Choc•O•Pain Bakery opening 5th Hudson County location near Journal Square

French bakery and café Choc•O•Pain on Friday announced it is opening its fifth area location in Hudson County later this month in Jersey City.

Located at 244 St. Paul’s Ave., the new café is found in the street-level retail space and well-appointed lobby lounge of Le Léo, the new 99-unit luxury rental building developed by Park Stone Management and Fields Grade.

Owner Clemence Danko explains: “Thanks to the loyalty of our customers, we’ve experienced steady expansion since opening the first Choc•O•Pain in Hoboken in 2012. We’re excited to be a part of the burgeoning Journal Square scene, while providing a special amenity to Le Léo’s residents. Now the entire neighborhood can enjoy our daily, fresh baked breads, pastries and café items.”

As with the four other Choc•O•Pain locations, guests will be able to order through the website for convenient pickup or delivery. Catering for business or private events is also available.

The Le Léo location (and entrance) of Choc•O•Pain is situated just off John F. Kennedy Boulevard and is a less than 10-minute walk to the Journal Square PATH station — perfect for grab-and-go.

Guests can look forward to enjoying Choc•O•Pain’s signature house-made breads, French pastries, tarts, cakes, and croissants, breakfast and lunch items, and even gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian specialties. French specialty food items such as artisanal chocolates, macarons, candies and Alain Milliat jams also will be available.
