Pavement Coffeehouse Opening New Location in Allston-Brighton

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a local group of coffeehouses is opening a new location, with this one being very close to the Charles River.

According to a source, Pavement Coffeehouse is planning to open on Western Avenue near where Lower Allston and Brighton meet, with the address given indicating that it would be a short distance east of Soldiers Field Road near where Article 24 resides. A hearing notice for the proposed spot shows that it would have a seasonal patio with seating for 12, though no specifics on the amount of indoor seating have been given as of yet. The hearing on the new Pavement Coffeehouse is slated to take place on March 7, so there should be more information coming out later next week.

Currently, locations of Pavement Coffeehouse can be found in Boston's Back Bay, the Fenway (2), the Symphony Hall area, by BU, and in Allston Village. (Another location is being planned for Harvard University's Smith Campus Center in Cambridge as well.)

The address for this new coffee spot in Allston-Brighton is: Pavement Coffeehouse, 415 Western Avenue, Brighton, MA, 02135. The website for all locations is at
