Summit NJ is just one of those cool small towns with a metropolitan feel. Walking down any street brings vendors with decades of service combined with the trendiest shops and eateries. Cornerstones like the Summit Diner and Zappias share real estate with Healthy Choice Organic Mattress. Its a town where global coffee brands thrive on the same street. And then there is Boxwood Coffee.
Its one of those gems you find when wandering the streets looking for a place to unwind or "stir" up creativity on a warm spring evening. Still about 10 feet from the door the alluring aroma of fresh brew draws on through the doors, only to find Intelligentsia coffee lining the shelves and a menu of coffee & tea beverages with more than something for everyone. After six months Boxwood has a homey comfortable feel. With open counters you can watch your barista craft your pour over while pondering the dessert selection including gluten free selections.
Seating includes large and small tables, intimate comfy nook tables and “at the bar” seats by the window. But its the selection of coffees and teas that delight the senses. The Bellamy's are passionate about coffee and small business and both were welcoming and enthusiastic though the doors were closing. Open mic and Trivia nights have already been wildly successful as well as some wonderful tea events to come.
The pour over was perfection, strong and flavorful chocolate and fig notes with a smooth taste. Though it was definitely a hot coffee evening Stephanie shared her Fizzo con Panna creation blending coffee sparkling water and whipped cream. A summer drink perfectly paired for a walk through town.
The community feel of Boxwood Coffee makes one think they have been there forever. The Bellamy’s passion for a great pour will encourage you to bring friends and family and hang out for awhile, and that intoxicating aroma of fresh ground coffee will float you right through the doors
