French cafe Choc-o-Pain has officially opened its fifth cafe in Jersey City’s Journal Square neighborhood. Owner Clemence Danko debuted the new cafe at 244 St. Pauls Avenue inside new luxury rental building Le Léo.

“Thanks to the loyalty of our customers, we’ve experienced steady expansion since opening the first Choc-O-Pain in Hoboken in 2012,” said Danko. “We’re excited to be a part of the burgeoning Journal Square scene, while providing a special amenity to Le Léo’s residents.”

Guests can look forward to Choc-o-Pain’s award-winning breads, French pastries, tarts, cakes, and croissants. The Le Leo cafe will also offer lunch items, gluten-free eats, and vegan/vegetarian friendly specials. Artisanal chocolates, macarons, candies, and Alain Milliat jams will also be available. Back in 2017, Choc-o-Pain expanded to the Heights with its Palisade Avenue location.
