Black Rail Coffee | 800 Jackson Street

Black Rail Coffee

Entering Black Rail Coffee immediately transports you into a warm home away from home. Kids of all ages can visit the library of books, observe the light rail trains speed by and admire the colorful ceiling lights. We love that guests have the option to sit indoors or outdoors under the covered awning. 

High chairs are available, and there’s easy ramp access for strollers. 

Kid-Friendly Recommendation: Peanut butter and jelly

bwè  kafe | 1002 Washington Street + 1401 Adams Street

bwè  kafe

No matter which Hoboken bwè kafe location you visit, you’re sure to feel its ‘community meets coffee’ mantra. As a family-owned and operated business, the stores welcome patrons of all ages. We particularly love the North End location’s partnership with Little City Books.

High chairs are available, and North End has easy access for strollers.

Hidden Grounds Coffee | 79 Hudson Street + 700 Garden Street 

Hidden Grounds Coffee

Both Hidden Grounds locations have a welcoming, colorful atmospheres. The owners followed their dreams to open the stores, and their backstories were incredibly inspiring. The atmosphere makes people feel welcome and allows for parents to meet, reconnect, and relax. 

High chairs are not available, but there’s plenty of roomy outdoor seating available to park your stroller.

Kid-Friendly Recommendation Avocado toast 

Joey No Nuts Cafe | 638 Willow Avenue 

Joey No Nuts Cafe

Joey No Nuts is a mom-and-pop shop that opened after the owner’s oldest daughter’s peanut allergy inspired the idea for the store, which is a dedicated, nut-free space. The family has lived in Hoboken for over 12 years, and the welcoming vibe is reflective of the love they have for the city. We like that nut-free families can relax here.

The pull-up counter makes it incredibly easy to grab and go.

Kid-Friendly Recommendation: Fresh muffins

Green Pear Cafe | 93 Grand Street

Green Pear Cafe

Green Pear Cafe might be best known locally as ‘the spot with the beautiful tree outside the doors.’ When you venture inside, you’re greeted by a stunning collection of unique art and a super-friendly staff.  Each guest notices something different, and from our various trips, we can co-sign that there’s something new that we find each time we visit. How special is that? 

High-chairs are available.

Kid-Friendly Recommendation: Strawberry Lassi smoothie

Mojo Coffee Company | 230 Willow Avenue

Mojo Coffee Company

Founded by Hoboken coffee-lovers and natives, Mojo’s space welcomes patrons of all ages. We recently enjoyed a fun morning sitting outside in the streetlet after the staff greeted us with big smiles and good conversation.

High chairs are not available, but there’s plenty of roomy outdoor seating available to park your stroller.

Kid-Friendly Recommendation: Carrot muffins

The Hive | 1000 Park Avenue

The Hive

The first time we heard about The Hive it was from another parent raving about the cookies. And, it was not just a normal “oh, you should try the cookies…” It was more of a, “YOU HAVE TO TRY THEIR COOKIES ASAP” type endorsement. And, we sure did try the cookies  We’ve been back dozens of times since for coffee, cookies, and more. The play space is particularly exciting for kids.

Kid-Friendly Recommendation:  Cookies, of course
