Cuppacoffee (a Coffee Shop with Australian Meat Pies) Is Opening in Boston

A new espresso bar is on its way to downtown Boston, and it will be serving meat pies along with coffee.

Eater Boston is reporting that Cuppacoffee is going to be opening at the site of the Mobil gas station across from the Haymarket T stop (on Merrimac Street). The article states that the new spot will feature Australian meat pies as well as coffee from Hopkinton-based Red Barn Coffee Roasters, and it will make espresso using its own blend of beans. A check on Cuppacoffee's website shows that the shop will be run by Todd Moore and his wife Michelle, with Todd mentioning that he comes from Sydney, Australia.

This will not be the first spot in Boston to feature Australian meat pies; a pair of such places (KO Catering and Pies in South Boston and KO Pies at the Shipyard in East Boston) opened in 2010 and 2012, respectively.

[May 15, 2013 update: According to a Twitter post, Cuppacoffee is planning to soft-open sometime next week. (Thanks to Eater Boston for bringing this to our attention.]

[May 20, 2013 update: Grub Street Boston states that the official opening date for Cuppacoffee is Tuesday, May 28, with a soft opening expected over the Memorial Day weekend.]

The address for this new coffee shop in Boston is: Cuppacoffee, 1 Merrimac Street, Boston, MA, 02114. The website can be found at
