New cafe coming to Witherspoon Street in Princeton

A new coffee shop is slated to replace the More Cafe at the corner of Witherspoon Street and Spring Street in downtown Princeton.

The cafe will be called “Cafe Eclair” and will sell Illy coffee and other items. Illy, the Italian coffee company, partners with independent coffee shop owners, and is also has its own Italian coffee bar shops.

The More Cafe has been closed for almost a year. In November of 2016, a two-alarm fire damaged the cafe, Sakura Express and the Silver Shop. A plastic bucket used for cigarette butts caught fire, then the floor caught fire and spread across all three businesses.

Sakura Express and the Silver Shop were able to re-open, but the More Cafe remained closed.

We will post more details on the opening and the business owner as they become available.
