With a direct line to NYC on the train, short commute to Newark Airport and easy accessibility to major highways, Summit's vibrant downtown gives residents the feel of a small city but the security of an intimate town. The 22,323 residents (US Census 2017) that call Summit home, find that the school district, the proximity to NY and strong community spirit make Summit an incredible town to live.

Notable Places and Landmarks:

  • Summit Diner: oldest operating diner in the state with the best cup of coffee around
  • Natales Bakery: Home of the Philly Fluff Cake
  • Debarry House: (local inn)
  • YMCA/Connection/Youth Sports: amazing recreational programs

Best Restaurants in Summit:

  • Roots Steakhouse: upbeat vibe with a great bar and great martini
  • Summit House Restaurant: newer establishment with large bar.
  • Huntley Tavern: outdoor porch, fabulous calamari frise salad paired with a pomegranate martini
  • The Elks Club: private (very casual) club in a downtown brownstone with rooftop bar and deck (spring 2020)
  • Fiorino: fabulous retro-Manhattan feel, full service bar with delicious Italian food.
  • Fin: BYOB light and airy dining, delicious seafood and raw bar... great chowder.

What we love about Summit's downtown is the notable stores (West Elm, Serena and Lily, Lululemon, Blue Mercury) as well as some small business favorites (Mundo, Willow Street, Home Again Design, John Hyatt).
