Bluestone Lane opened its first coffee shop in August 2013, located within the sunlit atrium of Midtown’s iconic Meredith Building at 805 3rd Avenue. This inaugural store offers a respite for both blue and white collars seeking a much needed relaxing and rewarding coffee break.
This cosy café is modelled on the classic hole-in-the-wall espresso bars commonly found hidden in Melbourne, Australia’s narrow laneways which are perfect for coffee on the run or for those looking to rest their feet and enjoy a flat white in porcelain cups.
In the coffee shop, the warm, wooden aesthetic features strong references to Melbourne, with vintage Australian football images and iconic street signs adorning the walls. An eye catching vintage pattern tile and display case, made from a reclaimed Pennsylvanian Church pew, bring a touch of local grounding to the shop.
The Bluestone Lane blends and single origins are ethically sourced and Rainforest alliance certified. Our coffee is roasted by master roasters and brewed using top-of-the-line Italian La Marzocco espresso machines.
Our house blend “Maverick” is a blend of Brazil, Guatemala and Ethiopian Yirgacheffe – predominant notes of cocoa, clove and honeycomb.
Our filter blend “Flagstaff” is a truly versatile blend that is fantastic as both Hot and Cold Brew styles. Notes of cocoa nib, marzipan and molasses.
A selection of fine tea and juices are also available, as well as health-conscious seasonal and gluten-free food options baked in-house and from local purveyors. Signature dishes include the Avocado smash on thick multigrain or Gluten free toast, Toasted banana bread, Jaffles, and a Gluten-free Zucchini Loaf.
