My wife and I stopped by The Mixing Bowl during a weekend stay in Vernon, NJ. The staff is friendly, the customers are mostly locals, the food is good, and the dining area is cozy. Stop by The Mixing Bowl and say hi if you want a quiet dining experience.

Very cute for Breakfast or brunch. The atmosphere is nice and inviting and service very good. That's a reason to keep coming back. Food is good to above average, but we have found a few diners in the area that are far better. Nice ambience, so we change it up for breakfast before skiing. Go early, or expect to wait... More

Fast friendly and delicious!!! This was recommended to us at the Appalachian and it was perfect! Hometown atmosphere, staff is courteous and the breakfast was mouth watering! It was a little crowded but service was fast!

Great place to go for breakfast when you are in Vernon. The food is very fresh and the wait staff very pleasant. My blueberry pancakes were simply delicious! Just like the ones Mom use to make. The only drawback is that it is quite popular but small so expect at the very least a 20 minute wait.

I go to Vernon every summer, and this place never disappoints you. It is nothing fancy, but the staff is great, all dishes I've tasted are delicious and the price is great. Best deal in Vernon.

The bad news is, they don't serve dinner. The good news is, they serve great breakfasts and lunches. The Philly cheesesteak is fantastic. There are lots of tasty things to choose from on their extensive menu and the meals are well priced. It's a very popular cafe, so you might have to wait for a table, but it is worth... More

Love coming here. Great for everyone and anyone. They cater to small groups and large. The food comes fast and delicious. Very very reasonable prices. Awesome with a budget. 2 ppl with egg specials can walk out paying as little as $11 and then tip. The waitresses are friendly and attentive. The ambience is quite and quant. Definitely a place...
