I lived in Collingswood, New Jersey for about four years, and even though I’m no longer a resident, I haven’t gone very far. I still hop on the Patco from Philadelphia and head over to this amazing town for dinner. Within walking distance of the Patco station, all along Haddon Avenue, you’ll find some of the best restaurants, shops, and boutiques.
Downtown Collingswood has that small-town feel, with big-city flavor, it’s truly one of South Jersey’s greatest restaurant destinations. If you haven’t checked out the restaurant scene here, you’re missing out. This town has it all, middle eastern cuisine, brunch restaurants, hibachi, Thai food, and an overwhelming amount of Italian restaurants (a common joke among people familiar with the area). Not to mention – most of these restaurants are BYOB, a huge plus in my opinion.

Hearthside was opened in 2017 by owners Dominic Piperno and wife Lindsay. This corner restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Collingswood, New Jersey, in my opinion. It’s definitely a more upscale experience, great for a date night or for a special event. You can even reserve the chef’s table which can accommodate a larger party.
With an open kitchen, you’ll get to experience how the food is prepped. Everything is cooked in the hearth in the restaurant (hence the name). Seats are limited, but you can reserve a spot right at the hearth for a unique experience.

Next up, Sagami Japanese Restaurant has to be my number one destination for sushi as well as traditional Japanese cuisine whenever I’m in New Jersey.
The wood interior and warm atmosphere of Sagami make the entire place feel as though it was plucked from the streets of Tokyo and gently placed here in Collingswood. I like to head here for dinner, mostly, but they serve a fantastic lunch menu that I love to try when I’ve got some time in the middle of the day.

Depending on where you live, it can be rare to find a great Lebanese restaurant, so whenever I’m in the mood for some incredible shawarma, I always make the trip over to Li Beirut in Collingswood, New Jersey because it’s just a stone’s throw from Cherry Hill.
Li Beirut is one of my absolute favorite Collingswood restaurants to go to when I want to immerse myself in a foreign culture. Their “Taste of Lebanon” menu option is the one to pick if you want to take a culinary tour of Lebanon right here in New Jersey.

It’s a no-brainer that The Pop Shop would end up on our best restaurants list. It is such a great place to eat in Collingswood, especially if you have young children.
This place is great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner alike inside a retro, 50s-themed diner full of Americana culture and delicious food.
The Kitchen Consigliere
700 Haddon Ave, Collingswood, NJ 08108
Phone: (856) 854-2156
The Kitchen Consigliere is another one of my favorite Haddon Avenue restaurants in Collingswood, New Jersey because of its refined Italian ristorante ambiance and delectable cuisine that reminds me of my Italian grandmother’s cooking.
You’ll find all the classic Italian cuisine you could ever want here at The Kitchen Consigliere and it all tastes homemade. I absolutely love their veal Milanese and their eggplant parmesan, but I rarely ever eat there without having some of their delicious pasta to start with.

Il Fiore is such a nice place to eat dinner in Collingswood that’s not far from Cherry Hill, and if you have a nice bottle of wine that you’ve been saving for a delicious meal, then you’ll definitely want to bring it with you to the restaurant since there is a BYOB option here.
Probably the best thing about Il Fiore, I think, is their massive selection of pasta. You can get gnocchi, fettuccine, penne, linguine, and so many more, making this place a pasta-lover’s dream.

Up next, we have our first Mexican grill on the list called The Tortilla Press, easily one of my top dining destinations in Collingswood, New Jersey for unique burritos and amazing Tex-Mex food.
The thing I love the most about The Tortilla Press is that one of the burritos you can order weighs in at a whopping 5 pounds, so you better make sure you come in on an empty stomach if you plan to take on that monster.
