The Diner’s History


The Beginning

Our diner’s location has a long history of serving Edison, New Jersey, and the surrounding areas of Metuchen, Fords, Woodbridge, and other towns. Long ago, the establishment served as an inn where travelers on their horse carriages would stop for food and rest before they continued on their long journey. It then became a thriving tavern before the 1960s.

Its Transition Into a Diner

In the early ‘60s, the building became the “The Menlo Coach Diner.” It was then sold and renamed as “The Suburban Diner’ in 1976.

Becoming The Menlo Park Diner

Our family bought the diner in 1990. Eight years later, we renovated it into the classic New Jersey diner with the bright ‘50s aesthetic that it has today.
