Stack Creamery • Jersey City
This custom ice cream shop in Westwood is expanding to a storefront in Jersey City. Stack is family-owned and -operated, and this will be their second location, where they’ll continue to serve made-from-scratch cookies and brownies, and locally made ice cream. Stack allows its guests to build their own ice cream sandwiches, by first choosing a cookie base (like Peanut Butter Cup or S’Mores) and then an ice cream flavor (with options of Banana Cream Pie, Cannoli, Matcha Green Tea and more). Other delicious treats on the menu include a Donut Ice Cream Sandwich, Ice Cream Pie and Bigwich Ice Cream Cake. No opening date has been announced yet.

The Westmont Diner • Westmont
Husband and wife Christos and Eirini Prentzas relocated their diner from Haddon Ave. to Cuthbert Blvd., buying the former location of the Crystal Lake Diner, which had previously closed last year. Though they originally intended to open a second location, the Prentzas have since decided to move their entire business over to the new location, as it contains more space in the kitchen and dining areas. Westmont Diner also opened a new late-night takeout service, My Midnight Café, with a menu of breakfast and finger foods for late-night and early-morning snackers.

Yuki’s Bakery and Coffee • Hoboken
A new bakery/coffee shop is opening its first location in Hoboken. Owner Yuki Levinson grew up in Israel, inspired by the organic way her parents and neighbors made things in the kitchen.

The menu will include her signature Babkas, Vegan Oat and Date Squares and Quiches, plus items like Za’atar spice and organic tea. All coffee will be supplied by Counter Culture Coffee. Yuki’s is set to open sometime early next week.
