Bluestone Lane, an Australian-style café, opened its third Philadelphia-area location on May 23, at the King of Prussia Mall.
Influenced by the renowned coffee hub of Melbourne, Australia, Bluestone Lane centers on creating a culturally immersive coffee experience, where customers leave feeling like a local. Bluestone Lane KOP is located in the new Savor upscale food court, next to Shake Shack.
Australia native and café founder Nick Stone opened Bluestone Lane’s first location in New York City in July 2013. Since then, he has expanded the concept to 14 cafes and coffee shops, including the first out-of-market full-service café at Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square in 2015, and the second out-of-market coffee shop at Philadelphia’s City Hall in 2016. Bluestone Lane KOP completes the trio.
“The days of having to drink an average cup of joe are over. Philly is a city seeped in history and one which Bluestone Lane has been proud to call home for two years. We firmly put down our roots in November 2016 with the opening of our second premium coffee and cafe experience—Bluestone Lane City Hall,” explains Stone. “It is important for our locals to feel like family, to step into a Bluestone Lane not only for the world-class coffee and healthy food offerings, but to take a break from their daily routine in a place where we know our locals by name.”
