Located in Hamilton Park area. Real good for coffee, baked goods and sandwiches. Mostly locals go here.

If you are looking for a good coffee this is the place to go! They have very good salads and sandwiches. It's in the corner of Erie St. and 8th in Downtown Jersey City. Around the corner of Hamilton Park. The music is great. It's...cozy and not expensive. Fast service and great food. They have free wireless service and an ATM machine. I love the Bean Burrito!!More

Great coffee shop with good food. Not a big fan of the pastries. Definitely hit or miss. It's got great ambiance and free internet. Kid friendly, especially in the afternoons and on the weekends. Unfortunately, its gotten more expensive and service can be slow. Music...has been eclectic at times – in a bad way. Celine Dion followed by techno…..More
