Empire Coffee & Tea

Coffee so good it can influence real estate? Maybe.

Recently voted Best Coffee in New Jersey, this coffee is no secret to residents of the Garden State. Residents of the Empire State get their buzz on at the original NYC location. What makes Empire coffee so unique? Well, for one thing, they've mastered the art of being both really good and really reasonably priced. A rare blend in the coffee world (think the OPPOSITE of Starbucks). But mostly, it's all about the tasty blends & flavors, and the perfection of the roasting..

If you think you might want to try Empire Coffee, but don't live in Hoboken or NYC, check them out here:

So, can a coffee shop really influence real estate? Well, I don't know for sure. But, I do know that I've gone to Empire Coffee & Tea for a daily cup of joe almost every single day (sometimes twice a day) for most of the 9 years that I've lived in Hoboken. And the 3 times during those years that I found myself looking for a place to live, did I factor in a potential pad's proximity to the best coffee in NJ? You bet! And I betcha I'm not the only one ;)


  1. Sipping on a cup of Peppermint Patty as I wrote this. Great time of year for Empire Coffee with all of the Holiday Flavors (The Egg Nog really tastes like Egg Nog). Yum!!!

  2. Be sure to ask for soy milk (cow's milk is just gross) And while you're at it, ask them to stop charging EXTRA for soy milk (b/c that's just lame). :)
