6: Casual Café in New Haven
Daytime Dating New Haven
"Must love... coffee"
44 Crown Street New Haven 06510
If you’re single, swiping through possible prospects on several online date apps, and afraid to devote an entire Friday, or Saturday night to a date with a stranger, Connecticut Socials would like to recommend Cedarhurst Café as a cool, cozy and casual meeting spot!
This quant café located in New Haven’s Ninth Square is so much more than just a typical coffee shop.
Cedarhurst Café offers custom crafted coffee, tea, breakfast (all day), sandwiches, salads, vegetarian dishes, custom smoothies, and fresh baked goods! Open weekdays 7:30am-5pm, and weekends 8-5pm.
The Tanzanian Furaha (light roast) coffee will definitely make you happy, even if your date doesn’t - as the name 'Furaha' means happiness! It is quite mellow, and brews smooth with a light nutty flavor. If you’re not a coffee drinker, fear not! Cedarhurst will blend one of their signature smoothies with fresh fruit, etc. OR they will customize any smoothie item to your liking!
For a quick refreshing energy boost after a workout, we recommend avocado, almond milk, and a little honey in a smoothie. Maybe pair it with a bacon, egg and cheese on an English muffin or try a refreshing Avocado salad (both pictured below).
If your date is going well, Cedarhurst has plenty of comfortable seating. Grab a bar stool by the window, eat, and admire the gorgeous architecture that surrounds this delicious little nook in New Haven. Or, if you’re feeling anxious about online dating, take a load off on a giant yoga ball. It may not be customary to bounce while you eat, but it’s definitely a good conversation starter.
The rustic, homey atmosphere Cedarhurst has to offer is the perfect place for not just a first date, but any date. Still afraid of admitting you’ve dabbled in online dating? Don’t be! Because if it weren’t for one popular online dating site, Cedarhurst owners Teri Bernet and Tom Panzella would have never met!
So, as the weekend approaches take a leap of faith, and meet up with that special someone that matches your online dating criteria. If the date doesn’t go well, hey at least there was fresh coffee, good vibes, and great food!
