Finale in Cambridge's Harvard Square Has Closed

It looks like an upscale dessert spot and bakery has closed another one of its locations.

The Harvard Crimson is reporting that Finale in the Harvard Square section of Cambridge "suddenly" shuttered over the weekend after being in the Dunster Street space for 12 years. It is not known for sure why the shop closed, though the article mentions that the general manager at the Finale shop in Boston's Park Plaza thinks it may be because of upcoming construction of the Smith Campus Center (formerly the Holyoke Center), where the Harvard Square location has resided.

In addition to its Park Plaza store, Finale also has a pastry kitchen near the Harvard Business School; other locations of the shop in Brookline's Coolidge Corner and the Natick Mall are now closed, and one that had been planned for the North End a few years ago never materialized.

The address for this now-closed dessert spot and bakery in Harvard Square was: Finale, 30 Dunster Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138. The website for Finale can be found at
