Yum! The Best Cafeteria in New Jersey is Among the Best in America
Merriam-Webster defines a cafeteria as "a restaurant in which the customers serve themselves or are served at a counter and take the food to tables to eat". Many folks love a "cafeteria" setting where they can choose their own items, serve themselves, and save time waiting for an order. Cafeteria restaurants are once again gaining popularity and there are many popping up across America.
"Mashed" recently did an article that looked at the best cafeterias around the nation, including right here in New Jersey. "There is nostalgia and simplicity to dining in a cafeteria, and the fact that they are not so easy to track down these days makes it all the more poignant. Sometimes you just want to sit with a group of friends and spill the tea like you used to at the high school lunch table, or hang with Grandpa and listen to him wax poetic about hanging out at the local canteen."
Here in New Jersey, Mashed choose a cafeteria in Ocean County as their pick for best in the Garden State. Mashed highlighted "Cafotteria Modern Eatery" in Lakewood. "Cafeterias are synonymous with comfort food, so why not consider getting lunch at Cafotteria Modern Eatery, a Kosher Dairy restaurant with a sophisticated cafeteria layout in Lakewood, New Jersey? The stylish dining room is a great palace to enjoy a meal whether it be a straightforward breakfast of an omelet and potato hash or a sushi-grade poké bowl. Prices will be steeper here than at other cafeterias (it's New Jersey), but it doesn't skimp on creativity — dessert picks include an oven-fired s'mores pizza."
Cafotteria Modern Eatery is located at the Avenue Shoppes at 12 America Ave, Lakewood, NJ 08701.
