Bluestone Lane’s Upper East Side Café is the most unique and interesting cafe we have created. Located in the heart of Museum Mile, with a 5th Ave address and opposite the E90th Street entrance to Central Park, this store is housed adjacent to the beautiful historic Church of the Heavenly Rest. Situated in a historic 19th-century church, this spot — designed by Julia Sullivan of Caswell Design —offers Bluestone's Australian-style espresso and stellar avocado toast, served from a sea-blue subway-tiled counter (hand-crafted tiles made by Mercury Mosaics) under soaring sandstone archways.

Bluestone Lane was exclusively selected as the premium coffee and café retailer to the Dumbo Heights development, an innovative mixed use urban campus that is set to become New York’s leading technology firm campus which will include Etsy Inc., global headquarters, Frog Design and WeWork.
