ChicpeaJC at Angel Azul Bakery - 460 Central Avenue, Jersey City

David, the District Manager of Central Ave SID, and I have a standing monthly lunch date in the Heights. He takes me to his favorite spots to try out in his district. This time we decided to meet for breakfast at a local favorite; “Angel Azul Bakery and Cafeteria” on Central Ave. We met at around 8:30 on a Thursday morning and the place was packed! There was a line up out the door… I told David to get a bunch of stuff so we could share. He got an assortment of breads, some fried pork and potatoes and the most delicious Cafe Con Leche!! Yum!

Five Great Reasons to #ShopLocal

Shop with a purpose. For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $73 remains in the community. Those dollars help fund local wages, local taxes and other locally owned businesses, as well as donations to local non-profits. This compares to only $43 remaining in the community when you spend $100 at a non-locally owned business. Additionally, small businesses simply work harder to earn your business through product knowledge and personal customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage. You can find anything you need locally and your local businesses give back more to the community.
