Peet's Coffee Is Moving into the Goody Glover's Space in Boston's North End

It looks like a California-based coffee roaster and retailer is taking over a space in Boston's North End where an Irish pub and restaurant currently resides.

According to a Twitter post from @NorthEndBoston, Peet's Coffee is "looking to replace Goody Glover's" on Salem Street, with the note saying that an abutters meeting will be taking place on October 20 at the site of the restaurant to look into the proposal. No other information has been given at this point in time; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

Currently, Peet's Coffee has locations in Brookline, Cambridge, Lexington, Newton Centre, and Wellesley (with new locations planned for several sites in Boston and Brookline), along with cafe/bank collaborations called Capital One 360 Cafe in Boston and Brookline. The website for the Peet's chain is at

The address for Goody Glover's (and the new location of Peet's Coffee) is 50 Salem Street, Boston, MA, 02113. Its website can be found at

[October 29 update: The Boston Globe reports that Goody Glover's will close on Friday (October 31) and that the owner of the pub says Peet's is indeed taking over the space.]
