Plumstead Grill

Reviewed By missbigfish - trenton, nj

Went on a Saturday night, the place was packed, so I was thinking,I guess it must be good.......nope not really.....found two seats at the bar.....The bar staff seems to be very overwhelmed and extremely unorganized. We did order drinks and asked for a menu...We opted to split the hot seafood appetizer with was ok....then we had a burger and a french dip sandwich, honestly the french dip was cold when it arrived, thank god the au jus was warm to dip the sandwich into, and the burger was just ok......Will we return probably not.....

Traveling through the area and the Starbucks locator app said it was too many mile to the next shop. Soon after we stopped heading to the shore, we passed a Wawa and a Dunkin' but I'm glad I spotted this place in a little shopping trip. Seems like a nice l8cal business. The key lime pastry we got was nothing special, but the coffe was good. I'd definitely stop there again.

Woody's Towne Cafe

Reviewed By ChesmoRR - Howell, New Jersey

Ran into Woody's this week for a quick, late breakfast and was so pleasantly surprised. I had an egg white western omelette and it was cooked perfectly. Portion was large with a hearty side of potatoes and toast. I couldn't finish the entire thing although I really wanted to because it was just that delicious. The server was very attentive but didn't visit the table too much. She always checked my coffee cup when she walked. Will definitely stop in again when I'm in the area.
