Halloumi and Havarti Grilled Cheese. Home made Smoked Fig Jam. Challah Bread. Our ingredients for this sandwich display various European origins. The Challah being from Eastern Europe, the Havarti from Denmark, and the Halloumi from Cyprus. They all come together to make an American dish that was developed sometime in the 1920s. Jersey City was originally built by European immigrants; and this is one of our nods to it’s development. Its available for lunch at 11 AM.

Bulgogi Breakfast Skillet. Marinated Bulgogi beef, homemade hash browns, peppers, green onion, sesame seed, topped off with two poached eggs and chili sauce. Bulgogi is a popular Korean marinated meat that is eaten in a variety of ways; over rice, BBQ’ed, in a lettuce wrap and so much more. 0.9% of Jersey City is Korean, and we needed a dish on our menu to represent that part of our City. It’s sweet and savory marinade pairs really well with our fluffy hash browns, so we made it into a breakfast skillet, the Cafe Alyce way. Enjoy it with our house-made biscuit to pick up any extra sauce that you might have missed.

We’re bringing France to McGinley Square by offering a variety of Kusmi Tea. Kusmi Tea was originally founded by Russian owner Pavel Kousmichoff, and moved to Paris at the onset of the Russian Revolution. It’s a diverse tea in both story and aromatics, much like Jersey City.
We have all your favorites in hot tea, and Grapefruit Rosechip Green Tea and Black Tea from Ceylon & China for your iced options.

Our southern-rooted owners, and now long term Jersey City residents, have a lot of love for grits. Just like our restaurant, Delta Grind is a small, family run business. We use their steel-cut grits in our version of Shackshouka, and in the Shrimp and Grits—our southern staple— as well as offer it as a side to a few other dishes. We’re happy to share a piece of our old home to our new one, and enjoy creating versatile recipes that appeal to all with this powerful ingredient.

Gabriel is an honorary JC resident– meaning he lives here about half the time. His best friends live in the McGinley Square Area, and they spend their time working on creative projects for the neighborhood. While his residence isn’t official, the city has still welcomed him with love– love that he’s reciprocated. We’re grateful to be considered one of his favorite spots. Come in and say hi to Gabriel sometime, or enjoy your own solo milkshake.

Freshly squeezed orange juice produced in-house by our automatic juicer. It was made by TG Nelson and then by Polish immigrants who improved juicer technology in the 50’s. It only has three moving parts. This city was built by immigrants from around the world, and it’s thanks to them that we get to have little bits of magic and simplicity everyday.

"You must cook for Jersey City," she said. "You wont be alone here."
"But what will I cook?" I asked.
"We will find our way," was the reply.
Cafe Alyce is our journey to tell the inspiring & delicate stories of Jersey City and it's people.

MEMORY OF MOM CONVINCES NOMADIC CHEF TO SERVE JERSEY CITY’S GRAND & DELICATE STORIES…

My name is Tory Aunspach. I named our restaurant Café Alyce after my mom, who would have wanted me to serve a higher cause and to try my best to inspire others.

Mom laid out the principles for a life well lived, but then expected me to uncover my own direction and purpose.

I have been searching for both much of my life, having lived a big cooking life on the road and on yachts around the seas for 20 years before I moved to JC. It was a great adventure of youth, but a tad lonely and not grounded enough for a purposeful life. My friend and now restaurant partner suggested Jersey City and I came with apprehension.

“You must cook for this place” she said. “You won’t be alone here.”

“But what will I cook?” I asked. “We will find our way” was the reply. And we did.

Café Alyce is my journey to honor my mother, bond with this second-to-none city that unites us all, and to celebrate its beautiful people and their stories.

Dinners are coming soon. We are nervous for how delicate stories will translate to full narratives in what will be a new format for us. Expect mistakes made with love.

Not feeling lonely any more, only excited to give back. Thank you Jersey City for welcoming me in:)

Love, Tory

P.S. We serve breakfast and lunch daily, except Tuesdays. We are located at the corner of Montgomery and Baldwin. Please do introduce yourself as I would love to know you:) More on us here: www.cafealyce.com.

Today we met Colleen, a South African native who was visiting her son who just moved to Jersey City. She was also a part of McGingley Square some years ago, as a Medical Sales Rep, for Jersey City Hospital which is now known as The Beacon. She recalled the powder pink marbled pillars and the brass inlaid floors as she settled in to dine in the former Medical Center Luncheonette, just across the street. It was a pleasure having Colleen and her family back at what is now Cafe Alyce. What a blessing to walk down memory lane and come full circle while blowing bubbles and listening to charming stories.

Rice for breakfast is not typically an “American” staple, but the mixing pot of cultures around Jersey City proves otherwise. Cafe Alyce represents the neighbors around us with Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern and African roots, and provides delicious menu options with a nod to their breakfast culture with our own little twist.
Jasmine Rice, snow peas, mushrooms, bean sprouts, carrot and green onion with crispy bacon and a perfectly poached egg topped with sesame seeds. Cafe Alyce’s Rice for Breakfast.

Shrimp and Grits. A southern staple we brought up to the east coast. Wild caught U12 shrimp, poached eggs, and old-stone mill processed Delta Grind Grits and a homemade biscuit. These are not your average grits! They’re from a woman-owned company in Oxford, Mississippi, and we make them fresh every morning. They’re cheesy and buttery, but we add neither to the mix— just water, heavy cream and half and half. Come try them yourself and experience their magic.
