Red Eye Cafe on a whole new level.
If you need a place to grab a great cup of coffee before hitting the morning train, want a place to read a book while eating a delicious sandwich or just want a new café to try, the Red Eye Cafe is the place to go.
Located on Walnut Street in Montclair, the café is run by Anthony Brinton. The Red Eye Cafe is near the Walnut train station, making it a great place for commuters and noncommuters alike to stop and grab something to eat.
Brinton describes the café as “modern meets classic.” The Red Eye Cafe serves not only coffee, but food with a twist: dishes you can’t find in many other places, including dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch on weekends.
It could be said that Brinton has also perfected the brewing process, making hot and cold coffees alike using techniques like an overnight chilling process to make the perfect beverage. The coffee is put in ice overnight, allowing the coffee to brew for an extended period of time, bringing out the flavors of the coffee even more.
Brinton also comments on how many times they have changed their menu, and that Studio042 has been extremely helpful in reprintingtheir updated menus.
However, brewing coffee and selling foods such as the Blue Velvet (a roast beef sandwich with pickled blueberries and shallots, Brinton’s savory-yet-sweet favorite) aren’t the only things the Red Eye Cafe strives for. This cafe is truly something different. Be sure to stop by whenever you’re visiting the great town of Montclair. You surely won’t be disappointed.
