Teresa Cafe, in Palmer Square in downtown Princeton, is constructing a new outdoor patio seating area. The new dining space is expected to open some time in July.
The new patio will seat approximately 44 diners, and will be accessed by a new side door into the restaurant. The new space will significantly expand the capacity of the popular eatery, as well as adding a new opportunity for Princeton residents for ‘al fresco‘ dining.
Teresa is part of the Terra Momo group, which also owns the Terra Momo Bread Company, Mediterra, and Enoterra in Kingston. The owners plan to play music onto the patio, and apply for an extension to their liquor license so that they can serve alcoholic beverages outside.
The new dining area will operate on the sidewalk between Teresa and the ‘Alchemist and Barrister’ pub. No parking spaces will be taken away to add the patio.

This is a long time coming. I always saw that spot and thought it could be better utilized.
Love Teresa’s BTW. They are a bike friendly restaurant. I liked to stop in there and grab a small bite after a ride before heading home on the train. It would be great to be able to sit outside and keep a closer eye on my bike.
I’m all for more outdoor seating, but is anyone else concerned about the design of the patio roof which overwhelms the view of the beautiful archway connecting Palmer Square to Witherspoon Street?
Archi Buff, you are totally correct! That arbor is totally unnecessary.
