Raymond's • Ridgewood
In 1989, when Raymond Badach opened his postage-stamp-size luncheonette on Church Street, coffee was just coffee and Montclair wasn't a mecca for New Yorkers.
Over time, small changes such as adding a cappuccino machine gave way to bigger changes. Joanne Ricci came on board as manager in 1996 and partnered with Raymond as a larger version opened in 2004. In December 2012, Ray and Joanne opened another Raymond's in Ridgewood NJ. They're serving up the same fare in Bergen county and are now able to welcome lots more people (and kids!) from the big city or from down the road. The Ridgewood restaurant is located on the main drag, right across from the beautiful Van Neste Square Park. Check us out (and the view) while eating the goods we're known for--French toast and pancakes, omelettes, home-made soups, and our Wednesday night special-fried chicken!
One thing remains the same—our wish to provide great-tasting, fresh food at decent prices in an interesting atmosphere.
At Raymond’s you can always catch up on the local gossip, hang-out at the counter with a newspaper, or meet some new friends—especially if you’re the new kid in town.
