Bergen-Lafayette lives up to New Jersey's reputation for good food, and here, locals find both classic and unusual cuisines. The Honey Bakery + Kitchen sells itself as a diverse Asian cuisine joint that melds the lines between what defines a bakery and a restaurant. With rice pilaf served with lamb for dinner and cottage cheese cookies for dessert, it serves up a unique experience in the area. The Honey Bakery sits on Bergen Avenue in McGinley Square,
which makes it easy to take an after-meal stroll in Lincoln Park.
A short walk to the northeast of Bergen Lafayette to the Village sits Third & Vine, a “cheese and wine tavern” known for its cocktails and small servings of tapas. The chef cooks with seasonal produce, ensuring a fresh and organic meal. There are three main employees, each specializing in either cheese, beverage or cooking, and all are more than welcome to answer customer questions about their respective area.
Looking toward venues with a lively night time scene, nearby music pubs such as the Zeppelin Hall Biergarten and Restaurant never fail to entertain. The atmosphere has a true beer garden feel, where customers sit at long tables in a wide, open space that incites conversation and interaction. In addition to regular live bands and DJs, the Zeppelin Hall holds regular drinking contests, game nights, Oscar night parties and other events.
