Directions: Located at 123 Newark Avenue, we're just across the street from the Grove Street PATH station. Take the PATH to the Grove Street station; exit towards Grove Street (rather than than Columbus). Newark Ave. dead-ends at Grove St., so all you have to do is walk up Newark; we're the second big building on the left. Google Maps

For a Jersey City starter list, we recommend: the Roman Nose (family-recipe Italian! Do not skip the sour cream cookies). LITM (if you're looking for a bar with an artistic flair.) Skinner's Loft (both for their bar and their rooftop dining). Barcade (beer and video games!). Port-o (delicious tapas and a beautiful outdoor space). Two Boots (pizza pizza pizza! And now wine and beer). The Little Sandwich Shop (at which you are likely to run into one of our staff on any given day).

Press & Praise:

Sasha, Yelp, July 2014: "Everyone's really friendly willing to answer any questions you may have-- so grab a cold brew and actually buy a book"
