Where to Get Your Caffeine Fix

Whether you’re part of a gaggle of strollers looking for an after-storytime treat…or

perhaps hoping for some wifi for your laptop…or maybe you just need some

coffee—NOW!—Rutherford’s downtown coffee shops come in a variety of styles.

Most of us know that Rutherford is home to two Dunkin Donuts (with a third on the

way) and a newly opened Starbucks, which is slightly outside the Downtown zone,

but did you know that there are also independent cafes, coffee shops and bakeries

with trained baristas and professional espresso machines? We have baked goods

and breakfast spots, commuter conveniences, and local and imported coffee, all in

our town.

More of a newsstand, however, there is a counter in the back where coffee and

buttered rolls are served.

even covering the fine dining establishments that serve a great cup of joe (yet). Send
