• The Turquoise Cup: Hoboken’s Newest Coffee {+ Pottery} Shop

    Take a walk along Hoboken’s West Side and you’ll notice it is quickly becoming Hoboken’s “best side” in terms of coffee. Located at 720 Monroe Street on the 1st level {next to Shaka Bowl} of the Monroe Center, The Turquoise Cup is the perfect marriage of a modern coffee shop and a grown-up version of the pottery studio where you threw all your best elementary school birthday parties. We had the chance to stop by The Turquoise Cup earlier this week and gathered all the inside information you need to know before their grand opening this Saturday, October 14th.

    The Space

    With unique aesthetics such as a coffee-bean tabletop, pottery-lined shelves, and a paint bar organized in a rainbow, you may find it hard to focus on work inside The Turquoise Cup. Nevertheless the shop boasts ample seating, outlets, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Regular hours will be from 6AM to 6PM Monday-Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday with extended Friday hours from 6AM to 9PM {for all your art class-meets-coffee desires} making this an ideal off-the-beaten spot to catch up on emails or with friends before/after work.

    The Coffee

    Turquoise Cup proudly serves Nobletree Coffee whose beans are farmed using sustainable practices in Brazil and then roasted in nearby Brooklyn. In addition to their house blend, specialty flavors include lavender, hazelnut, and pumpkin, which are nice additions with cooler temps coming our way this weekend.

    The Art Studio


    Unleash your inner Picasso and join The Turquoise Cup for one of the many art classes they have already scheduled in the month of October. Clay handling for kids, sculpting for beginners, and pottery wheel date night are just a few of the options listed on the giant chalk board calendar inside the shop. They also boast a private upstairs space for a birthday party or girls’ night event.

    Can’t wait until Saturday? Neither can we! Thankfully, we found out {the easy way} that The Turquoise Cup is giving away FREE coffee every day this week for their soft opening, so ditch those Keurig pods {they won’t miss you anyway} and stop by on your morning commute. The grand opening will feature free food, drinks, classes, live music, and face painting, so be sure to stop by on Saturday anytime from 1pm to 4pm so you don’t miss out on any of the fun.
