    The Blueprint Cafe

    Located on 369 Raymond Blvd, The Blueprint Cafe is a hidden gem within the Ironbound. Yes, there are several delicious cafes and bakeries within the neighborhood to satisfy the most outlandish of whims. But the Blueprint is set apart because of its noticeable lack of Spanish and Portuguese culture. 

    It was opened by Carole Dubois and Roy Felipe in march of 2018. Its beautiful and eclectic taste is a haven for local residents looking for a cup-o- joe as well as local business men and women. It offers catering for functions as well as a welcoming environment conducive to after work gatherings.

    Although they do not currently have a liquor license to serve 21+ beverages, it is in the words. In the meantime they can be enjoyed as a BYOB. 

    The Blueprint also has outdoor seating, which throughout the city of Newark, in general, is very specials. Another big feature for artists of all types is it's open mic night, every Thursday from 6pm-9pm. Open Mic allows for musical and written word artists of all types to get their movement and express themselves. 

    So if you're either a poet or a singer (or anything in between) then get down too The Blueprint Cafe.
