Brently,
I've been here over 10 years, much of that working in Monmouth County, and
haven't found anything rerally good yet. There used to be a Java City at
Bell Labs in Holmdel, they were acceptable, but not accessable to the public
& no longer there (Java City, Lucent ... everything!).
There's this list:http://www.metrojersey.com/coffeehouses.htmbut I've been
disapointed with the few I've tried.
A friend claimed that No Joe's in Red Bank was great "almost as good as
Dunkin' Donuts". There are a lot of good resaurants in Red Bank, so the trip
wouldn't be a total loss! Juanito's is an outstanding Mexican restaurant
there, one of my favorites.
But, it could be worse. I'm working in Southern NJ now. But good food &
coffee is even more sparse here, unless you go across the river to Philly
which really isn't an option.
Best of luck!

sorry. nothing that i know of. I have a small shop near my house that's nice
(Suga' No Creame) but it isn't stellar. Good coffee and average espresso.
I do, however, hear that there's a budding barrista in north/central new
jersey. right around exit 15 ;- )

diner coffee is always a good backup.

lol.. dd and diner coffee are basically the only 2 things ill drink outside
my home.
oh, wait, street vendor coffee isnt too bad either.
though i was in FL last week, had espresso at emerils. they had an
impressive list of choices, both SO and blended.  cheapest was $6 for their
florio blend (i had this, it was ok), to $16? 18? for their jamaican blue
mountain. ha.
