#HipNJ visits 128 West State Café

#HipNJ visited 128 West State Café, a new meeting place in the heart of Historic Trenton, to learn how they are giving new meaning to “Capitol Perk.”

“The idea was to appeal to the business community,” owner Dale Florio states. People along West State Street began asking for a breakfast and lunch café that would serve as a gathering place across from the State Capitol, and 128 West State Café was born.

“The idea was to have healthy, fresh food,” Florio states of the café’s unique menu. “There’s some variety there, which people seem to enjoy,” café manager Ando Dell says.

The staff has been there since the beginning, which adds to the café’s warm and welcoming environment. “We’re bringing people together, and it has become the meeting place we hoped it would be,” Florio says.
