    I just discovered this place on my way to work. Love it. There is a british girl behind the counter. Even better. Anyone know if she owns it?

    The woman i work with is also british and lives in Hoboken. Do a lot of Brits residing here or just coincidence?

    anyway—good spot

    Yes, I love the coffee there.

    They have very nice people working there.

    It is owned by an American woman, I think. Her name is Abby (Abbey?) Rivers and is a local musician. There is also an Empire in the city.

    Excellent coffee for years. They were on Washington before the mass exodus of local businesses in search of reasonable rents.

    My girlfriend went in here and almost stayed all night. If you like coffee, tea and their accessories, you’ll love it here. The people are very nice.

    Anyone recommend a nice place to grab a cup of coffee and sit without too much noise. Tired of the Starbucks scene.

    Go to Empire. Love this place and the woman behind the counter on the weekends is awesome, her name is Strawberry. The aroma of the coffee beans is enough for me to keep on going. So good!!

    Thanks for the comment. Was looking for a nice place to sip some coffee or tea with a friend. This looks like the place.

    Legal Beans is really nice (Newark/Garden), particularly during the weekdays because it’s never crowded then and you can talk without noise. They have nice music going, free wifi, friendly service (albiet spotty and dimwitted at times), big windows, lots of lights, lots of seating (Empire doesn’t), good food (breakfast too), and really beautiful coffee.

    not sure what’s going on with this place, but it seems to have gone downhill a bit. the bulk coffee is still great, but the past two times i’ve gone, the individual drinks were terrible. the iced moroccan mint i got last saturday tasted like it’d gone bad, and the iced chai i got before that tasted like watery milk and very little chai.

    i let the person behind the counter know and they were happy to remedy the problem, but yeah, bad drinks twice in a row now. i’m surprised as i’ve loved the place for years…hoping they can get it together soon.

      I love Empire to death, but then, I don’t usually buy their sissy drinks.

        LOL!

        Ganache makes the best soy latte in town, I think. Rich, strong and yummy.

        I’m devoted to Empire, though, because of their grinds. I often pick a pound or so of the stuff and make my own coffee at home.

    There was a grear saloon there for a long time, a ball and a beer joint and that was a mixed drink

    hmm, didn’t realize iced tea was a sissy drink.

    where is ganache?? soy latte sounds yummy…

    • pawzclawz says:

      Ganache is by The Hudson Tea Building. I love Empire. I go there every night on my way home. I live uptown. I go to Starbucks and Ganache when I don’t have reason to go downtown etc. I love the iced passion tea unsweetened from Starbucks. I always get iced decaf with skim milk and a sugar-free syrup shot from Ganache.

    Christmas gift central for the under $75 one-size fits all crowd. Amazing array of gift baskets, mugs, high-end coffee. Just stop by, problem solved.

    I love the uncle paulie’s coffee and truck stop paradise blend, Empire has it all, hence why I am awake!!

    • midtownauthentic says:

      Awesome centralized spot in Hoboken, accessible from all points of town. Great place during warmer weather to sit outside and drink a joe and relax too!!
