Clinton Street Cafe – Doomed
Clinton Cafe closes, Metropolitan nail salon might expand
Had to get this update off my list…
Does anyone who lives more than a half a block away from 13th & Clinton Streets remember the Clinton Street Cafe? Didn’t think so.
This little coffee shop on 13th nestled between Clinton and Grand opened up two years ago – and couldn’t quite cut it. With the empty lot across the street, and lack of inspiring offerings, they decided it to call it quits.
The Metropolitan Nail Salon next door looks like they’re expanding, although the owner wasn’t too forthcoming about what their exact plans were or when.
With all the nail salons in Hoboken, you’d think we had the prettiest people in the world!
Newest Hoboken Coffee Shop opens doors
Late last week, John Kim, the owner of Clinton Street Cafe (13th and Clinton) became open for business.
Starting out rather slow, John says he plans for the Clinton Street Cafe “to have the highest quality products at the best prices.” So far, he features Allegro coffee and tea (which is also available at Whole Foods), bakery products from NYC’s Amy’s Bread, and salads from Anthony Davids right here in Hoboken. Some panini sandwiches and other items will also be on the menu when he finalizes it next month.
If you’re looking for a place off the beaten path to have a quiet cup of coffee, enjoy some outdoor seating – and generally away from the riff-raff on Washington Street, Clinton Street Cafe might be a good option for you. Current hours are 7am – 8pm, seven days a week.
A local coffee shop!
We have another attempt to launch a successful business at 356 13th Street (home of the previously doomed Basic Cafe / Metro Deli and Ganache before that). And while the spot is located on Thirteenth Street, they’re naming it “Clinton Street Cafe.”
From the obvious looks of the logo, it’s going to be a coffee shop / cafe – that will likely serve what most other shops sell (coffee, espresso, lattes, etc.) Stay tuned for further updates!
