If you didn’t get a chance to taste test The Hoboken Girl Breakfast Sandwich yet, you’re in luck —  not only did our collaboration in March sell almost 2,000 sandwiches in a month (and we donated our portion to York Street Project for Women’s History Month), BUT ALSO — it’s now officially on the menu permanently as of early April! The Hoboken Girl team collaborated with Alessio’s Cafe for the debut of our very own Hoboken Girl Breakfast Sandwich — all to highlight a local non-profit that does amazing work in the Hudson County Community.

By popular demand, it will now be indefinitely on the menu at all Alessio’s locations (539 Park Avenue in Hoboken + 99 Franklin Street in Jersey City for now — but coming soon to uptown Hoboken). We’ll still be donating some of The Hoboken Girl’s portion of the sales to the York Street Project, a Jersey City non-profit combating poverty in the area, and every quarter, we’ll announce a new non-profit to donate our sales to.  Read on to learn more about The Hoboken Girl x Alessio’s Sandwich collaboration which took months to develop, as well as what’s to come for our sandwich for a cause, and of course, where and how to enjoy it.

The April Update

After selling almost 2,000 sandwiches in 30 days, it’s been excitedly decided that our collaboration is going to continue — and will continue to give back to local non-profits, too. Every quarter, we’ll be switching the non-profit we’re giving back to for a portion of the sandwich, in hopes to raise awareness for local non-profits as we go. This month of March, we’re donating $1 per sandwich, which means York Street Project is being donated $1,953.

The Collaboration

This collaboration took months to come to fruition, and  the entire Hoboken Girl team worked with Alessio’s on the ingredients, taste-testing multiple versions of sandwiches before picking our favorite — and we can confirm that it’s delicious (and gluten-free, if you want it to be!). 

Where to get it:

Zap Fitness
  • 539 Park Avenue, Hoboken, New Jersey
  • 99 Franklin Street, Jersey City Heights, New Jersey
  • You can also order online for delivery or pickup!

*Breakfast is served from 7AM-3PM

The sandwich was only supposed to be available at both Alessio’s locations for the month of March, where The Hoboken Girl team donated our portion to York Street Project. But due to popular demand, we are bringing it to the menu FULL-TIME!

‘The Hoboken Girl’ breakfast sandwich consists of:

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Caramelized onions
  • Avocado
  • Homemade crispy hashbrowns (gluten-free*)
  • Jalapeno + avocado aioli

This can be served on sourdough bread or a wrap.

The bread or wrap can be substituted to be gluten-free*

There are also dairy-free options available (no cheese).

The sandwich as stands is vegetarian.

*Not confirmed as 100% Celiac-certified, so if Celiac, proceed with caution.

Alessio’s also recommends adding breakfast sausage or bacon to the sandwich.

We will be continuing to donating a portion of the sales to the York Street Project through May, and every quarter, we’ll pick a new non-profit to donate to for the next three months.

About Alessio’s

Alessio’s, which has a location at 539 Park Avenue in Hoboken and 99 Franklin Street in Jersey City, is an Italian pizzeria and cafe that serves up everything from coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries to pizza, paninis, and gelato. Owner Luca Infantino was born and raised in Italy and moved to the United States in 2011. After living in Weehawken, Luca fell in love with Hoboken and paved his way in the fashion industry before taking the jump into food service and opening up the Hoboken location in 2020. The Jersey City location opened this past summer, and Luca shared with us that the cafe’s next project will be opening a location in Hoboken’s Northwest Resiliency Park this spring. Alessio’s also has two kiosks in Pier A Park during the summer months.

Alessio’s — named after Luca’s son — has quickly become a staple in the Mile Square and is known for its authentic Italian products and the real feel of an Italian cafe. The spot prides itself on the quality of its food, customer service, and being involved in the community. “We are proud to be a “community-based” business, a safe place for children, students, families. Alessio’s always supports charity requests, events sponsorship, etc,” Luca shared, “Partnering up with The Hoboken Girl has been a dream come true.”

York Street Project is a non-profit 501(c)3 based in Jersey City whose mission is to build programs that help women and their families who may be experiencing different barriers such as homelessness, lack of child care, and who are in need of services and social work support. The non-profit has a number of different programs for its guests that are designed to provide the life skills and resources needed for independent living — including two on-site locations as well as apartments within the community. Over 70% of guests who complete programs with YSP are living on their own and doing very well.

Volunteer options and an Amazon wishlist can be found on the organization’s website. We will also be donating $1953 from the sales of the sandwich for the month of March to York Street Project, with more to come. So keep enjoying your sammies, for a cause!
