Calling all Princeton locals to check out Bluestone Lane, an Australian-inspired cafe that recently opened on November 30 in the Nassau Park Pavilion. This opening marks Bluestone’s third opening in the Garden State, soon to become a Jersey staple. Reminiscent of Australia’s vibrant cafe culture, this eatery pushes healthy and delectable options perfect for the early riser on-the-go or the brunch connoisseur. 

The Menu 

Expect a diverse menu composed of popular signatures and exciting new additions exclusive to Princeton. Stick to an old favorite and enjoy an avocado smash toast topped with punchy feta, heirloom tomato, and fragrant herbs. Try the new breakfast nachos, nestled under a generous medley of pico de gallo, feta, drizzled spicy aioli and two sunnyside eggs. The classic Rainbow Bowl, tossed with fresh veggies and lemon vinaigrette, is updated with herbaceous ingredients to deliver a decidedly autumnal flavor profile.

Its tranquil nature invites locals to escape their fast-paced lives and slow down to appreciate the little things. Notice the artful milk foam design on your flat white and the flow of attentive service circulating the cafe.
