Nu Cafe to Open in Somerville's Union Square

It appears that a Worcester cafe is going to be expanding into the Boston area.

Eater Boston is reporting (via a planning staff report page) that Nu Cafe is looking to open in the Union Square section of Somerville, with the shop coming to a new condo development called 197 Union Square. The article and the report mention that the coffee shop/cafe would have seating for 120 and a total of 3,760 square feet of space on the first floor of the complex, and that it would offer salads, sandwiches, baked goods, coffee, and smoothies. It does not appear that an opening date has been given for the place as of yet.

The original location of Nu Cafe is on Chandler Street (Route 122) in the Beaver Brook section of Worcester.

The address for this upcoming coffee shop in Union Square is: Nu Cafe, 197 Washington St, Somerville, MA 02143. The website for the Worcester location can be found at

[November 28 update: Eater Boston states that Nu Cafe will be having a grand opening party for its new location in Somerville on Saturday, December 3.]
