“There’s been a lot of exciting development happening in Hoboken’s north end,” bwé kafe owner Dale Mori-Ryan recently commented. “We were fortunate enough to be a part of multiple pop-ups with Hudson Table and we became more aware of the growth and excitement in this area. We wanted to participate in the growth with a more permanent location and Edge Adams was the ideal address.”
“We love being surrounded by so many other spaces that are supporting the arts,” she says. “Hoboken’s only movie theater is directly across from us and the Mile Square Theatre is steps away.”
The coffee shop joins trailblazer Carpe Diem Bar & Restaurant, which is among the longest running establishments north of the viaduct, as well as Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, Gravity Vault and a number of other businesses that call that have found a passionate customer base in this ever-evolving area of town.
Little City Books seem pretty excited to join bwè in that space, hoping to take a page from their successful downtown Hoboken shop (100 Bloomfield Street) and bring it to the increasingly active northern edge of town.
“First books sold were Heart of Darkness and Doctor Zhivago,” they said in their recent newsletter. “What do you think that means???”
We think it means that venturing into new territories can be daunting… but also epic.
