Maroon Cafe Expands in Hoboken, NJ

Opening up recently on one of the least-traveled roads in Hoboken was Maroon Cafe’s 2nd coffee shop location on Jefferson Street between 11th & 12th.

This was formerly home to Rubee’s Closet – who got flooded out after Hurricane Sandy.

Maroon first opened at 7th & Willow over five years ago.

Of all the kinds of places that could have opened on this street – a coffee shop is a fairly good bet. You have an almost guaranteed number of local customers who don’t like leaving their four-block radius – and a good cup of coffee is always on people’s minds. Whether they can sustain a profit (or future floods) remains to be seen.

Good luck with #2, Maroon!

Maroon Cafe Now Open in Hoboken

6/30/2009 Update:

Maroon quietly opened late last week. I snapped a photo of the completed interior – but the picture magically disappeared somehow (has that ever happened to you?)

Anyway – just imagine the place with chairs and cups and stuff. And for those that are “over” all the new yogurt places – they sell some ice cream by the scoop – along with chocolate bon-bons & pastries.

Have you tried it yet? Any good?


7th & Willow much improved


Taking place of the relatively dumpy (yet useful) Bill’s Candy Corner – is Maroon.

Ready to open any day now, Maroon is primarily a coffee/tea shop with an interesting bar-like layout. I believe some kind of food morsels might be offered, but I’m not sure – I spent a total of 10 seconds on this “drive-by” entry…

Their windows are tinted too dark. During the day the place always looks closed since it appears the lights are off.

I hope they can figure something out to fix that.


You must try the mochas at Maroon…they simmer 3 types of chocolate with orange peel, cinnamon and vanilla. It is the BEST relief for this cold weather!


I haven’t tried their coffee yet, but I’m a big fan of the lattes. And the folks behind the counter are really nice…skip Bux and give your bucks to the locals!


Best hot coffee in Hoboken… that dark roast flavor.

In response to the ill-informed Yes.We.Can’s latest salvo: Yes.We.Can you fancy yourself some advanced creature when in fact you are just another elitist snob who believes everything the Zimmer cult leaders tell you about people outside of their circle. You are lucky 411 even continues to allow you here at all after the lies you have told about him and his site. The “bullies” are those who break the post rules, seek to dominate and destroy the discourse here with multiple screen names and then cry foul when 411 finds them out and bans them for breaking the rules. Then those same people go running to other sites lying about what happened to them here and claiming they know the true identities of posters here. Even when they are proven wrong and openly declared liars (even by newspaper columnists who mock them for their arrogance) people like you who are otherwise intelligent continue to believe their bull. For instance, you refer to me as a “clever gal” when I am and always have been a man. This stems from the lies told by the Zimmer liars about my true identity. These same Zimmer liars have even convinced Dawn of their lies. Dawn herself sent Beth Mason a letter during the runoff campaign stating that she “knew for a fact that (411 poster name) was (a real person’s name)” and proceeded to threaten legal action if Mason didn’t get that person to stop! The problem? The person Zimmer “knew for a… Read more »
