Lamplighter Brewing Co. Opening in Cambridge; Will Include Longfellows Coffee Shop

Two years ago, we reported that a brewery was on its way to Cambridge and that it would include a taproom and a brewbar. Now we have learned that the taproom/brewbar space will actually be a place that starts off the day as a coffee and pastry shop.

According to an article from Eater Boston, Lamplighter Brewing Co. is getting ready to debut on Broadway about midway between Central Square, Kendall Square, and Inman Square, with the brewing process possibly starting during the first week of June, customers being able to start filling growlers later in the month, and the taproom opening sometime in July. EB notes that Longfellows will sublease the taproom area Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM and Saturday from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM, with the business offering coffee, espresso, pastries, waffles, and house-made sodas in what will be a community space, and that the space will them transition to the taproom, which will offer such items as hot dogs, tater tots, and beer.

The address for Lamplighter (and Longfellows) is 284 Broadway, Cambridge, MA, 02139. The website for the brewery can be found at while the website for Longfellows is at
