Bluestone Lane’s financial district location certainly wins the award for most creative use of space. They’re occupying part of a building entrance, subdividing it in a way that allows the building to still use it as an emergency exit. You sort of have to see it to believe it. and given the dearth of quality coffee in the financial district, we certainly should not complain!
Brewing with SightGlass beans on a LaMarzocco machine, these folks pulled one of the creamiest shots I’ve had in some time, with a really broad palate and beautiful crema. The coffee is top notch.
In addition to the usual pastry menu, they offer several gluten free options. Their specialty seems to be their ‘avo smash’ an avocado sandwich on hearty bread with plenty of optional extras. Sadly, I ended up eating lunch before getting here, but the it looked great.
Decor is eclectic to say the least. It is somewhat Australian-themed, including vintage aussie beer cans, oddly juxtaposed with RC Cola cans featuring baseball players. Lots of hero shots of rugby players, perhaps from the ’70’s, and who fans would no doubt recognize (sorry).
At any rate, if you’re in the financial district looking for quality caffeine, Bluestone Lane should be near the top of your list!
