I have been to HGC several times over the past year, with friends and with my kids. I have written in my previous reviews that it is important for me to have proper expectations when I choose to spend time and money, and I am very comfortable in a variety of places - from rustic to high luxury. Hoboken Gourmet Company is a little gem amidst the road construction mayhem and commercialized eateries that have overtaken the square mile of the planet, called Hoboken...
Nestled in the heart of the town, and steps away from the pier, the cafe/restaurant is a lovely spot for a late morning respite. The atmosphere is neither glamorous nor pretentious, but comfortable and cozy - fits in perfectly with the brick townhouses of the area. The service if friendly and fast, coffee is good, and the muffins are delicious! Though, since I am very conscientious about sweets, I have been able to make special requests to fit my diet every time, and have had zero issues with that little quirk. My favorite is the sliced turkey with poached eggs and avocado -- it might sound boring, but I enjoy the dish every time without feeling guilty or being judged for ordering off the menu.
There is also free WiFi, which is nice to rely on when sitting solo.
