If there is one thing that’s become ridiculously popular once Millennials became adults, it’s brunch. Brunch is that perfect Sunday meal where friends can hang out, drink mimosas, and eat a nice, classy hybrid between breakfast and lunch. Every majorly trendy city has at least one or two places where people experience a truly awesome brunch.
Hoboken is no different. If anything, it’s one of the brunch hotspots of New Jersey. If you’re a fan of brunch and are in town, take a look at these hot venues serving up everyone’s favorite trendy meal…
225 River St
Halifax is one of those names that you can’t have a brunch list without mentioning. Nestled right at the W Hotel, Halifax remains the place for bottomless brunch, and You can expect fresh ingredients, awesome service, and a perfect outdoor dining setting that always offers up good views.
We strongly suggest the cured meats and pate platter for carnivores. If you’re more of a vegetarian, their challah French toast and potato poutine dishes can’t be ignored. Oh, and if you love a good Bloody Mary? This is your new go-to.
104 Washington Street
La Isla is a Cuban restaurant that’s so popular. It managed to grow into two different locations in the city. Fans who want an exotic brunch are going to love their BYOB setting, complete with a brunch menu that’s packed with Latin flavor.
Fans of this restaurant swear by their huevos rancheros, as well as their chicharron con waffles. But, be careful here! Brunch is only served on Sundays here!
56 14th St.
If you’re a fan of uptown class with a modern, deconstructed twist, then you’re going to love the ambiance of City Bistro. This indoor-and-rooftop bistro quickly became the place to go to mingle with the artsy crowd of the city. Expect good style here.
Food-wise, you can’t go wrong with City Bistro. This venue has amazing modern American cuisine. You’ll love their brunch sandwiches, fresh drinks, and awesome service.
The Shepherd & the Knucklehead
1313 Willow Ave
Don’t be fooled by the goofy name! The Shepherd & The Knucklehead is one of the most elegant places to eat in Hoboken. During most of the week, you will enjoy world-class fare and one of the best craft beer bars in New Jersey. During brunch time? It’s game on.
The Shep’ boasts some awesome fusion cuisine for brunch. We suggest their breakfast tacos and their choose-your-style omelets.
1314 Washington Street
Bin 14 started as Hoboken’s only wine bar, and yet, it’s become so much more! This elegant wine bar is an ideal date night place during weekdays but also acts as a great place to meet up with the girls during brunch time.
There are two menus here: a prix-fixe menu and an a la carte menu. We suggest their Bin Benedict (for egg fans who love a twist), their pizzas, and their mimosas. After all, it’s not brunch if you’re not getting lit.
The Elysian Cafe

306 Sinatra Drive
Union Hall knows how to do it up when it comes to brunch. Delicious waffles, kickass eggs, and awesome small dishes make this one gastropub you do not want to miss during weekend brunch hours.
The big appeal here is Union Hall’s “bottomless” brunch, which includes giving you a massive mug filled to the brim with the drink of your choice. Expect to have great times when you head over here.
