The Station at Mountain Lakes

Great bar and grill at the Mountain Lakes train station. Our realtor directed us there and I have enjoyed every meal we have had. The manager Carlos and staff are attentive and friendly. Atmosphere warm and cozy and outside patio is lovely.

Crumb cake at B&W Bakery in Hackensack

I have had the pleasure of this crumb cake when my husbands family would visit their old stomping grounds and bring this sweet indulgence back to Florida. While some Jersey cakes use a pound cake-like base, B & W’s “heavy crumb cake” is built upon a lightly sweet yeasted pastry, reminding me of sour dough. The huge topping of large crumbs, that sits atop the cake is perfection.



Fav Local Pub –  Thatcher McGees in Denville

Irish themed with thatched roof room, busy bar and friendly staff. Can catch rugby and soccer on their tv and a nice selection of brews!

Have heard over and over about the great corned beef (I do not partake) but I love their hamburgers! They also have a nice Sunday brunch.
