Coffee and tea fans, take heed: there's a new spot in town to get your fix. Located at 227 Front St. (between California St. & Halleck St.) in the Financial District, the new arrival is called Bluestone Lane.
Bluestone Lane is an Australian-inspired coffee shop with outposts throughout New York City and Pennsylvania. This is the company's West Coast debut, and plans are already in the works to open a second San Francisco location in Union Square.
For hot and cold coffee drinks, expect to see a variety of espresso mainstays like mochas, lattes, flat whites, and cappuccinos. There is also a selection of loose leaf teas on hand, like lemongrass ginger, China sencha, and more.
The shop is also known for its "wellness lattes," in varieties like matcha (Japanese green tea), the turmeric-infused "Golden Latte," and a beet latte made with almond milk and dehydrated beet powder and topped with cocoa powder.
On the food side, the healthy Aussie fare features a selection of toasts, seasonal "wellness bowls," and convenient grab-and-go items. Look for items like avocado toast; a breakfast bowl with red quinoa, feta cheese, and a poached egg; and a bacon and egg roll with spinach, tomato, and house-made chutney.
With a five-star rating out of 11 reviews on Yelp so far, Bluestone Lane is on its way to developing a local fan base.
Yummy Y., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on November 11th, said: "Great spot with top quality coffee! My ideal spot for a laid back brunch on the weekends. Also works great for lunch on the go. Beautifully lit, serene vibe, and and very friendly service!"
Yelper Tristan L. added: “I have been hankering for some true blue fair dinkim Aussie coffee since coming to SF. Thankfully Bluestone Lane has finally opened in the city, with their cappuccinos with mandatory cocoa powder.”
And Ihsuan Y. said: "Finally, a Bluestone in SF! Been waiting ever since the announcement earlier this spring, and and fortunately the cafe ended up at a convenient location in the Financial District!"
Bluestone Lane is now open at 227 Front St., so swing on by to take a peek.
