A new café with a focus on not only providing the highest-grade coffee and baked goods, but also offering a cool and hip community gathering space has opened its doors on Jersey City’s West Side.
Three Thirds Café is situated in ground floor retail space in the 3 Acres luxury rental community located at 400 Claremont Avenue. The chic and trendy new eatery has been introduced to this up-and-coming neighborhood by the team behind Amelia’s Bistro, the wildly popular restaurant in Jersey City’s Paulus Hook.
Conceptualized to offer a welcoming, industrial-inspired café that draws customers with a unique vibe created by an emphasis on art and music, Three Thirds Café emanates a laid-back ambiance where west coast surfer culture meets premium east coast roasting and culinary delights. The café features local goods with beans sourced from Modcup coffee roasters and baked delights from Baltazhar Bakery.
There’s a carefully selected music playlist to foster a relaxing atmosphere and local curated art which encourages customers to unwind and appreciate the local culture. The decor inside the pet-friendly café is industrial-driven with lounge couches and a rough-hewn wooden bar. In addition to offering classic caffeine induced beverages like coffee and cappuccino, there are season-specific specialty drinks. The food menu consists largely of breads, pastries scones, muffins, and waffles.
The cafe is open daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We wanted to create something special for not only the residents of 3 Acres, but also the community-at-large,” said JB Geibel, Vice President of Development of 400 Claremont, LLC, which developed 3 Acres. “Of course, that started with securing the talents of Amelia’s Bistro team, well-respected restaurateurs who are well-versed in serving the Jersey City community at its Downtown café. They crafted a theme for a café that would be a casual oasis away from the hustle and bustle of urban life where customers can enjoy the finest coffee, baked goods, food and more. The result was Three Thirds Café, a one-of-kind neighborhood spot that will comfort and welcome its guests with great coffee and food, pleasant service and a warm, hospitable environment.”
Three Thirds Café is part of an onsite retail experience at 3 Acres that will also soon feature The Lobby Bar and Table at 3 Acres restaurant.
