Van Gogh’s Ear. Coffee — the Way it Should Be.

Van Gogh\'s Ear Expresso Bar

Not so many years ago there were tons of small eclectic coffee bars all over the country. Each one had it’s own funky identity. They were places you could chill out and stretch your mind on some Andre Gide or just hang out with friends and inhale eight double espressos. They were awesome.

In the 90’s this cafe culture was all but obliterated in favor of a fast food style approach.

In any case, there are a couple of survivors out there. Thank God. They’re kinda like the nomads roaming the desert in The Road Warrior. Survivors of a twisted Corporate Coffee Armageddon.

Get inspired. Get wired at Van Gogh\'s Ear.

One of those that deserves special attention is located in Union, New Jersey. It’s called Van Gogh’s Ear. Stock full up mismatched vintage furniture and interesting artwork — this blast from the 1980’s past may actually become my new favorite hangout.

The menu at at Van Gogh’s Ear features some great salads, sandwiches, deserts and of course amazing coffee. You can even enjoy Jamaica Blue Mountain via French Press. How dope is that.

Of course, I’ll stay with my eight double espressos.

So, if you enjoy good coffee in an engaging setting — stop by Van Gogh’s Ear. You’ll dig it.
