New Coffee Shop Planned for Downtown Millburn

MILLBURN, N.J.: A local downtown could soon be home to a new business.

According to a legal notice from the Township of Millburn, a coffee shop and café is being proposed for 315C Millburn Avenue, between the Rahway River and Lackawanna Place, in Downtown Millburn. The business would be operated by The Peccary, LLC, which was incorporated in October, according to State records. The company has applied to the Millburn Planning Board to allow for a change-in-use with variance relief from the zoning ordinance. The Board will hear the proposal during its meeting on Wednesday, January 17th at 7:30pm at the Municipal Building.

The space has been vacant several times before over the last two decades, though it was previously occupied by Bliss Activewear, Uma Stewart Interiors & Lifestyle, Furbish Home, and Toffee Toffee Children's Clothing Boutique.
