Stopped by the Bon Appétit in Newtown this weekend to try out the savory crepes. They didn't have exactly what I wanted on the menu but offered to add any fillings I liked. They were wonderful, especially the mushrooms. Nice selection of sandwiches as well.
Saw that they were having a cheese and pate tasting class on Tuesday night so we signed up. And guess what? It was free! Five different types of cheeses and four pâtés. Unbelievable! We had a great time.
We have been going to their store in Princeton for decades. They told us that we could order from the Princeton store and pick up in Newtown. Just phenomenal. The shop is in the back of the building so easy to miss. Not a huge grocery selection yet. Hope that it grows as they pick up clientele. BYOB, but there is a large wine and liquor store right next door. How could I give them anything but a 5 star rating?
Crepes are great. Ingredients look fresh. Staff is friendly. Place is spotless.
Bon Appetit has a South State Street, Newtown, PA, address, but if you look for it along that historic main street you will not find it. In fact, it is in the same building as the new State Store, but in the back without signage on the primary boulevard. So, drive down the driveway that is the extension of Penn Street, toward the creek, and you will find it on the northwest corner of the liquor store edifice. There is parking along the building, and a larger lot a bit further away, but still well within walking distance.
The space is bright and airy, with glass exterior walls on two sides, and a twelve foot ceiling. There are a half dozen tables inside, and three more outside. The waterway is overgrown and can't be seen, but on a quiet morning, it can be heard gurgling its way toward the wild Neshaminy. Service this morning was provided by Joann, who was chief, chef and busser. She was friendly, and easily answered my questions about this new café in Newtown (there are shops in Princeton and Plainsboro, NJ, too).
Breakfast offerings are limited, but I jumped at the bacon, egg and cheese (gruyere) on croissant sandwich. It was excellent. The large croissant was flaky and had a fresh, buttery taste. The combo of bacon, nutty cheese, and flat grilled scrambled egg, had a happy Friday party in my mouth. I ate slowly to savor the moment. The coffee from Shady Brook Roasters in North Jersey was an enjoyably strong washdown and pick me up.
Bon Appetit Newtown is a welcome addition to the community. Open at 7:30 am, it is ready for breakfast when you are. The lunch possibilities also looked interesting. Will make my way back for that soon enough.
Recognized them from their other locations around the Princeton area. Stopped in for breakfast and got a bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant with a cappucino. The sandwich was delicious and the drink was, as always with Bon Appetit, delicious and well-made!
Was waited on and served my food promptly by their friendly staff who, after offering me several delicious sounding options, I decided to go with an old standby. Definitely try one out as it beats all the other breakfast sandwiches around. If you love this place, which you will, I highly suggest you check out their main store in Princeton as well as their smaller cafe a little north of there.
I had so much excitement for meeting my friend here for coffee but was left disappointed :( I asked which of the baked goods was most recently baked and they said they baked the scones just this morning. But neither of the girls could tell me if they were apricot or raisin and which of the two was the one they just baked. I ended up choosing the least brown looking one (which should have been a clue to deter me!) and was assured it was the raisin one. It was apricot...and the whole bottom was way over baked (just shy of burnt). I ended up eating just the top part but it was pretty dry. I bake scones so I know it was just simply over baked. :( The croissants are brought in from Brooklyn but I'm not sure how often. My friend had the croissant egg and ham sandwich and said it was pretty good. The coffee was good too. I'd like to go back and give it a second chance but right now, the baked goods left me disappointed :(
