Diners of New Jersey - Jersey Shore Edition

August 06, 2013


New Jersey is considered the diner capital of the world. 


There are hundreds of diners in the state, and they are an integral part of the New Jersey dining experience. 


Many are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 


The diner in the top photo is the Marvis Diner in Wildwood, New Jersey. 

This week I am posting photos of diners I have visited located near or at the Jersey shore. 

Next is the Princess Maria Diner in Wall Township:

In  the Wildwoods, many of the buildings are in the Doo-Wop Style, or Googie Architecture,  


The top photo of the Marvis Diner is an example of that.

There is also the Doo Wop Diner on the Wildwood boardwalk:
