Sweet Talk Cafe is a new dessert cafe coming to the Whitman Square neighborhood of Washington Township, on the Black Horse Pike!

The new cafe is owned by Lynsey & Matt DeSimone, who live right in town!

They will be featuring her amazing gourmet desserts (made right in the store) as well as delicious coffee from the Ocean City Coffee Company!

Sweet Talk Cafe will be located in the small strip of stores located directly behind the Arby’s on the Black Horse Pike, right at the Whitman Drive entrance to the Whitman Square neighborhood.

While the fun and attractive Sweet Talk Cafe front sign is up at the new bakery, the couple are just now starting the interior remodeling work to convert the mostly empty space into a dessert and coffee showplace!

They just created their Facebook Page! Go LIKE to keep up to date with the latest on Sweet Talk Cafe.

Keep scrolling down and reading for more!

It’s interesting how at times it seems the planets can align to make good things happen.

So I follow along with a few Washington Township Facebook groups and two topics regularly come up in the chats.

And then there are the DeSimone’s who have also been reading along… and forming their own dream of a family bakery to showcase Lynsey’s talents.

Lynsey has been in the bakery business her entire life, having created amazing desserts and cakes for the bakeries of a large regional supermarket group…. and she also managed bakeries! A full understanding of bakery operations!

While she loves her career and creating new baked goods, it was always working for someone else.

The time became right for Lynsey (with help and support of Husband Matt) to take all of her skills in baking amazing desserts and running a bakery business… to start their own Cafe!

Sweet Talk Cafe!

Sweet Talk Cafe – Artistically Creative Desserts

STOP! So this is where I am going off my original script. I had this post written and just needed to add a few photos.

So as I was wrapping up this article I took a look at some of Lynsey’s social media accounts to grab a photo of two of what she has created.. and was simply blown away.

Lynsey is clearly doing baked goods at another level! She has beautiful cakes and cupcakes that I can’t wait to try…

But what also caught my attention is she is VERY artistically talented. Everything is so flawlessly created and her character based baked items are absolutely adorable!

I don’t know what the full plan is for the new bakery… but I can’t wait to see the delicious fun she’ll have cooked up!

Sweet Talk Cafe – The Location And Store

So now back to the regularly scheduled article…! Ha!

The couple has actually been planning this Cafe for a few years. Of course the pandemic slowed everyone one up a bit.

And it’s also just really tough at times to find the right space for your new business. There is a sense of permanency to making that final location decision!

Well they came up with a perfect location.

The new store location is situated along the busy Black Horse Pike, but alongside a key residential entrance road (Whitman Drive). Whitman drive at the Pike also has a traffic signal and turnaround.

The location will really make it easy for customers, neighbors and those passing through to pull in for a amazing baked treat or a delicious fresh brewed cup of coffee.

And if you live in the Whitman Square neighborhood you never have to enter onto the Black Horse Pike to get to Sweet Talk Cafe!

So while many in Facebook will say a very generic “someone should open up an X on the pike!”… The DeSimones are actually doing it! They are opening an awesome new business on the Black Horse Pike! And they are giving their neighbors what they’ve been asking for!

Sure the sign is up at the cafe, which is a “good sign” (Get it?!).. but I chatted with Lynsey yesterday and she tells me they have a lot of work ahead…. but they have a crew who is ready to move fast.

Previously the space was SJ Music… which is not really configured for a bakery!

As part of the interior work they will need to build a kitchen, bathroom, display areas, front lobby seating and more!

Plus all of the decorative touches which will need to be added!

Ocean City Coffee Co.

The new Sweet Talk Cafe Facebook page made the big announcement just this week!

The Sweet Talk Cafe will be featuring the Ocean City Coffee Co. coffees!

For those who visit Ocean City NJ, you already know how delicious the Jersey Shore town coffee is!

The actually roast the coffee at one of their boardwalk locations, and it will be delivered fresh to Sweet Talk Cafe.

Sweet Talk Cafe will also carry the teas and other items from Ocean City Coffee Co.!

Washington Township Proud

It’s obvious Lynsey and Matt feel a connection to Washington Twp. Matt grew up here (and Lynsey one town over in Williamstown!), they bought their own home in “Township” years ago, and now are they are opening their business here!

They literally can’t wait to be able to serve the community and beyond with their amazing dessert baked goods and coffee!

They are hoping for an early 2023 opening and are very eager to have the community come out for the Grand Opening… and then again and again after that!

10-year-old Gloucester County boy continues succesful hot cocoa stand benefiting Toys for Tots, CHOP

A growing mission years in the making, as a young Gloucester County boy is still working to brighten the holidays for those in need. He's lending a hand a serving up hot chocolate.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. - A growing mission years in the making, as a young Gloucester County boy is still working to brighten the holidays for those in need. He's lending a hand a serving up hot chocolate.

"It's like the toys are cool and there's a lot of them too," said 10-year-old Jordan Slippi-Mensah. His living room already looks like Christmas.

"A Mickey Mouse toy, I see an axe throwing set and I see a PJ Mask piano," Jordan said as he pointed out some of the toys. But the toys aren’t for him, his 5-year-old brother Chase or 2-year-old brother Tyler.

"I hope that they get to have a good Christmas because that's our goal every year," said Jordan. The toys and several thousand dollars donated by the community are going to Toys for Tots of Gloucester County and to children at CHOP.

"It just makes me feel really happy when I get to see all the happy kids in the hospital when they receive the toys," he said.

FOX 29’s Shawnette Wilson introduced Jordan three years ago when he founded a hot chocolate stand for toys at 5-years-old. He and his family serve up hot cups and baked treats as people drop off toys and monetary donations for his mission. He held this year’s stand over the weekend. From 5 to 10-years-old his heart is still in it.

"I like it, because when I was younger, I couldn't do as much as I can do now to help out with the hot cocoa stand," said Jordan, who adds that he’s glad the pandemic didn't stop him.

"It was one of the COVID years we actually raised more money than we ever did, which I thought was crazy, because every year my expectations are that we're going to do good. But I didn’t think we were going to do super, super, super good," he said. He credits his mom's tasty hot chocolate for a lot of the success.

"11 crockpots. I had five going at a time or six at a time then switched it and put it in a big roasting pan," said his mom, Trinna Wooster. Jordan’s stepdad says Wawa is also behind them and put nearly 25 donation boxes in store breakrooms which employees have already filled.

"They really went above and beyond for him just like the rest of our community did," said Stephen Wooster.

The toy drop off ended Saturday but Jordan is still accepting monetary donations which will be presented in a check to CHOP. Anyone who i interested should send donations through December 10th via Venmo @trinnas or Paypal @[email protected]

Funding Will Go Towards Revitalization of the State’s Revolutionary War Historic Sites in Anticipation of Nation’s Semiquincentennial Anniversary

TITUSVILLE – Governor Phil Murphy today announced a $25 million investment towards New Jersey’s Revolutionary War historic sites in preparation for the United States of America’s Semiquincentennial anniversary. The Semiquincentennial anniversary, which will take place in 2026, will mark the signing of the Declaration of Independence and our nation’s 250th year of independence.

“New Jersey’s contribution to our nation’s independence is undeniable. From the battlefields where the tide of the American Revolution turned, to the many other sites where our nation’s identity was forged, New Jersey was arguably more deeply involved in the cause of independence than any other state,” said Governor Murphy. “As we celebrate our nation’s 250th anniversary, it is important that our historic sites are prepared to welcome the hundreds of thousands of visitors that will undoubtably travel from around the world to witness these sites in person on such a momentous occasion. This investment will allow us to revitalize our historic sites and make sure we are prepared when they come.”

The $25 million investment from federal American Rescue Plan funds will be allocated to the New Jersey Department of the Treasury and distributed to Revolution NJ, in partnership with the New Jersey Historical Commission and Crossroads of the American Revolution, to help in the restoration of the following Revolutionary War sites:

“The 2nd reading of the Declaration of Independence in New Brunswick, the Battle of Monmouth, and the Crossing of the Delaware just a few steps from here which was pivotal in turning the tide of the war; New Jersey was indeed the crossroads of the American Revolution. I’m proud of my work on the Semiquincentennial Commission and passing the American Rescue Plan to ensure New Jersey’s contributions are recognized during the upcoming celebrations and that New Jersey received the funding it needs to tell its story,” said Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman. “This includes the contributions of Black and Indigenous soldiers during the war. It was an integrated regiment who ferried Washington across the Delaware on Christmas 1776. By the end of the war a full quarter of the American soldiers marching to Yorktown were Black or Indigenous. Their contributions must be remembered as we celebrate the 250-year history of the Greatest Nation on earth.”

