The only thing better than a Hoboken sandwich collaboration is a sandwich collaboration for charity. The Hoboken Girl team is thrilled to announce a collaboration 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. In honor of Women’s History Month, ‘The Hoboken Girl’ will be available at the Alessio’s locations (539 Park Avenue in Hoboken + 99 Franklin Street in Jersey City) locations starting on March 1st, and will be sold through the end of the month. 100% of The Hoboken Girl’s portion of the sales will be donated to the York Street Project, a Jersey City non-profit combating poverty in the area.  Read on to learn more about the collaboration which has been in the works for months and what to expect — including more information about our samples + taste-testing event on March 8th at the Hoboken Alessio’s location.

‘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 donating 100% of our portion of the sales to the York Street Project.

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.”
