In our ongoing search for places to write in Jersey City, we have stumbled upon Brewshot. Tucked behind a stretch on condos by the water, this modern coffee house has the three key things for creative types crave: work space, wifi and caffeine.
The large windows and blond wood create a bright environment that energizes. And don’t let the Jane’s Addiction frame concert photos fool you. The sound system doesn’t just crank out 90s music — the playlist is the typical cool, hipster mix coffee houses gravitate towards.
Weekday hours aren’t great for the day job crowd – Brewshot closes early so use it as a weekend place. The food is good (try the empanadas!), but it’s basic light fare menu delicious as it is. The coffee and tea selection, however, are top notch with many delectable choices.
