The Blue Bottle Café opened its doors in March 2006. Shortly after opening, the owners, Rory and Aaron Philipson were informed that the restaurant had been reviewed by the New York Times. Karla Cook, the writer of the article, jokingly asked the duo, “Are you ready for what’s about to happen?” They were indeed, and continue to offer seasonal, creative and delicious menus in their little blue house in Hopewell.
