Hoboken Gourmet Company

6/20/2007 Update:

Anyone work for Cablevision? Many correspondents responded and said that this person: fdnetwork@optonline.net had replied to their inquiries to the Craigslist ad.

Ironically, the response was “Give me you number, etc, and I’ll call you back”… It’s most certainly a scam of some sort.

What’s up with that?

Got this email from Hobokengourmet.net.

Must love the internet. Why would someone post inaccurate pictures? Must be fun.

“Someone brought to my attention the posting on your site regarding The Hoboken Gourmet Company being for sale.
This in incorrect, the business is not for sale and never has been. We hope to continue to provide our customers with the quality fresh foods and service we have since 1995.

Seems like less than a week after 411 reviewed this place for the first time, they posted a for-sale ad on Craigslist! What’d I do?

Spring 2007:

Hadn’t sat down to eat at the Hoboken Gourmet ever, and this past Friday afternoon my date and I decided to enjoy the balmy weather and grab a bite to eat. She frequents the establishment often, so I trusted her judgment. She highly recommended the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich with fresh mozz and cilantro spread ($7.50). We ordered that, and a basic Tuna Melt ($7.50) and split them. Both dishes come with salty tortilla chips. Add a couple pints of iced coffee and we’re ready to go.


To sum it up:

  • The grilled veggie sandwich was incredible. The cilantro spread made it. I’d like the option to add hot jalapeños. Next time I’ll ask.
  • The Tuna sandwich was completely acceptable and worth ordering if you’re in the mood.
  • Coffee there is really flavorful and has no “burnt” taste like Starbucks.
  • Service was ok, forgot a couple things, be we were in no hurry. We found the napkins ourselves in the stand near the entrance.
  • They had run out of roast beef (was my first choice over the tuna).

There were many other things on the menu that I’d be interested in trying, and apparently they had attempted more of a dinner menu, but heard it “wasn’t doing too well”.

Anyone eat here regularly? What are your thoughts?

walked by tonight and noticed they are offering “gourmet hot dogs.” Not only do I not know wtf those are, it just reminded me how the muffins went STRAIGHT down hill (like OFF A CLIFF down hill) when that baking lady left a few years ago and I lost my appetite for that place…

Have to say that I LOVE the pancakes at this place. The coffee sucks here, but Hoboken Gourmet is still an excellent alternative to waiting 85 minutes for a table elsewhere nearby if you’re looking for a good short stack of melt-in-your-mouth pancakes that doesn’t leave you feeling like an ox when you’re done eating them.

Blueberry pancakes and banana pancakes are highly recommended. They’re yummy.

[quote comment=”31473″][quote comment=”31464″]The former owner of Mola sold it to the current owner for roughly $140k a year ago (the lease….he still pays rent….and for that stupid pornographic ice cream moose), so it must be a sham.[/quote]

Eat a dick, Colonblow. Have you even tried Emack’s?[/quote]

Really, what is going on with that place? It’s, like, a construction zone? Are they opened, are they closed? I’m confused. Coffee’s ok but you have to wonder sometimes if you’ll find pieces of sheetrock in your latte.

I did electrical contracting mainly for the food service industry. A ‘must do’ is to make sure you set a concrete payment schedule or you will surely get burned. The food service co. are famous for closing overnight and you are left holding your hand on your ass.Iwas taught by a oldtimer to build in little things or switches that you activate after the last payment or turn off if they don’t pay. Its a very tough bus. to get off the ground,i was told the magic number is 15 months to make a go of it.
