Along with the best coffee in Bergen county, this Maywood shop sells delicious hot cocoa and dog treats whose proceeds benefit Basset Hound rescue groups and other charities.
This Lambertville shop sells ice cream to cool you down after your steamy coffee. The facility also serves as an art gallery, so you can enjoy a tasty drink and beautiful paintings at the same time!
This quirky West Windsor shop has a War of the Worlds theme. New Jersey is the perfect place for a shop like this, since Orson Welles’ tale claims that aliens have landed in the state.
This Surf City shop has fantastic coffee and delicious desserts like peanut butter pie! Located right on the sand, this cafe gives visitors free WiFi, making it the perfect place for a break from the beach.
This Red Bank shop has a – you guessed it – cowboy theme. Despite the old-fashioned atmosphere, it offers fair trade and organic coffee for conscious consumers. You also have the option to order via text message to avoid waiting in line (It’s a pretty popular location!).
This Hoboken shop’s name means “drink coffee” in Haitian Creole. The cafe even has snacks free from animal products for vegan caffeinators!
This Flemington shop is located in a former pottery factory, giving it a unique atmosphere. And, needless to say, it has great coffee.
This Cape May shop has fantastic coffee and drinks, but its biggest draw may be its quick WiFi connection.

This is the perfect hangout for college students or professional writers and researchers who need to finish a paper last-minute
This Collingswood shop serves a variety of purposes. From a coffee and dessert bar to a record seller to a trendy cafe to a gift gallery to a nightspot, this place does it all.
