CuppaCoffee Is Opening in Boston's Back Bay

It looks like an "Australian-inspired" coffee shop that has a store in downtown Boston is expanding to another part of the city.

A few months after announcing that it is opening by the Ink Block complex in the South End [Ed Note--now open], it now appears that CuppaCoffee is planning to open in the Back Bay as well, according to an article from Eat Boston. It is not yet known where in the Back Bay CuppaCoffee will open, though a Craigslist job post indicates that it will debut sometime this summer.

[July 30 update: A Licensing Board page within the City of Boston website mentions that a Back Bay location of CuppaCoffee is coming to 699 Boylston Street, and that it will be a kiosk within a gym--possibly BFX Studio, which is in that building. It appears that this is the CuppaCoffee location that had been mentioned here earlier, as a Facebook post from the place mentions Boylston Street as the third location, though it is not known if meat pies will be offered at this spot; as soon as we find out more, we will post another update here. (The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, August 6.)]

[March 22, 2016 update: A message sent from CuppaCoffee indicates that the new shop in the Back Bay is hoping to open before Marathon Monday (April 18), and it will indeed be offering meat pies in addition to coffee.]

[April 17, 2016 update: According to a tweet from Eater Boston, the new CuppaCoffee in the Back Bay opens tomorrow (Monday, April 18).]

CuppaCoffee opened its first shop in Haymarket in the spring of 2013, offering Australian meat pies, coffee, and more. Its website can be found at http://www.trycuppacoffee.com/
