Gregorys Coffee — Exchange Place Jersey City
10 Exchange Pl, Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA
Founded in 2006 by Gregory Zamfotis, the Gregorys Coffee chain has been storming Manhattan (and Brooklyn, and Jersey City, and now DC) for several years, and there are currently more than two dozen locations in the NYC area. They have managed to create a somewhat remarkable system for rolling out new locations without sacrificing quality, and now with a huge roastery in Long Island City, the ubiquitous Gregorys logo – coffee cups where Gregory's eyeglasses should be – may be unstoppable.
They are known for their espresso, AeroPress coffee, and delicious cold brew, as well as a full menu that includes smoothies, cold pressed juices, parfaits, pastries, and sandwiches. There is an attention to detail, quality, and presentation throughout the chain that is undeniable, and while Gregorys cafes have a bit of a cookie-cutter style, this location is hard to beat. Located just around the corner from the Exchange Place PATH station (running to Manhattan, and Newark in the other direction), and on the edge of J Owen Grundy park along the Hudson Riverfront, Gregorys looks out at a breathtaking view of lower Manhattan. It also sits just beside the stunning Katyń Memorial statue by sculptor Andrzej Pitynski. Coffee with a view!
