Great local spot for breakfast. Super friendly staff, tons of options to choose from and the best pumpkin spice latte I’ve ever had. Plenty of outdoor seating and safety measures in place inside when ordering. Highly recommend!

Cute place in the cute town of Hopewell, New Jersey. Lots of locals streaming in and out. I got a decent cup of London Fog...and was all set to dive into working, was logging in to my laptop, when I saw the posted sign that...no working with laptops are allowed on certain days of the week, Sunday being one of those days, until 1:30 P.M. Ah well... So, I packed up and left. This is more of a "rustic look" place. Plenty of tables, packed somewhat tight. Service is friendly. I could tell the locals like coming in here. Wonderful porch with several tables. Bottom Line: I'll most likely be back, but not 'til 1:31 P.M.More

Boro Bean is a time honored and tested staple of the Hopewell community. Coffee on the porch or choose a little table inside. Walls covered in local art and several local papers plus the NY Times. The food is delicious, reliable and promptly served. And...fresh. Staff is attentive and friendly. Used books are available to buy for a buck. I love coming here. Great stop for road bikes passing through.More

This little coffee house is in a former home. It faces the Main Street in Hopewell. If you sit on the front porch you can people-watch as well as see the cars go by. It is very cozy inside and the food is wonderful. I...have loved their cookies and muffins.More

Another favorite of us locals, Boro Bean has strong coffee, delicious muffins to go with it, and a menu of healthy breakfast plates as well as salads and sandwiches for lunch. Plus, you can work here on your wifi for hours! Boro Bean is part...of why Hopewell is the Bomb!More

After walking around this picturesque town we stopped at the Boro Bean to try some of their coffee. The Dark Roast Coffee has a lot of flavor and my wife’s approval. This is a nice charming coffee shop to spend a little relax time.

If you dislike the espresso drinks made on the automatic coffee machines used by the large chains and prefer hand tamped restaurant quality espresso drinks, you will like the Boro Bean. The standard brew coffee is also very good. They also offer a variety of...cup cakes that look good but I have never tried. This is the best coffee shop in the area and they offer ample indoor and outdoor seating..More

Love this place! Cozy and at the same time roomy enough to enjoy your coffee and feel relaxed. Nice setting and easily located downtown Hopewell with a lot of street parking. Personnel very nice and polite and quite knowledgeable on their coffee. I usually drink...espresso coffee based drinks and they serve it in the perfect temperature where you can enjoy coffee immediately without getting burned. Very good breakfast options as well!More
