• The Best Spots for Avocado Toast {in Jersey City}

    If there’s anything that anyone can agree on — no matter where you live — it’s that avocado toast rules. Our avocado toast roundup for Hoboken has been such a hit, that we had to do a version for Jersey City, too. In case your lips haven’t met this healthy concoction yet, here’s an accurate description: Avocado Toast = smashed avocado, toast, + anything else your heart desires. And it just doesn’t just taste good. It’s filled with iron, potassium, vitamin K, and so many other nutrients, AND it’s a fruit that’s filled with GOOD fats. Let’s dive in..
