Burger Eatery and The Grind Coffee Shop Opening

It's a brand new week and what better way to kick it off than with two new eateries in Jersey City officially opening up soon?

The Grind Coffee Shop at 360 Communipaw Ave in Bergen-Lafayette is a new coffee shop serving La Colombe Coffee made with La Marzocco equipment. They've been working on the space for the past several months, but opened their doors this past Saturday for their soft opening and are having their grand opening today, 12/14. Their hours are 7am-7pm and they'll also have a selection of other beverages, freshly baked local pastries and food, and even a loyalty card.


Also opening is the long-awaited burger spot on Erie and 1st, now officially revealed to be Burger Eatery. The spot has been under construction for well over a year but after some delays, they're back on track and officially opening on Monday, the 21st. No word yet on menu or permanent hours, but we can definitely count on a selection of burgers with varied toppings. The space looks great with a dark wood interior and mostly counter-type seating, perfect for a casual bite. They'll be offering delivery and catering services starting spring of next year.

  1. Great. Another burger joint to add to the crowded list (White Star, Left Bank, Greene Hook, New Park, Five Guys, Hamilton Inn, every bar in JC).

    I'll try it but hard to get excited about another chic burger clone that serves an egg on it or some special-cured bacon. Yawn.

    Here's a concept: when are we going to get a ACTUAL BBQ place downtown? Or a real eat-in Chinese restaurant?

    1. I'm hoping this place will maybe go back to simple burgers and be more of a straight-forward burger counter which would help separate it from the crowd, but it's too soon to know. Variety is always a plus.

  2. Hi. Have you tried Shanghai Best on Montgomery or Grand Sichuan on Grove? They serve soup dumplings too.

    1. 1st - there are a number of Americans who do enjoy more traditional dishes as well as the more Americanized ones.
      2nd - Please edit your comment to get rid of the offensive terminology or I will have to delete it. I won't allow racist or discriminatory terms in the comments.

    2. In case anyone is wondering, my reply above is not to Krysanne, but to another commenter who was trying to bring up a complaint about restaurants in town and used a racist term. I asked the commenter to edit their reply, they didn't, so it's been deleted. I'm all for open discussion, but I will not allow racist terms.
