Ground Connection — Jersey City
3 2nd St, Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA
This large and sun-filled café, situated on the back side of Harborside Plaza 10, on the Jersey City waterfront close to the Exchange Place PATH stop, was clearly conceived with the plight of the local office worker in mind. They brew Joe Coffee, including espresso, several single-origin pour-over options, regular filter coffee, as well as more exotic drink choices like the chai latte. More than that, this is a full-service restaurant – they do burgers, chicken sandwiches, a Cuban, a Reuben, cheesesteak, several chopped salads, including Kale Chicken Caesar and a falafel bowl, soups, toasts and flatbread.
Ground Connection has plenty of seating, both indoor and out, but they really cater to the takeout crowd, and all ordering is at the counter, where there is usually a small scrum of suits waiting for their daily sustenance. The atmosphere is not much to speak of, but they make a nice coffee, and if you step outside and walk around the side of the café, in a moment you will be gazing across the river at the Manhattan skyline, transported by fine coffee and a beautiful view.
