There's truly only one way I can start my morning and that's with a big ole' cup of coffee! Whether it's to kick start a work day or grab a coffee and catch up with a friend, here are my favorite spots in Mercer County to check out.
At Earth's End
45 Spring St, Princeton, NJ 08542
If you want to transport yourself to Italy with a good brew, check out At Earth's End! Located in Princeton, At Earth's End has a cafe which features illy, authentic Italian coffee dating back to 1933. I recommend sitting in and drinking your coffee in-house because the brew bar is absolutely beautiful! Please note that At Earth's End is closed on Monday.
Bonus: At Earth's End also has a cigar parlor to unwind and enjoy your coffee there too

Grover's Mill Coffee

It's a bird...no...a plane...no, no....a UFO?! Grover Mill's Coffee was inspired by the infamous Orson Welles' radio broadcast version of "The War of the Worlds" claiming of a Martian invasion in Grover's Mill, New Jersey. This family-owned and operated business does a fantastic job in providing fresh coffee roasted in-house that they were voted in the article, The Best Coffee Shop in Every State as the best in the state!

The Moth Coffeehouse
Located in Shops at the Old Hill (42 S Main St #1685, Allentown, NJ 08501)
Zoe, Corky, Kris and Alia Danch started The Moth by starting at the fall festival in 2015 in Allentown. From there they began to get more and more patrons coming in to get a taste of a great brew! The Moth Coffeehouse name came from the Luna Moth that represents new beginnings bringing a new beginning at the mill following construction on the bridge and dam across from the mill.
Bonus: There's plenty of homestyle baking that is predominately vegan and made from scratch daily in their kitchen. Have a celebration coming up? You can get a special order cake too!
