Jersey City/Hoboken Food Guide~ The Must Hit Spots

For those that missed it, I’m in a long distance, college relationship. My boyfriend and I live only a few minutes down the street at home, but he spends the majority of September-May at college in Jersey City, New Jersey. What that essentially means is that I have two homes: my house and his college apartment. So, this gives me just one more reason to explore another fun town {one of my fave things to do}. I love finding cute cafes and casual date spots, taking in the breathtaking views of the NYC skyline, hunting down all the best smoothie bowl and dessert spots, and so much more. Due to my frequent travels by train to Jersey City, I decided to throw together a food guide to all things Jersey City and Hoboken. Let me tell you, I’ve done a lot of exploring over the last three years, and this area gets better and better every time: it has SO MUCH to offer. In this guide you’ll find my must visit spots for coffee shops, pizza, trendy cafes, date nights, desserts, smoothie bowls, vegan food, and so much more! At the end, I highlight my top picks and a little bit about why I love them.
