Pros: good choice of fish and possibility to order grilled, broiled or seared fish with the choice of cooking degree from raw to well done.
Cons: service, lightning.
Waiter put our meals on the table and disappeared. My attempts to get attention of other staff members were unsuccessful for over 5 minutes, even loudly calling and waiving my hand several times right before them, as if they were staring into space - this kind of experience I have not had in any restaurant in the USA.
Lightning consists of a tiny blue lamp on the table. I had to use my flashlight to read the menu.

B&W Bakery: Famous Crumb Cake
Bakeries were a staple when I was growing up. Every Sunday my father and I used to go to the bakery for crumb cake, rolls, and a black & white cookie for me. B&W reminds me of that time as well as providing delicious baked goods!
The superlatives about B&W's crumb cake - "best in NJ", "best in the U.S." - fly off the tongue. Of course, every crumb cake connoisseur knows that the key is the crumb to cake ratio and B&W has that down right!!
From having the famous crumb cake we progressed to other baked goods - cupcakes/big cookies for my daughter's school, spice cake, breads/rolls, and the most amazing Brown Derby cake. Everything is baked fresh daily and the place has that wonderful bakery smell and warmth.
I love their Black & White cookies, Raspberry filled cookies, and Chocolate Chip cookies too!
Prices are reasonable. Cash only - ATM machine inside.
Dom Pomodoro: Great Food, Especially Sunday Brunch!
Dom Pomodoro's is a nice Italian restaurant, perfect for a quiet dinner or a family Sunday brunch. The regular menu (lunch & dinner) has the usual Italian staples and daily specialty items. The chicken dishes are very good, as are the steaks.

But be sure to save room for dessert! Several kinds of cakes, (delicious) flan, brownies, several types of fruit/melon, a chocolate fountain with marshmallows, bananas, etc.
Sunday Brunch is served from 11:30-3:00. Price of $19.95 includes meal and beverage (including Mimosa or Bloody Mary).
Service is attentive. Nice atmosphere - quiet background music, tables spaced nicely.

When you live in New Jersey,...
When you live in New Jersey, you take diners for granted. Move away and you start jonesing for 24-hour food! Hackensack features the Arena Diner, Coach House Diner, Heritage Diner, with other diners nearby in Hasbrouck Heights, Lodi and Paramus along the highways.
These places are typically owned and operated by Greek families with many years of experience in the business.
Favorite Dish: Anything at anytime! Say it's 3:00 am and you and your friend are rolling in from last call at a local bar. You want breakfast food and your friend wants a steak. In these places, it's no problem. I believe they've all gotten liquor licenses, too, in recent years.
