Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Indulge in savory streetside fare with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh sandwiches, desserts, and café fare at Maroon, located in Hoboken.
Maroon freshens up taste buds with a tantalizing menu of savory café cuisine and more than 25 in-house brewed concoctions. Sift through the branches of loose-leaf beverages and espresso-based drinks to find your preferred caffeinated creations. French-pressed coffee ($2.25–$2.50) comes in flavors such as chocolate strudel, macadamia, french vanilla, hazelnut, tiramisu, café blend, and decaf café blend. Eclectic tea flavors include kumquat lemon ($3), litchi jasmine ($3.50), and mango ($3) as well as a frothy assortment of bubble teas ($4). Five-inch chocolate-chunk cookies ($1.75) make for delicious makeshift frisbees, and the smoked ham-and-cheese with siracha chili mayo offers the best way to experience smoked pork outside of speaking to cigar-puffing, monocle-wearing boars. Maroon's sleek lines and angular furnishing puts a modern spin on traditional café décor, and its web of spider-free WiFi allows diners to enjoy a handmade croissant in peace.
Six Yelpers give Maroon Café a five-star average:

- I have long awaited a place like this in Hoboken and thought about some day wanting to open this exact type of cafe. If you're into coffee or tea, this place is definitely not to be missed. – Toni W., 8/03/2009
