Great breakfast in an unexpected place!!!! Went in on a Saturday with the Family to check this place out and we fell in love! Good food, great service and a wonderful staff! It's our new favorite breakfast place!

Whenever we stay in Newark, we make it a point to eat breakfast at the Big Apple Cafe. While the menu contains only typical breakfast fare, the food is delicious. The staff is always welcoming and cheerful. I would highly recommend the Big Apple Cafe.

Their in cafe breakfast menu is shorter than the online version but exactly what we were looking for. They cook eggs perfectly, whether scrambled or over easy, and their bacon is delicious. We got the standard breakfast fare and my son ordered an additional slice of French toast--nice that they offer this as a side--that he said was very tasty.... More

This little place has really good food. Service is never a sure thing. Sometimes the service is great and sometimes its bad. Be sure and get a cream puff. They are to die for. Just wish they weren't always out of them. Same thing for the soup. Its always so good but they are usually out

No frills at this little diner but they aren't necessary. The food is enough to bring you back for more. Strongly recommend the house French toast special as a breakfast dessert to share with a friend!

Just a little place connected to the Auction Center. Mostly tables for 2 and 4, a few High tops, and a counter with stools. Waitresses are nice, always busy taking care of customers. Place is often full. A bit noisy, but reminiscent of an old diner atmosphere. Restrooms are adjacent, parking is out front. I like to go on a... More

I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The staff always makes you feel welcome, and the food is delicious. I always order the "Big Apple Breakfast," and it has been fixed to perfection each time. I enjoy meeting friends here for a relaxing, scrumptious, breakfast. Definitely worth your time!
