Brewery
$$
“This is an underground gastro pub / brewery/ night spot They are a brewery and have a basic menu that they do well. The bands at night have a good local following. ”

Café
$$
“This restaurant is more restaurant than cafe. It has a good menu and typically a long wait to get a seat. It is small on the inside, but charming with outdoor scenic seating. It's in Palmer Square and the heart of Princeton. BYOB Other Princeton Restaurants owned but the Momo family are Mediterra, Eno Terra, and Terra Momo.”
