This is the best breakfast in the area. Biscuit and gravy was amazing. We've lived in the area over a year and this is the first great breakfast restaurant we have found. Excellent service.

My wife really liked the decor and familiar feel of the diner. We tried the breakfast quesadilla and pineapple upside-down pancakes. Both were delicious as was the gravy biscuit I had as a side. Portions were generous. Price was reasonable considering we had leftovers. Waitress was quick with the refills and the food made it to our table surprisingly fast. The staff welcomed other customers who appeared to be regulars. All in all a very good first impression. Looking forward to returning and trying something different as the breakfast menu has a lot of tempting options.

Everything is usually outstanding, but today the home fries were cold and hard, seemed like they were prolly left over batch from breakfast. They are usually really good. We were there shortly after 1130.

Our family of six went to Citrus the Diner because of the vast variety of menu options. A lot of us got breakfast. I had the shrimp and grits which were creamy and absolutely delicious! The staff is very knowledgeable about the gluten free options available. My son said the gluten- free toast was amazing, which is something you can’t usually say about gluten-free bread. I can’t wait to go back to this charming little restaurant with a fresh menu and great service! Thanks to Jersey and management for making it so enjoyable!
