Hidden in the scenic woodlands and agricultural meadows of Middlesex County lies the historic Cranbury Township.
The village is home to a variety of restaurants, bakery’s, deli’s, and cafe’s. The Cranbury Inn, established in 1780, offers a complete fine dining experience and is a very popular establishment with locals and visitors. Teddy’s Restaurant, Molto Bene Caffe e Mercato and Zinna’s Bistro provide a diversity of cuisine for food lovers.
Antique shops, jewelry stores, florists and boutiques line the streets of downtown square.
Walking tours along Main Street, through the National Historic District, will guide you through three centuries of culture and heritage. Whether you're standing at the Cranbury Brook site of General George Washington’s encampment, or walking past the recently dedicated Town Hall, the architecture and robust heritage are truly inspiring.
Brainerd Lake and Dam is a vibrant focal point in the center of the township and reflects the picturesque landscape with which it is encompassed. Residents and visitors partake in casual walks around the lake and enjoy summer concerts by it’s banks in neighboring Village Park. Cranbury’s 4th of July Celebration over Brainerd Lake is well known throughout the state. Once the snow begins to fall, the town centerpiece is transformed into a community ice rink for families to hone their skating skills and celebrate the holidays.
