RJ Gourmet Is Opening in East Cambridge

It looks like a new cafe and coffeehouse is going to be opening in East Cambridge.

According to their Twitter page, RJ Gourmet is planning to open on Cambridge Street, with the address indicating that it will be moving into the space where Timeless BMX used to be (near the 5th Street intersection). It appears that the new cafe will offer coffee, espresso, tea, and pastries, with a Chowhound poster also indicating that sandwiches may be served as well. A recent City of Cambridge License Commission Hearing mentions that RJ Gourmet will have seating for about 15 people, and its hours of operation will apparently be 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM Monday through Saturday.

Expect RJ Gourmet to open in January of 2012.
