Legendary Carnegie Diner & Café opens first New Jersey location
The Carnegie Diner & Café, whose flagship location is in Manhattan near Carnegie Hall, now has a New Jersey location, too. It’s located in the Harmon Meadow shopping center in Secaucus.
According to JerseyDigs.com, the restaurant is 6,600 square feet and will seat 199 people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
It has a classic diner menu featuring breakfast served all day, every day; some of their breakfast offerings include steak and (organic) eggs, avocado toast (available with lobster), eggs Benedict (also available with lobster), waffles, pancakes, crepes and more. Since they have a liquor license, they also serve mimosas and bloody marys if you are so inclined (and beer and wine, etc.).
Steak and eggs
Their lunch and dinner menu features the stand-bys you would expect from a diner: burgers, chicken, several varieties of pastrami/corned beef sandwiches, lobster rolls, and more. For dinner, there are steaks and pasta, chicken, and fish.
That’s the one-pound pastrami sandwich (the regular sandwich is only ½ pound.
They’re also very proud of their milkshakes:
That’s a waffle ice cream sandwich milkshake

The Carnegie Diner& Café also bills itself as the first diner in America serving a full plant-based menu, with a full slate of appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, and salads.
For dessert, try the 24-layer chocolate cake.
The diner is open 7:30-11:00 M-Sat. and 7:30-10:00 on Sunday.
