Grabbing a cup of coffee means a lot of different things to a lot of people.  Whether getting coffee is a daily morning ritual, a fix for long work nights, or a quick and casual way to meet up with friends, it’s a staple in the lives of many.  New Yorkers and folks from New Jersey are known for partaking in numerous cups of the stuff throughout their busy days so we’ve created a list of some of the best shops in the area.  Coffee shops worth traveling to, ala Seastreak.


At Booskerdoo: “We believe great coffee should never sit in a warehouse… so we don’t use one.  We roast the earth’s finest beans, package them straight out of the hopper, and mail them out.  Coffee is best the first week after it’s roasted… Fresh coffee makes all the difference.”
