Food Scene

This tiny little bakery in the Bergen Hill section also has savory lunch items. The owners from Uzbekistan and make wonderful dishes like pilaf and samosas. Must try the cottage cheese cookies – they sound strange, but they are good!

Sightseeing

If it is possible to get inside, see if you can. It is a beautiful old theater saved by a neighborhood group. On some weekends old films are shown there for $8 with soda and popcorn available for purchase at reasonable prices. The organ is one of the 2 remaining old organs in New Jersey and they bring someone in to play before the films open.
