Essex County has become a hotspot for foodies + coffee lovers, so we welcome this new euro-style cafe that has hit the city of Orange, NJ. Located at 32 Lincoln Avenue (just make sure to type in ‘Orange House Cafe’ in Google Maps or Waze so you’re directed right to the right spot), this spot serves a variety of hot drinks, freshly squeezed juices, house-made sandwiches + soups, as well as freshly baked goods. The Montclair Girl Team sat down with Orange House Cafe and learned all about this new coffee shop on the train platform. Read on to find out more about the cafe and how it’s making a name for itself in the Orange community.
How The Cafe Got Started
Orange House Cafe was started by a team of four partners, each with their own Greek + European ancestry, who wanted to bring their heritage and culture to the community. With the new development in the area, the train platform proved to be the perfect landscape to open up shop.
This coffee shop brings high-quality coffee, homemade menu items, and unique imported products to the town, and through this classic, yet modern cafe, you can expect a chill atmosphere and quality service. The barista team is friendly, and professional, and can make a wide range of beverages to satisfy all your cravings.
This local cafe prides itself on creating a unique libation experience using the freshest ingredients. Featuring coffee made using iLLY beans, Orange House Cafe boasts a menu filled with Greek specialties such as Greek coffee, frappes, lattes, and espressos.
The team behind Orange House Cafe handmakes House Folds (Greek-style empanadas stuffed with different ingredients), homemade soups, croissants, and French bread sandwiches. The cafe has freshly squeezed orange juice, hand-crafted smoothies, and a daily delivery of muffins + danishes.
For a savory lunch, we definitely recommend trying a local favorite – the spinach, onion, and feta Orange House Fold. The Nutella + strawberry jam fold is unparalleled if you have a sweet tooth. Other customer favorites at the cafe include the prosciutto + tomato sandwich, the turkey and provolone croissant, and the peanut butter blast smoothie. In addition to the unique menu, the storefront also sells imported prepacked goods, store-ground coffee beans, apparel, and European chocolates + snacks.
Orange House Cafe is as quaint as can be. With greenery cascading from the ceilings and bold yet organic furnishings, this cafe is the perfect place to relax, catch up, and grab a bite to eat or something to drink. Located conveniently across the street from the Orange train station, this cafe is the perfect spot to stop before heading to or from work. The storefront also has a live train to help commuters take the guesswork out of their daily travel.
More than that, the team at Orange House Cafe is knowledgeable, warm, inviting, and friendly. With experience crafting only the highest quality menu and drink items, this local hang-out is sure to caffeinate and satiate all who visit.
