Top 5 Favorite Hoboken Brunch Spots?


Hoboken411 reader Melanie was curious about where area residents like to chow down for weekend brunches, and why!


Looking for Brunch Recommendations

“So, I go out to brunch a lot, but usually go to old, casual standbys like Legal Beans, Four L’s, Hoboken Gourmet, etc. But what could I suggest to some “foodies” that want to drink with their brunch? What’s the best brunch in Hoboken and why?”

I figured I’d break it down into five miscellaneous categories (you can repeat answers, if necessary):

  1. What is your “local” brunch spot? (most frequented, usual standby)
  2. What is your favorite tasting brunch? (regardless of cost)
  3. What brunch is the best value? (cheapest or best bang for buck, most food, etc.)
  4. Who makes the best drinks at Brunch? (quality and/or quantity i.e., unlimited, etc.)
  5. And what location has the best ambiance? (service, decor, comfort)

Bonus Questions:

  • Noteworthy NON-Hoboken Brunch spots nearby? Easily accessible?
  • Do you travel outside of your four-block radius ever?
  • Lastly – what places might you be taking a “time out” from until they improve?

Best brunch by far is at 1 Republik-amazing croissant french toast and $ 3 mimosas and bloody marys-make sure to get there early tho because usually a wait

Anyone know what’s going on with Mile Square? I was walking home from work on Friday evening. I saw that Mile Square now just says The Square. The outside looks different. It looks like it’s being painted etc.

My Hoboken favorites are Elysian and Mikie Squared but neither blow me away. I used to live in JC and really miss the restaurants (brunch, dinner, and takeout) over there. Amelia’s, Skinner’s Loft, Light House Tavern, LITM, and best of all Taqueria!

Not that I want this restaurant to become even more crowded by promoting them….

But if you’ve never had the huevos rancheros and Cuban coffee at La Isla on a Sunday, you simply have no right to comment on brunch comparisons in Hoboken!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
