Cilantro’s Ambiance

The owners are already generating some buzz for Cilantro along Newark Ave. Situated on the corner of a busy intersection, passersby can’t help but notice Cilantro’s open windows and black-and-white wallpaper underneath the windows that give away what’s to come:  “all-day breakfast,” “handmade pizza,” and “delicious burgers.”

The front doors, centered in the middle of the restaurant, have two additional signs that read, “Burgerlicious!” and “There’s always time for coffee.” Inside there is plenty of seating space, keeping with the black and white theme. White chairs and spotless tables are already set for customers. In the back of the space, there are glass display units to see what’s available to order and to grab snacks and drinks.

According to the website, “Cilantro is a place where Italian food and good people meet every day, every time and with every weather. We can’t bring sunny Italy to you, but we still can bring you the joy that Italian food can offer.”

Sneak Peek at the Menu

The options are endless. The “all-day breakfast” menu includes a variety of breakfast sandwiches, omelets, crepes, and specialty items like the breakfast pizza (made with potato crust, parmesan cheese, crumbled bacon, eggs, and garnished with chopped chives), avocado toast, pancakes, and poutine. Cilantro also has readily available hot and cold coffee drinks to keep locals energized at all hours of the day.

The starters and sides consist of Irish nachos, fried cheese curds, mac and cheese with Applewood smoked bacon, soups, salads, and chili. There are also chicken tenders and traditional jumbo chicken wings, sandwiches, flatbreads, and paninis.

Cilantro’s main focus is the burgers and pizza. The burgers are all specially-made and served with house fries, house-made cilantro slaw, and half-sour pickles. The 7 Napkin Burger, Truffle mac and cheeseburger, and Albuquerque Turkey Burger all sound delicious! Veggie burgers are available.


Per the website, the pizza is unlike any other. It reads, “Our Neapolitan Fusion Pizza uses two-day fermented dough, creating a soft and yet crunchy canvas allowing our creative ingredients to come together in, dare we say, ‘A Masterpiece!’ Personal-sized pizzas are 10 inches. Large pizzas are 16 inches.”

Hoboken Girl has learned that Cilantro is “ready to open,” but is still waiting for its permit to legally be allowed to operate. The owner is hoping Cilantro can open sometime in November.
