Coffee Near Me!

 Wherever you are in Marlboro Township, you are never far from an incredible cup of coffee.  I bet you never knew how many fantastic little coffee shops we have in the area.   

I may even say that these 5 coffee shops in Monmouth County would probably all make the list of Top coffee shops in the country. Pretty Daring statement on my part isn’t it? Don’t believe me? Go ahead, hop in the car and head over to the nearest one of these 5 coffee shops in Monmouth County to test them out  yourself.  I could actually use a fresh cup of coffee myself, so why not clear your schedule for the rest of the day and let’s go  “coffee shop hopping!”  

Oh, and let me also be clear.  Monmouth County has a HUGE, I mean HUGE selection of Coffee Shops.  This list is not to say that you can’t grab a delicious Cup of Joe at another local favorite Coffee House.  In fact, there were SO many amazing places to sit, sip and savor yummy coffee and treats, that there will be another video  in the near future listing another 5 Fabulous Spots to grab a cup of coffee. 

So buckle up and let’s go for a ride to visit , 5  Top Coffee Shops in the Monmouth County Area (based on the proven, purely scientific selection method of Google, Trip Advisor, Yelp and well, my opinion) Oh and these are in NO particular order!  And one last thing.  At the end of this video I’ll give you a link to download the menus from there 5 Coffee Shops all in one file, so stick around!

Oh and remember September 29th is national coffee day!  YUM YUM

1. California Cold Co. Manalapan

California Cold Co,  where their mission is simple: serve delicious, quality craft coffee and espresso that guests will want to return to day after day.  California Cold Co is a fun, artsy, urban coffee house that offers Coffee, Espresso, Craft Lattes, Tea, Acai bowls and “bites”.  Espresso infused with Fruity Pebbles cereal, chocolate, caramel and more is what makes this coffee stop a must visit.   Acai bowls blended with acai, bananas, strawberries, chocolate hemp milk and peanut butter absolutely sets them apart from other smoothie bowl shops in the area.

They have recently  added avocado toast, and oatmeal for those looking for a bit of a snack with their beverage.  

I also have to add, the staff at my local California Cold Company is fantastic.  Super friendly and they take the time to answer questions.  I was looking for a “sweet tasting” coffee without all the sugar.  I never thought I could get a cup of coffee that would be so darn good without the extra calories, but I was wrong.  

California Coffee Co., is located  520 Route 9 North, hours are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. Call 848-233-9199 for any questions or visit californiacoldco.com.

3. ROOK COFFEE

If you’re in Monmouth County and are craving a fantastic cup of coffee or a cold brew, I’m sure there is  a Rook around you somewhere. From Holmdel, to Manlapan, From Colts Neck to Red Bank, and plenty of other towns in between, this is one Coffee establishment you really don’t want to miss. Childhood friends Holly and Shawn had one concept in mind:  quality, simplicity and experience with every cup of coffee they serve, and they have been successful in providing just that.  It’s not really the place to grab a sit and chit chat, it’s known more for the grab and go coffee.   Locations offer Cold Brew, Hot coffees as well at bottles and bags of their products.  The most popular drink, at least here in Monmouth County seems to be the New Orleans Style Cold Brew.  I gave this one a try this past week, and Ummm let’s just say I’m hooked! There are also lattes and right now the Pumpkin style is out for Fall!  DELISH.

Locations in Freehold, Long Branch, Oakhurst, Wall Township, Little Silver, Red Bank, Holmdel, Colts Neck, Point Pleasant  and Manalapan.  Visit https://rookcoffee.com/ for more info oh and definitely download the app to make ordering super easy!

4. BOOSKERDOO COFFEE AND BAKING 

in Holmdel is located in Bell Works at 101 Crawfords Corner Rd, Holmdel, NJ 07733

The first batch of Booskerdoo Coffee was roasted in an oven in a one-bedroom apartment in New York City. Let’s just say from there it took off.  

Booskerdoo was officially born. In 2011 a coffee shop was opened with a roaster on the retail floor in Monmouth Beach. They always roasted to order, making sure that all coffee in the shop was never more than 7 days old. They started a wholesale program and worked to put Booskerdoo Coffee into as many hands as possible.

Now you can find locations all over in Monmouth County.  

At Booskerdoo the coffee is always hot and the scones are always fresh. This all-organic coffeehouse is the perfect place to hang out with friends or sit back and relax.  If you’re unable to go to a location  in person, Booskerdoo offers special mail-order purchases of their fabulous coffee beans. 

Offering a truly unique atmosphere, freshly roasted coffee and delicious  baked goods makes Bososkerdoo a must visit coffee shop in Monmouth County.   Locations in Asbury Park, Fair Haven, Monmouth Beach, Long Branch, Holmdel and Matawan.  

5. Quick Check

Does this familiar?  Don’t Judge me. I can tell you I think one of the best places to grab a cup of coffee, hands down,  is right at your local quick check. Yeah yeah, we have all had starbucks, and Dunkin and we have all paid a pretty penny for our caffeine addiction, but i’m going to tell you, hands down Quick Check offers a great cup of Joe, and It’s so darn cheap too!  Now, i’m not bashing Starbucks and D and D, trust me, i’ve had my fair share of coffee there too, but when I want quick and inexpensive coffee, quick chek is my go to location!

I mean, look at all these flavors and options?  

So, what do you think?  Are you ready to get into your car, or on your bike and try out one of my favorite coffee shops?  I’d love to hear from you if you do.  Please snap a photo and hashtag #monmouthcountydreamhomes if you post anywhere on social media.  I want to see if you agree that these coffee shops offer some of the very best coffee around.
