We can expect another great coffee shop to open soon in Jersey City. The new concept will take over the space located at 115 Brunswick street, just south of the Hamilton Park neighborhood and west of Downtown Jersey City.
Located in an up and coming section of the city, this will be one of very few coffee shops to operate on this particular city block.
The new business, which will be called Into the Void, plans on selling a sourced collection of antique furniture and decor in addition to coffee and espresso.
Store owners, Greg Yannalfo and Andy Schulz are both New Jersey natives and currently operate an antique booth at the refurbished factory space in Bridgeport, Connecticut known as Mongers Market. They also make sales through their Instagram page that they started back in 2020.
Into the Void sells rare vintage oddities that include papier-mâché masks, handmade ceramic leopards, paintings from the 1920s, and furniture from the 60s. The couple hopes to create a fun and new experience for its customers in Jersey City.
The storefront is currently experiencing major renovation to prepare for the new layout that will include 18,000 square feet of space that will feature a wide range of antiques described by store owners Yannalfo and Schulz as “rare, odd, exciting, and beautiful." There will be a focus on modern 20th century design throughout the store.
The storeowners also have a passion for great coffee and plan on sharing their expertise of a great cup of joe with their patrons. The coffee beans will be sourced from Ithaca's Forty Weight Coffee Roasters, a company thats been in business for the past decade and offers six different coffee blends including a mountain water decaf described as having a silky dark chocolate flavor and three different espresso blends. They will also be selling a variety of rotating pastry options.
Since both store owners grew up in New Jersey, Jersey City appealed to them the most as a location to open their first store front. They're both super excited to become a part of the growing diverse community that Jersey City is known for. As of right now there is no definite date set for an official store opening but both Yannalfo and Shulz hope to have everything up and running by this Fall.
