The inspiration for Box Cafe was born out of a husband and wife’s love for creative baking and cooking from the heart, most of which has taken place in Jersey City - their home for almost 25 years! Their passion to live, work and play in our beloved neighborhood led us to funnel their energy into Box Cafe. They’re on a mission to offer homemade baked goods and whole quality dishes that cater to the diverse people of Jersey City, all in a cozy setting that reflects our own home design.


Rescue Treats bakes all-natural dog treats and donates the profits to dog rescues. Treats contain nothing artificial. No junk, no fillers, no preservatives, and no artificial ingredients.
