Nestled on Bloomfield Avenue off Main Street, Hardy’s Coffee Bar energizes the Flemington downtown scene with craft coffee in an artisan atmosphere. Not only does this family business serve single-source coffee that they roast locally, but they also immerse you in a complete experience that blends an urban-chic setting with authentic preparation and loyal service. You’ll discover an intimate oasis where coffee connoisseurs can relax, meet, mingle or work.
- Membership Has Its Perks. You don’t have to be a member to check out Hardy’s — just ring the bell. But you may love the experience so much that membership will be a no-brainer. Membership perks extend beyond the automatic entrance “key”— though really, you had us at dachshund-dog-shaped key fob! Members also get deals like $1 off drip Coffee, 5% off retail items and access to the member’s menu as well as members-only special events. These bonuses all come with a yearly membership of just $9.
- Locally Roasted, Ethically Sourced Craft Coffee. Hardy’s roasts small batches of high-quality beans as part of the new “third wave” of coffee. All of their beans are sourced from single-origin plantations (often family-owned). Then they are locally roasted at Danielle and Peach Hardy’s roastery before being shipped to serve at their coffee bar. Not a coffee lover, not a problem. The coffee bar offers a variety of exotic teas like tangerine ginger, hibiscus berry and black vanilla as well as traditionalist faves like chai to temp your tea-loving palette. And for the chocoholic, well, everyone knows you cannot beat a creamy hot cocoa made from Flemington’s own Fudge Shop cocoa mix.
- Filtered Water Ensures Pure Taste. Hardy’s Coffee Bar uses a specially designed filtration system that curates water without impurities yet leaves in select minerals to make more rounded, better-tasting coffee. In addition, the barista serves your cup of coffee on a wooden tray alongside a glass of ultra-filtered, purified water to cleanse your palette. And the aesthetic pleasure of a rich cup of coffee next to a crystal clear glass of water is certainly Instagram-worthy.
- Small Business Relationships Add Local Flavor. Hardy’s Coffee Bar is owned by Hunterdon County Residents Danielle and Peach Hardy, who have a vision to perk up Flemington with a little caffeine lovingly prepared and served.
