Columbus Cafe in Boston's South End Is Closing

It looks like an eclectic restaurant in the South End of Boston that has been in business for about six years is apparently going to be closing its doors next month.

According to a post on the BosGuy blog, the Columbus Cafe on Columbus Avenue is going to close sometime toward the end of November. The eatery, which had been put up for sale earlier this year, first opened in the fall of 2005, offering an offbeat mix of dishes, including Swedish meatballs, calamari, deviled egg, enchiladas, Southern-style catfish, macaroni and cheese, pork chops, Moroccan lamb shank, Argentine steak, and Tuscan meatloaf.

[October 25 update: A Groupon has just been issued for the Columbus Cafe and it is good until February, 2012, so either the new restaurant that is apparently replacing the Columbus Cafe (as indicated by BosGuy) will honor the Groupon, or perhaps the Columbus Cafe will not be closing in November after all. We will try to get more information on this, with any updates being posted here.]

The address for this restaurant in the South End is: Columbus Cafe and Bar, 535 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118. The website can be found at

Looks like new construction is starting at the old Columbus Cafe location - any gossip as to what is going in?

Nothing more than gossip at this point. I did hear that the Columbus Cafe sold its liquor license to Chris Coombs for his new South End restaurant.

Spoke to the construction workers on site and it looks like Columbus Cafe will be the second location for Five Horses in Davis - to be named Five Horses South. Exciting news!

Thanks for the update! Do you know if this is public knowledge yet?
