The Bridge Café
Hunterdon County’s best kept secret for lunch.
Frenchtown’s train station was an enormously important asset to the town and surrounding community. The line was the Belvidere-Delaware Railroad (BEL-Del). It was built in approximately 1863 and continued to be viable as a freight only line until 1976.
Today the Bridge Café flourishes in the walls of the once booming station with some renovations and improvements to make it operable as a small restaurant and bakery.
The magnificent location has sweeping views of the Delaware River, Frenchtown-Uhlerstown Bridge, and important architectural and historic buildings in town. It offers the visitor a memorable experience while dining either inside the charming building that exists today, or on one of the outdoor patios.
The staff deserves honorable mention as they are an integral part of the success of this café, one member being an original from opening day! While some members are trained as teens for their first job, others dedicate themselves day in and day out with outstanding attitudes ready to serve their loyal and new customers.
If you should find yourself in or near Frenchtown, make an effort to drop in to the Bridge Café. You will be very welcome here.
