Red Bank, NJ Coffee Culture

Have you ever heard of Red Bank, NJ? It is a cute town located near the Jersey Shore (about 15 minutes from the ocean). A few years back it was voted the "hippest" town in NJ. I know, I know.. some of you are saying - wow, that can't be hard. Jersey girls are used to Jersey jokes, and I really don't mind since I lived in NYC for 8 years - I am immune.

Red Bank has 2 main java hang-outs. Of course, Starbucks is well-positioned. But across the street is the local guy, "No Joe's Cafe," which has an excellent offering of food as well as a full coffee bar. I do frequent both. Kind of depends what mood I'm in. If I'm feeling more rebellious (or hungry), it's off to No Joe's. Havenít spotted any famous people at either Ė well at least not yet. (Keep your eyes peeled if you visit - locals Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi do hang out in town occasionally).

Spring is on the way, so why not make a day trip down to Red Bank if you live in the Tri State area? There is great shopping, restaurants, and coffee Ė all right along the Navesink River! If antiques are your thing Ė Iíve been told itís a hot spot. You can also fit in a cultural gig at either the Count Basie Theater or the Two River Theater. Consider yourself invited.
