Bagel Rising in Allston Is Becoming Pavement Coffeehouse
It looks like a bagel place in Allston is going to morph into another location of a group of coffeehouses that is under the same ownership.
According to a Licensing Board page within the City of Boston website, Bagel Rising on Commonwealth Avenue is changing over to Pavement Coffeehouse, making this the fifth location of the coffee place to open in Boston. The other Pavement shops, which can be found on Newbury Street in the Back Bay, Gainsborough Street near Northeastern University, Boylston Street by the Back Bay/Fenway border, and Commonwealth Avenue by Boston University, all replaced locations a now-defunct group of coffee shops called Espresso Royale.
[June 23 update: Based on a couple of comments below (and confirmed by the editor for Eater Boston), the new Pavement Coffeehouse will continue to offer bagels, though one of the comments mentions that the bagels will apparently be under the Pavement name rather than Bagel Rising.]
[July 28 update: Eater Boston states that Bagel Rising in Allston is now closed, with Pavement Coffeehouse planning to move in (after renovations are done) at the end of August.]
[September 10 update: A new article from Eater Boston mentions that Pavement Coffeehouse is now open in the former Bagel Rising space.]
The address for Bagel Rising (and the soon-to-be Pavement Coffeehouse) in Allston is 1243 Commonwealth Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134. The website for Pavement is at http://www.pavementcoffeehouse.com/
