I like these little cafes. Chez Alice is no disappointment. Had a superior BLT. There was ample bacon and it was properly cooked and warm in my sandwich. Layered perfectly. Not just piled insensitively between the bread slices. Nice crunchy lettuce and bright tomatoes. Accompanied with hot coffee. Saw them deliver a spectacular cake to another patron. A great part...

Very comfortable breakfast nook with really great coffee, terrific muffins - the french toast muffin is authentic to its name and lives up to the anticipation - and really terrific fresh made breakfast sandwiches - priced right - highly recommend.

If we are planning to picnic in the area, we get sandwiches and dessert from Chez Alice. The servings are generous, everything fresh and tasty. As the "bakery" part of the name implies, desserts are wonderful. We had a "fancy" picnic, and, for a very reasonable price, they prepared excellent bagged lunches for a dozen people. This is one of... More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. The staff is not the most personable, but not rude or anything. They could smile, and it would have made this would have been 5 star review. I can say the chipotle chicken wrap is a must. Coffee for desert was excellent.

Very nice assortment of pastries, cheeses and a good spot to just stop, relax, and enjoy some tasty morsels. Right off Palmer Square in Princeton and a superb place to stop.

Located on Princeton's Palmer Square this is a small locals favorite that I was lucky to stumble upon while in town. I had a delicious ham, brie, and apple panini followed by a fantastic chocolate & walnut rugelach.

They are really good at this business. I order my daughter's birthday cakes from them. Everybody loves and asks where it is from. Not very sweet like many other cakes and very good dressing. Their carrot cakes are perfect as well. they have sandwich options, too. But I have not tried them. Definitely advise...
