As summer winds down here at the Jersey Shore, I know I am getting in my last iced coffee orders. For this blog I’d like to highlight Batch on Main in downtown Manasquan. Not only is this business a success story, but the coffee is delicious. And who doesn’t love an iced coffee drink to kick start a hot summer day?
The shop has an extensive coffee and tea menu, ranging from a classic cup of joe to a beet root latte. I started my morning with a large iced vanilla latte with milk. It hit the spot. In keeping with the beverage options, Batch offers fresh pressed juices and original carbonated drinks.
Bakery items are baked fresh daily. The menu also includes wraps, toasts (avocado, almond butter, hummus) and tasty grab-and-go snacks. Gluten free and vegan items are readily available, too. I think their food and drink selections bring creativity, nutrition, and delectability!
While you wait for your order to be ready, you can peruse the shelves of merchandise curated by local artisans- candles, jewelry, accessories, plants, decor. Or you can take a seat in the warm, bright, inviting front window.
Batch is women-owned and was opened during the pandemic. Business seems to be thriving for them, because they will be opening another location in Point Pleasant in 2023! Until the second shop opens, try out an iced drink in Manasquan- you’ll be doing it THE SKEA WAY!
