Awaiting opening of "Basic" in Jersey City

  • b

Basic, a coffee/dessert place is about to open on Erie and 8th Streets in J.C.

Got a peak the other day - the counter set-up is very reminiscent of Magnolia's in NYC, and the decor is very retro. I spoke with the owner only very briefly, and they are going to have real and actual coffee (hopefully, priced more reasonable than our Starbucks and the new Cosi near Newport PATH station). Not sure what brand, though.

Hope this will be a good addition!!
