When childhood friends Holly and Shawn stepped away from their corporate careers and started Rook Coffee in 2010, they wanted to make people feel special. Since the beginning, in that 300-square-foot shack, Rook has focused on offering specialty coffees that inspire genuine, human connections. We do that with three promises: quality, simplicity and experience.
Quality is our most important driver. We meticulously select, roast, brew and taste coffee, always pushing for the perfect product. Simplicity is shown through our love for great coffee and our desire to share it with you in its most genuine form. We invite customers to leave distractions behind, join us and simply enjoy their coffee experience. Which leads us to our third promise - experience. We seek happiness with each and every interaction and believe your positive experience is just as important as the coffee you are sipping.
Ten years since the company’s inception, Rook has continued to grow and expand on New Jersey's coast. With eleven stores in operation, our roastery, cold brew coffee brewery and headquarters is located in Long Branch, NJ - not far down the road from Rook's very first location.
This place is amazing!!! I stopped in today for the first time and the two guys that helped me were very friendly and knowledgeable about the coffee. Absolutely excellent quality. - Angelina M.
Best coffee in NJ. Hands down. Lived in several areas and nothing compares to Rook! - Ryan M.
I don't know what I would do without my Rook Red Bank team! My Bigger New Orleans coffee is just as amazing as the folks that prepare it for me!! - Deb S.
