Tom’s Diner – Ledgewood, NJ

This old Silk City was used as a location for Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” music video. It now sits empty, in poor condition.

Great freestanding neon

Kitchen addition is narrower than the diner.

My girlfriend, Anna and me in front of the diner.

Peeling Paint. Torn Sign.


The specials are still displayed.

Puddles of water, algae and mold

    • me too
      I sat in every booth and every stool and connie took care of me
      my daughter would go with my dad and he would say:Lets sit at the bar”

  1. Great place! My husband and I ate there many times when we moved here in 1985! My husband remembers eating there with his uncle Pete in 1955. This place is soooo worth saving!!! Food was great!

    • Yes very well. Her aunt was my children’s baby sitter for a while. There was also another waitress Hispanic lady but can’t remember her name.Anyone remember the sign over the grill referring to Tom, The order mistaker.

  2. There are red bows in every window and on the door. The sign has been painted white. Wonder who did this and if they are going to revive the diner. (Jan. 13, 2016)
