• Hoboken Travels: Another Man’s Treasure Vintage Shop & the Hamilton Inn {Jersey City}

    Written by:

    It’s no secret we love Jersey City, and sometimes a little trip to JC is a nice refreshing way to have a little adventure and get out of the Hoboken bubble {as wonderful as it may be}. Recently, I went to two note-worthy Jersey City hot spots and needed to share about them because I just can’t keep a secret!

    Another Man’s Treasure Vintage: {195 Montgomery Street – NEW Location!}

    On Facebook, this vintage shop seems like it’s huge vintage warehouse — maybe just due to the sheer amount of “likes” it has, topping over 2500 — but alas, it’s very small. Size, however, doesn’t affect the quality, in this case. AMT has actually been included in both USA Today and Elle.com’s best places to shop vintage in AMERICA, and Refinery 29 has included it as one of the top 25 reasons to move to NJ!

    When we entered the shop, the color coordination and neat displays really made me happy {I love a good thrift/vintage store visit, but sometimes disorganization can make me want to get out of there STAT}. Not the case here:

    Ahh, rainbow color coordination. Loving it.

    In the shop, there were a variety of recognizable vintage labels, such as Roberto Cavalli, Chloé, Gianfranco Ferre, Linda Rossbach, Bernard Perris, and more…all carefully curated and displayed. The store houses pieces from the Victorian age through the 1990s, and has great variety for such a small shop. What stuck out the most, however was this little rack of sparkles and sequins:

    Heaven.

     The store also had a large boot selection very aptly displayed {they also had a lot of cowboy boots, too!}:

    And jewelry, of course.

    The red full-finger ring front and center almost came home with me. Prices were reasonable, and there were a variety of jewels from different eras which made perusing the jewelry display fun. You never know what you’ll find! Such a wonderful boutique, and definitely worth a quick visit to JC.

    The Hamilton Inn: {708 Jersey Ave}

    If you’re hungry after your shopping trip, an amazing brunch {and dinner} spot in Jersey City is The Hamilton Inn. We stumbled upon this joint during a Saturday and decided to wait at the bar for a table {it’s usually a bit of a wait, but not unbearable!}.

    The place’s decor is adorable and slightly rustic, with a cozy charm that resembles Turtle Club or the Clinton Social in Hoboken mixed with a Soho brunch vibeI loved it.

    On the menu were bacon bloody marys so of course we had to true. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT — highly recommend as your hair of the dog choice. Mimosas were very good as well {and $4, and they also offer the “World’s Best Brunch Cocktail” which is just St. Germain added to your mimosa for an extra $5…but we’ll let that slide {because St. Germain makes everything better!}.

    On to the most important part — the food! The brunch/lunch menu is what you see above, and they range from salads to sandwiches to poached eggs to french toast and some yummy sides — a great range. We opted for eggs — my brunch date had poached benedict and I opted for the Avocado Toast: 2 poached eggs, a toasted English muffin, pickled onions, jalapeno, and lime. It came on top of a salad, which was nice {but my date opted for the potatoes version}. Both meals were delicious.

    Sneak peek of my Avocado Toast. MMMMMMMmmmm.

    The service was quick {but not too quick} even though they had a wait at the door, and I really thought that the food was very tasty. Next time we are trying the Brioche French Toast and the Pierogies! It appears they have specials every day of the week, and they also have an open kitchen late night style:

    We left Jersey City feeling full and happy. I cannot wait to return soon! 

    Have you been to the Hamilton Inn or ATM vintage? What did you think?
    Where should HG Travels go next?

    *Clinton Social is now closed.

    • We love the Hamilton Inn and Another Man’s Treasure. The Hamilton Inn is such an important part of our neighborhood in Hamilton Park. And our new building, Charles & Co. will be the new home of Another Man’s Treasure very soon!
