It wasn't exactly around the corner from us, but I faithfully made the trip there at least once a week. Why? Because it is sooooooo worth it! Their desserts are truly amazing, the breads are perfect! We had them do our wedding cake and it was *almost* the best part of our wedding day!
We had my sons birthday party here - a sports themed party - and it was a HUGE success! The staff is amazingly helpful and were very quick to accomodate all of our ideas. They arranged for more than adequate space for us, helped us to supply and organize all activities and really kept the fun going the whole party through. From what I understand there are many different themes that they will help you to incorporate. If you are getting ready to plan your childs party, I would highly recommend giving them a call to see what they have to offer!
If you are in the market for more educational toys, this is the place for you. I've found many unique and well loved gifts in this store. They have quite a diverse selection and a very helpful staff that will help you choose exactly the right product for the child you are trying to buy for.
Every year the kids look forward to our trips to Claws N Paws during the summer. It's a bit of a drive for us, but the trip takes you off the highway and through some nice backroads which makes it more enjoyable. The zoo itself seems to sit in the middle of almost nowhere. The admission fee is quite reasonable...there are a good amount of animals to see...they have a petting area...and there are also shows involving the animals that go on throughout the day. The food offered there is not overly priced. There is a lot of walking, but since you are in a fairly heavily wooded area, it's shady and easygoing.
A very reasonable chinese food restaurant located right in the center of town. The food is good and prepared fast and the prices are right. I definitley recommend this place when the urge for chinese food hits!
A very helpful staff and huge selection of products makes this a great place to go for your sporting needs. My son loves the batting cages and thinks its the perfect place for having parties. This is also one of the only places in our immediate area where I was able to purchase all of my daughters girl scout needs (uniforms, pins, badges, etc.) If it's something sports related that you need, chances are good that you will find it here.
Cliff's is tradition for anyone who lives in the area. Known mostly for it's homemade ice cream (which if I may say is absolutely amazing!) they also have a grill. We've had ice cream cakes from Cliff's for birthday partys that were by far the best!
Unfortunately, we have had to enlist the services of Davis & Hepplewhite twice for our family. Both times we could not have asked for a more caring or helpful service. The attention to detail was perfect, the services were beautiful and their overall concern for you complete satisfaction is quite impressive. Ihave to admit that they definitley went above and beyond our expections in our familys time of grief.
Joe's pizza is by far the best place for pizza in Northern New Jersey. The atmostphere is great, the prices are great and the pizza is out of this world. If you haven't tried Joes yet, you have got to put this on your list of "must haves"!
Common Sense for Animals is a no kill shelter. Dr. Belize, a great veterinarian and his staff make up the foundation for this wonderful loving environment for unwanted pets. They place a high priority on the standard of care that their animals receive. If you are in the market for adopting a new pet into your home this is definitley the first stop I'd recommend that you make.
