Schnackenberg’s Brightens uptown neighborhood in Hoboken, NJ

After much anticipation from nearby residents, Schackenberg’s Luncheonette is almost ready to re-open under the leadership of Eugene Flynn (of Amanda’s & Elysian Cafe fame.)

The updated exterior with new, brighter color scheme certainly adds vibrancy to this area. Excellent!

Schnackenberg’s “The Schnack is Back” in Hoboken


Seems like the renovation over at Schnackeberg’s is taking a bit longer than anticipated. Originally supposed to re-open “Spring 2013,” it’s been revised to “Fall 2013.”

Plus they came up with a catch-phrase to keep passerby interested: “The Schnack is Back.”

9/27/2012 Update:

While Schnackenberg’s Luncheonette at 1110 Washington Street is one of the oldest establishments in Hoboken – the last few years have been a bit odd. They certainly had a modest following of regulars, for both their diner-style food, as well as the holiday and religious chocolates and candies they made. But the seemingly bizarre lack of clarity (and proper lighting) – the average Hoboken resident could barely tell if they were open or closed. Just one of those things, I guess. No complaints on this end, just strange!

But the owners are done with the day to day now (closed since Labor Day), and they’ve leased the space to Eugene Flynn (Amanda’s and Elysian Cafe) – and are in the process of renovating the joint. My hope is that we’ll see a nice re-vitalized old-school diner – with up to date facilities while maintaining the character of an establishment open since 1931.

Ever since the midtown diner in Hoboken went away, there has been a serious need for another great sit-down greasy spoon to get a coffee, grab a quick bite and mingle with locals. Hopefully, when Schnackenberg’s re-opens in Spring 2013 – it will fill the void nicely.

Description: Under new ownership. Reopening Spring 2013. Good food at very low prices. Est. 1931BC. Antique décor takes you to another age (and dimension).
