At 128 West State Street, conveniently across from the New Jersey State House, Cafe 128 is a great spot for workers to meet, locals to mingle, and passers-by to stop in for a nice, relaxing lunch break. In the cafe’s basement level interior, the staff are friendly and serve an assortment of breakfast and lunch foods, baked goods, fresh fruits, coffees, and other beverages. 

George Florio, an owner of Cafe 128, describes it as being:

“friendly, neighbourhood-y, and much-needed.”

The social gathering aspect of the cafe and its location provides a perfect blend to the picturesque and cozy setting on West State Street. With classic, old fashion-esque decor, low lighting, soft music, and the ever-present scent of something brewing or cooking in the kitchen, the cafe attracts loads of customers everyday during lunch hours. Being directly across the street from the State House, customers have a choice of enjoying their food at the outdoor seating area during warmer months and basking in the scenery of Downtown Trenton.

With an objective to give a new meaning to “Capitol perk”, Cafe 128 has undoubtedly become a hit among Downtown Trentonians. In its three years of operation, the cafe has been and will continue to unify us, one coffee at a time. Don’t be surprised when you walk in and it feels like a home away from home. Simply stop in, have a look at the menu, and simmer down in the presence of your neighbors.
