Rox Cafe Is Opening in Newton Highlands

The people behind a couple of Boston-area diners are opening a cafe, with this spot taking over the space where another cafe had been.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Rox Cafe is coming to Newton Highlands, with the eatery moving into the former Bakers' Best spot on Lincoln street. (Bakers' Best closed their cafe in December of 2011, though their catering operation remains open.) The article says that the new cafe will serve breakfast lunch and dinner, and will have seating as well as a bar and a market/takeout area. No specific opening date has been given as of yet, as permit approvals and a long-term lease for the space still need to go through.

[July 1 update: The Newton TAB states that Rox Cafe is planning to open sometime this summer.]

[July 25 update: A job post on the Craigslist site indicates that Rox Cafe is going to be opening next week.]

[August 8 update: According to its website, Rox Cafe is now open. (Thanks to the Boston Globe for bringing this to our attention.) The website is at http://www.roxdiner.com/roxcafe]

The folks who will be running Rox Cafe also own Rox Diner in West Roxbury and Newtonville.
