Pavement Coffee House Is Opening in the Back Bay

An offshoot of a small chain of Boston cafes will be opening soon near where the Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods meet. The Pavement Coffee House, which is part of the Espresso Royale Caffe family, looks to be moving into the spot on Boylston Street where Jack's Drum Shop used to be. Based on the menus at the Espresso Royale shops, the Pavement Coffee House will probably feature sandwiches and bagels (from Bagel Rising, which is based in Allston) as well as a variety of coffees.

Espresso Royale Caffe currently has three locations in Boston, including one on Newbury Street in the Back Bay, another on Gainsborough Street near Northeastern University, and a third on Commonwealth Avenue at Boston University. All three feature bagels from Bagel Rising.

[April 13, 2010 update: Based on a note from Pavement Coffee House on their Facebook page today, they are going to be opening on Monday, April 19.]

The address for this soon-to-open cafe in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston will be: Pavement Coffee House, 1096 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215. A blog for both the Pavement Coffee House and Espresso Royale Caffe can be found at:
