Here’s a pair of South Jersey coffee shops that can help you get your day off to the perfect start.

There’s something about South Jersey coffee shops that you won’t find at any chain shop. There’s an intimacy and character unique to every individually owned café and an experience that makes every trip worthwhile. From the honest smiles of staff members to that very first sip of our favorite brew, South Jersey coffee shops are always a happy place.

And if a large latte with a double shot isn’t already enough of a perk, when you stop in either of these South Jersey coffee shops and pay with an Xspero™ digital gift card, a local charity will receive 20 percent of your purchase at no extra cost to you. Now, that’s a brew-tiful thing!

Here are just a couple of our favorite South Jersey coffee shops that are a part of the Xspero™ network.

Bogart’s Bookstore & Café in Millville is certainly a café with character. The moment you step through the door, you’re greeted with color and a warm, friendly atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for a classic read, a fresh brew, or a bite from their delicious daily specials, Bogart’s Bookstore & Café has everything a book lover needs.

Hours of operation: Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Piccolo Café: When you need a little ‘perk’-me-up, Piccolo Café in Vineland is the perfect place to indulge caffeine and confection. Offering organic coffee selections such as iced cold brew, medium coffee blends, espresso, and piping hot cappuccino, they also have treats in their bakery-fresh display case to pair with your caffeinated beverage of choice.

Enjoy a freshly brewed latte or a freshly pressed panini, sip on a smoothie, or take a spoonful of Italian gelato. However you treat yourself, there’s something to savor at Piccolo Café.
