Yes, It Turns Out That Bordentown, NJ’s Town & Country Diner Has Their Own Cinnamon & Cheese Bread
Earlier in the week, I broke the sad news to you that Mastoris Diner and Restaurant on Route 130 in Bordentown had closed its doors for good, devastating long-time customers, filled with a lifetime of memories of the iconic business.
So, now what? The thought of never indulging in cinnamon or cheese bread again was downright depressing. But, as I was chatting on Facebook with PST listeners about the sudden closing of Mastoris, several people told me not to worry, I could still get that mouth-watering bread right across the street at Town & Country Diner.
What?!? I can still get the famous Mastoris bread? I had to investigate.
I called Town & Country Diner, located at Route 130 North & Route 206, and had the pleasure of chatting with Nuray Pamuk, the manager of Town & Country. She told me that it's her family's business and they've owned it for almost 3 years.
I got right to the point and asked if they served Mastoris cinnamon and cheese bread:
She said they DO serve their own version of the bread. It's not the same recipe as the famous Mastoris bread, but she said it's just as good.
See...it looks just like it.
Yeeesss. I can't wait to try it.
Pamuk also let me know that Town & Country has a bakery on-premises so everything is baked right there, and it is made fresh daily. I'm sure she won't be able to keep up with the cinnamon and cheese bread demand now.
Although Town & Country Diner has NO AFFILIATION with Mastoris Diner & Restaurant, Pamuk does have a soft spot for the once-popular spot. Nuray was a waitress there for 13 years, starting in 2000, and even met her husband Michael there, who worked there for 20 years. Awwww.
The Pamuk family owns another diner, the Pandora Diner, in Springfield, with Saban Pamuk, Nuray's brother, taking the lead there.
Phew, what a relief to know I can still get cinnamon and cheese bread in the area. My son will be happy to hear that we can continue the tradition of getting it for him on his birthday each year.
Town & Country Diner is located at 177 Route 130 North in Bordentown.
