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!

mooshu, it happens to all of us. I just tried to post a long response to Yes.We.Can and it all disappeared. I’m hoping it shows up later. This is the nature of technology. It happens.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
