7 Coffee Shops and Cafes to Check Out in Princeton
Do you LOVE coffee? And do you love heading to coffee shops and cafes for a good cup-of-joe and some conversation with friends? Do you try to avoid the chains and find local places? Then Princeton is the place for you! There’s no shortage of cute coffee shops and great cups of coffee. Here are a few that you should put on your list to check out!
- Small World Coffee
Located at 14 Witherspoon Street, Small World Coffee serves great coffee. You can’t go wrong with one of their lattes or mochas. Of course, Small World Coffee has more than coffee. They have great smoothies and tea and a nice light menu for you to grab some tasty treats.
And you can’t help but talk about the atmosphere when you go to Small World Coffee. This coffee shop is extremely welcoming and works hard to make their shop a comfortable space for friends to gather at. There’s also live music and art shows scheduled often – so be sure to check their event calendar to stay on top of what’s happening.
- Rojo’s Roastery
Are you a coffee novice? Don’t hesitate to ask the baristas at Rojo’s to share their knowledge with you on the various drinks and brews. The baristas here are well-trained and happy to share their opinion. And with coffees from all over the world, Rojo’s Roastery takes pride in the coffee they serve. Be sure to take some coffee home with you or head to their website to order your favorite anytime!
- Chez Alice Café & Bakery
Do you want a delicious treat to go with your hot cup of coffee? Then look no further than Chez Alice Café & Bakery. Chez Alice has a great menu that will have you wanting to grab one of their Greek wraps for breakfast, a Cape Cod salad for lunch and pastries for an afternoon snack. Their coffee is tasty, and be sure to take home some macaroons as they are not to be missed.
- Cafe Vienna
This charming cafe serves Viennese coffees that you’re sure to enjoy. Customers of Cafe Vienna especially love that the cream or milk comes on the side, allowing you to control how much is added to meet your tastes. They have a great menu with light fare, serving both breakfast and lunch. Be sure to try one of their “bowls” like the Açai Bowl or the Pitaya Bowl.
- Teresa Caffe
While not a traditional coffee shop, Teresa Caffe does make some good coffee and, therefore, it makes the list. Serving espresso, caffe latte, borgia, cappuccino, americano, and doppio you will have some difficult choices to make when it comes to what coffee to drink! Of course, if you’re sitting down for breakfast, try one of their breakfast pizzas or a delicious granola parfait. And yes, you can come back for lunch or dinner!
- Jammin’ Crepes
We may be double-dipping here as Jammin’ Crepes serves Small World Coffee, but is there really anything wrong with that? Delicious coffee with savory and sweet crepes to accompany it? That’s what Jammin’ Crepes brings to Princeton. The “Sweet Potato Creperito” is delicious on the savory side and the “Classic Toasty Cinnamon” should not be missed on the sweet side. They have gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options, too!
The next time a friend calls and wants to meet for coffee, suggest one of the local places instead of that famous chain with the green and white cups. Let us know where you went and what you tried! We’d love to hear about your favorite places for a cup of coffee in Princeton.