“We are proud and grateful that Governor Murphy is making this unprecedented investment in New Jersey history. These 10 state-owned sites are centuries old and this funding will ensure that visitors today, tomorrow, and for centuries to come, will be able to engage with and appreciate the Revolutionary stories these locations help us tell,” said New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way.

“New Jersey’s role in the American Revolution is unquestionably significant,” said Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin. “The Battles of Trenton and Princeton singularly re-energized the fledging effort at perhaps the most crucial point of the war. Today’s sizable $25 million investment in capital upgrades across ten critical, state-owned sites marks a big step in the leveraging the full civic and economic potential of our state’s consequential revolutionary war history, not just in preparation for 2026 but for the years that lie ahead.”

“New Jersey has a wealth of historic sites, many of which are located here in Mercer County where the ‘Ten Crucial Days’ of the American Revolution unfolded,” said Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes. “This investment allowing for much-needed improvements to our state’s historic treasures will help spotlight for the rest of the country the central role that New Jersey played in America’s fight for independence.”

“Hopewell Township played an important role in the rich history of the founding of our country. With the 250th anniversary upcoming, this investment is critical to making New Jersey, and Hopewell Township, a heritage tourism destination. We are grateful to Governor Murphy for his leadership in ensuring that our historic sites keep their proper place in American history for the next generation,” said Mayor Courtney Peters-Manning.

“Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area is grateful for public funding for these key visitor readiness projects at sites which will serve as the initial core for Revolutionary War heritage tourism. This historic investment is only the first step in raising New Jersey’s profile as the acknowledged Crossroads of the American Revolution. As the fundraising arm of RevolutionNJ, Crossroads will be working to secure the participation of private donors to build on this crucial investment - to bring vital economic activity to our local communities by supporting and sustaining heritage tourism in New Jersey for the 250th anniversary and beyond,” said Carrie Fellows, Executive Director, Crossroads of the American Revolution Association.

“The Department of Environmental Protection’s State Park Service is grateful for and celebrates this financial investment, which will allow for important and needed improvements to state-owned historic sites in preparation for the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States,” said John Cecil, Assistant Commissioner for New Jersey’s State Parks, Forests & Historic Sites. “This significant investment will greatly improve the visitor experience, allowing visitors to learn about, marvel and cherish New Jersey’s treasured history and contributions to our country’s founding.”

NJ town rejects Chick-Fil-A as restaurant chain expands in state

SPRINGFIELD (Union) — There will be no new Chick-Fil-A along Route 22 for now after Springfield officials rejected a proposal to open a restaurant in the complex that has housed a Barnes & Noble for decades.

As reported by TapInto, the township Zoning Board unanimously passed on the fast food restaurant plan at Wednesday night’s meeting.

The bookstore has remained open for the winter holiday season, an employee confirmed by phone on Thursday, despite a closing announcement earlier this year.

Just two miles east, a Chick-Fil-A restaurant has been open since 2013 in Union Township along Route 22.

Plans were first pitched in Springfield a year ago for opening a new Chick-Fil-A on the same, westbound side of the highway, partly in response to “customer overflow” that Union has consistently seen, according to the same report.

Criticism was immediately voiced by residents about traffic flow and how such a popular restaurant would impact neighboring homes, as the commercial property sits between Route 22 and Hillside Avenue.

The same traffic and quality of life concerns were brought up in the months to come, during meetings in April and October, according to TapInto.

While not on the record in Springfield, social justice concerns were sparked about a different Chick-Fil-A, further north, also this year.

The restaurant chain was announced as a new tenant along the Garden State Parkway at the service area in Bloomfield — which two elected leaders called “incredibly disappointing” pointing to the company’s past support of anti-LGBTQ organizations.

“Chick-fil-A has a long, documented history of opposing same-sex marriage and supporting anti-LGBTQ legislators and organizations,” Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia said in a January statement, as quoted by NJ.com.

“I implore the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to reconsider this decision and to instead choose a restaurant that is more in line with our values.”

An online petition was also started in opposition to the Bloomfield rest stop plans, garnering about 2,000 signatures.

Those plans appear to remain unchanged, as the service area was temporarily shut down in August, for full demolition and revamp.

Amid polarization over the family-owned company’s unwavering “Biblical principles,” Chick-Fil-A has rapidly expanded across the state, with 57 restaurants open as of November.
