Per a thread in the Jersey City subreddit, Bread Stone Cafe will be moving into the former City Bagel space at 301 Grove Street in Jersey City. A sign on the front of the spot reads ‘Coming Soon Bread Stone Cafe December 10’ — hinting at a December 10th opening. Upon further research, a job listing on Glassdoor also revealed a (now expired) job listing for a Cook/Prep at Bread Stone Cafe in Jersey City.

The space is a historic two-story home that’s been around since the 1800s and has been used for a variety of different things. It “sports original wide-plank pine wood floors, several fireplaces, and a backyard patio,” according to a Jersey Digs article about City Bagel from 2022.
