Cafe Bonjour to Open in Boston's Downtown Crossing

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a new dining spot is on its way to the heart of downtown Boston.

According to a message from @cappyinboston, Cafe Bonjour is opening in Downtown Crossing, moving into a space on Temple Place between Tremont Street and Washington Street. This jibes with an earlier licensing board hearing page that mentioned the place had been seeking a common victualler license to operate there, with the space including a dining room and a kitchen/storage area in the back. Very little is known about Cafe Bonjour at this point in time, and its website shows that more information will be coming soon, so keep checking back for updates.

The address for this upcoming dining spot in Downtown Crossing is: Cafe Bonjour, 55 Temple Place, Boston, MA, 02111. Its website will be at

[November 26 update: A new message from @cappyinboston indicates that Cafe Bonjour hopes to open tomorrow.]

[December 18 update: Cafe Bonjour did not end up opening last month, but @cappyinboston tells us (via an Instagram post from the place) that it plans to open this weekend.]
