According to a license commission hearing agenda page within the city's website, Black Sheep Bagel is planning to open on JFK Street in Harvard Square, with the notice indicating that the eatery would be located in a basement spot that includes a dining area and approximately 1,270 square feet of space. Little other information has been given on the business, other than the fact that the manager listed is Shoshanah Garber and that it could be open from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM daily, while a page from shows that the exact name of the space is Black Sheep Bagel Cafe.

The address for this new bagel place in Harvard Square is: Black Sheep Bagel Cafe, 56 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
