Having breakfast out on Sunday mornings is always one of my favorite things to do, and this Sunday was no exception.
The Horizon Diner is one of the oldest businesses in town. Some years back, the diner was renovated by a previous owner and is now more up to date than its original self. Although the previous owner did most of the updates, credit must be given to the new owner for the upgraded food and service.
Today’s visit offered both good food and some exceptional service. It has always been one of my pet peeves that most restaurants won’t accommodate a request for something special.Â Diners however, are usually very capable and willing to prepare a dish not on its menu pages.
I like omelets with a lot going on inside, so I asked for one with cheddar and bacon with sauteed scallions and jalapenos, not too brown ( well done is a no no ) and sides of salsa and sour cream. Our waitress was a real pleasure too as she didn’t flinch when I preceded to rap off everything I wanted. She actually played along very well with the kidding we gave her during the placement of our orders.
All in all the food was done just right and we all had a good time, which is the way it should be when going out to eat.

Bay Ave Manahawkin NJ 08050
I lived in Manahawkin most of my life and remember that Diner well, way before it modernized. There was that one, the one right by the lake, and also one out on 72 where the airport(now Walmart) used to be. Diners are great. There is a pretty good one here in Beachwood on Rt.9 that we go to. My son loves ordering a BLT, “without the T, please”, he says. Thanks for bringing back memories.
