Best Avocado Toast Near Campus: Bluestone Lane
Whether you live close to Washington Square Park or are housing near Astor Place, you’ll always have a place for avocado toast and aesthetically pleasing drinks: Bluestone Lane.
The avocado smash is served on toast from Balthazar (yum!) with tahini, heirloom cherry tomatoes, feta, sunflower sprouts and e.v.o.o. Even better, you also get the choice to add a poached egg and/or smoked salmon. I admit, I always get both. To my gluten free friends, Bluestone Lane also offers gluten free toast!
Of course, again, you can’t forget about the drinks.
The two locations closest to campus are the coffee shop in Astor Place and the collective café in Greenwich Avenue. The only difference between these two locations is that while the collective café offers brunch and a menu full of options, the coffee shop on Astor offers a small range of choices and no egg or salmon to add to your avocado smash. Besides that let-down, I tend to frequent both locations quite often, and rest assured, I am never disappointed!
