L'Aroma Cafe in Boston's Back Bay Is Being Replaced by Thinking Cup

[Ed note: This article was updated on December 13 to reflect confirmation that Thinking Cup will indeed be moving into the space.]

A bakery and cafe in the Back Bay of Boston has shut its doors, but another location of the spot west of the city remains open.

The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting (via @mayahauer) that L'Aroma Cafe on Newbury Street is shuttered, with a Facebook post from the place indicating that it actually closed in early October. The blog also mentions that Thinking Cup--which has locations across from Boston Common and in the North End--may be going into the space, but this has not been confirmed as of yet.

[December 13 update: Eater Boston has confirmed that Thinking Cup is taking over the space vacated by L'Aroma. Expect to see a mid-January opening.]

[April 15, 2014 update: According to a Facebook post, the new Thinking Cup is now open on Newbury Street.]

The location of L'Aroma Cafe on Spencer Street in West Newton is still open for business.

The address for the now-closed L'Aroma Cafe (and new Thinking Cup) is 85 Newbury Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for the West Newton location of L'Aroma is at while the website for Thinking Cup is at
