Finagle a Bagel in Boston's Center Plaza Is Closing

It looks like another location of a local group of bagel shops is shutting down.

According to a licensing board page within the City of Boston website, Finagle a Bagel at Center Plaza in downtown Boston is planning to close in December, with the post saying that they have canceled their common victualler license. It appears that existing locations within MGH, in Boston's Back Bay, and the kiosk within the Kinko's building in Chestnut Hill remain open, though their website shows that their other Chestnut Hill shop is temporarily closed. Finagle a Bagel's products can also be found at various grocery stores in the region, including Roche Bros., Whole Foods, Shaw's, Market Basket, and others.

A number of Finagle a Bagel cafes have shuttered over the years, with locations in Boston's Financial District, Tremont Street by Boston Common, Brookline's Coolidge Corner, Burlington, Cambridge's Harvard Square, East Cambridge, Charlestown, Swampscott, Wayland, West Roxbury, and others all being out of business.

The address for this soon-to-close bagel shop in Boston is: Finagle a Bagel, 1 Center Plaza, Boston, MA, 02108. The website for the company can be found at

[December 10 update: According to a post from the Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog, Finagle a Bagel at Center Plaza closes on Friday, December 18.]
