We have been coming to Bluestone for many years, mostly for breakfast. It is a cozy place with a friendly staff, and most importantly, the food is very good. The menu for breakfast has many egg or omelette choices as well as pancakes, French toast, and a few other selections. My personal favorite is the poached egg served on smashed avocado with toast and a side of stewed tomatoes and mushrooms. The coffee is excellent whether regular or specialty. There are two rooms with both tables and booths, though on weekend mornings it can get crowded at prime time. The lunches are very good as well with the addition of interesting specials. There is metered parking on the street and in the lot behind, though free parking is available on the side street.

Stopped here with my friend and his 3 kids. Got a booth, and ordered our food. Took no time at all to come, but was definitely fresh! Pancakes were soft and fluffy, waffle was delicious, and the eggs royale - spot on! Cute place, great atmosphere, good food and reasonable prices. What more do you want from a local cafe? Will be back!

Was staying at a friends house in the location and she recommended this spot. On walking in was surprised and delighted to see tofu scramble on the breakfast menu. However, the bread came out pre buttered!? Note to staff, when someone orders tofu scramble there is an above average chance they are vegan, so don't butter their bread. Having said that, the scramble and accompanying potatoes and onions were gorgeous (although i'd not be 100% convinced they were cooked in anything vegan).

Really nice little spot and seemed to have a decent menu for the non vegan diner. Worth a visit for sure.

There is a good deal right about Bluestone. It is the only "diner" on Watchung Plaza and it manages to create enough charm inside to not "feel" like one. Also, the ratings I am giving are strongly rooted in the superior table service we received. Our server not only seemed to enjoy his job but he was genuinely social and attentive. The menu offerings are varied and, unlike a diner, it doesn't offer all that the world has to offer in terms of food. And I like that. It is pleasantly reserved and it spares you the confusion those other "we-do-it-all" menus can create. In all probability there is something on it you want and most likely you will be pleased with your choice. I selected the Santa Fe Omelet which, according to my wife, was made how it should be made - I personally like an omelet that hasn't been browned by the skillet and I felt like the sausage and onions took over the eggs population wise. If this is the way you like your omelets then all is well. She went with an Avocado Smash and appeared pleased with it. The presentation was lovely as well. At the end of the day, I would return here because there are two full rooms in which you can spread out and, if it pleases you, there are booths available if you are looking for more privacy. Go here.

A gem of a place, not far from the Watchung Ave Commuter Rail station. Great coffee and food -- I had the smashed avocado with poached eggs. Delightful. Good service, pleasant - what not to like?
