As the leaves are turning shades of red, yellow and orange, and the air feels crisp, it is the perfect time to sit down with a friend, a great cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast. If you’re in Gloucester County, that place is The Woodbury Station Café. An old train station turned quaint and cozy breakfast nook, the train station is the place to be in Gloucester County.
Owners Pat and Lonnie Finney are passionate about delivering “American cuisine with an upscale twist at an affordable price” and are opened for breakfast from 8am-2:30 pm and lunch from 11am-2:30 pm, Monday-Friday. Their breakfast items include a variety of dishes such as pancakes, waffles, and omelets, but their big breakfast draw are the beignets.
Specials are offered every day and differ every time you visit. Currently, there is a special surf and turf brunch offered only on Saturday and Sunday mornings. For $18.95 you can enjoy a variety of delicious, homemade dishes! Catering is also available, where you can hold your next event for parties up to 100, and create a unique menu fit for your party. Sign up for The Woodbury Station Café’s newsletter, where you will be in the know about special events and dining opportunities.
During my visit, I enjoyed a fluffy, savory omelet, filled with veggies and American cheese. Omelets are served with a fruit “kicker” and I substituted the house potatoes for crispy potatoes, made with onions. My friend had a stuffed French toast special with whipped cream and fruit, with a side of bacon. Another friend tried eggs, bacon and the crispy potatoes.
If you are looking for a unique place to meet friends for breakfast or lunch, The Woodbury Station Café is where you have to go. No matter what time of year you visit, it always feels like you are home. Rather than dining at a traditional diner, this gem is unique and that special place you always wanted to visit, again and again. The service is great, the coffee is hot, the food is excellent, and there is a beignet with your name on it.
