Caffe Nero to Open in Historic Burnham Building in Boston's Downtown Crossing
A chain of Italian-style coffee shops based in Europe is planning to open a new shop in the heart of downtown Boston, moving into an historic space that is part of a new complex.
The bldup.com site mentions that Caffe Nero is opening at the Millennium Tower development in Downtown Crossing, with The Boston Herald reporting that the 2,200-square-foot shop will reside in the Burnham building, which had formerly been home to Filene's and today includes a location of Roche Bros. Once it opens, the new cafe will join others in Boston's Downtown Crossing (Millennium Place), the South End, Longwood, and Jamaica Plain, along with upcoming stores in Fort Point and in Wellesley.
A high-end Japanese restaurant called PABU will also be opening at the development, moving onto two floors of the Millennium Tower.
