I heard a rumor that the Starbucks on Bloomfield Ave. is closing on Dec. 31. I overheard this news while at the Starbucks on the corner of S. Park and Church streets.

I prefer the Starbucks at 40 S. Park St. It’s a total scene. The place becomes Mommy Central after school drop offs, and I’ve made at least 3 close friends there. I also run in after working out at New York Sports Club. This Starbucks doesn’t mind my kids when school is closed, or when I just need to get out of the house. (That’s them, right.)

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention our wonderful locally owned coffee shops in Montclair Center. Cafe Eclectic, 444 Bloomfield Ave., is great for bringing my laptop (free WiFi) and for their grown-up atmosphere. I also really like the way the coffee tastes at Bean’s Choice at 42 Church St.

What’s your favorite local coffee shop?

    I think Montclair lacks a really decent coffee shop. However I escaped from the kids a few weeks ago to have afternoon tea at Cha Ma Gu Dao on Glenridge Avenue (next to Minnow)….it was the nearest thing to heaven – really zen-like space, delicious little cookies and a big pot of Lapsong Souchong plus a copy of the New Yorker.

Christie's political career is finished and quite frankly, the state of New Jersey is so over him and his big mouth bully tactics that we're all wishing his replacement was part of the Nov 8 election. Hooking his caboose to the disastrous Trump campaign is his only option.
