9 Independently-Owned Coffee Shops At The Jersey Shore

Independent coffee shops provide a great way to fuel, refuel, and reset your day. Many also go the extra mile of providing a place to meet up, connect, reconnect, exchange ideas, and work remotely, which helps enhance and strengthen local communities.

The following is an alphabetical list (by town) of independently-owned coffee shops in Monmouth & Ocean counties that are doing just that. From the photos, you'll see that each one has a different vibe, and is unique in its own way. Some also offer small bites, meals, and open-mic nights.

A few have been open for less than a year so I hope that this list helps make people aware of these new businesses. Be sure to check store hours on Google before you head out!
