Best Coffee in Newark, NJ Penn Station?

Desidero Nov 24, 2010 08:22 AM

What's the best option for coffee inside Newark's Penn Station? I need my fix before I hop on a train.

Thanks in advance.

    The Hilton has Starbucks but who has time for that? It doesn't open until 6:30.

    Also, McDonald's, Seattle Coffee Roasters, and Dunkin Donuts.

      There is a small walk up in Penn Station, (near the east entrance) that has great coffee and a nice Brioche. Certainly not as pricey as Starbucks.

        Thanks for your input. Is this walk-up a stand, a restaurant, a deli? Do you know its name?

        Thanks again.

          If I'm not mistaken, Applecheeks is referring to a little stand built into a recess in the wall (if I remember correctly) on the ground floor underneath track 1. I don't know its name, if it even has one. If you are facing away from Triponi (the pizza place) and facing towards the bookstore, then look to the right of the bookstore. You will see a hallway (which goes roughly north-northeast, essentially running underneath track 1, I think). The stand is in this hallway, on the right. It's not far from the Raymond Plaza East entrance (not to be confused with Raymond Plaza West or Raymond Blvd.).

          Or at least that's the only place where I've ever noticed any brioche. It always looks really good but I haven't tried it.

            Their brioche is a much much better choice than the dried out, flavorless and overpriced crap they sell at Zaro's.
