Peet's Coffee and Tea May Open in Former Francesca's Space in Boston's South End

It looks like a California-based coffee roaster and retailer will continue to expand in the Boston area, with a new shop possibly planned for the city's South End neighborhood.

BostInno is reporting that Peet's Coffee & Tea is looking to open on Tremont Street, moving into the space where Francesca's Cafe had been for nearly 20 years until closing last August. As we reported earlier, the chain of coffee spots is opening a new location in Beacon Hill and is also going to be involved with cafe/bank hybrids called Capital One 360 Cafe, with the first one coming to Boylston Street in the Back Bay and others planned for Downtown Crossing, Harvard Square in Cambridge, and Coolidge Corner in Brookline.

Peet's Coffee & Tea, which first started out in Berkeley, CA, in 1966, currently has locations in Brookline, Cambridge, Lexington, Newton Centre, and Wellesley.

The address for this proposed shop in the South End would be: Peet's Coffee & Tea, 564 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02118. The website for Peet's can be found at

Thanks to food writer MC Slim JB for bringing this to our attention.
