Gracenote Coffee and Wine Opens in Former Intrepid Cafe Space in East Cambridge

The people behind an espresso bar in downtown Boston have opened a new location that also serves alcohol.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Gracenote Coffee and Wine is now open in East Cambridge, taking over the space on First Street where Intrepid Cafe had been. An article in Boston Magazine indicates that the new outlet joins another Gracenote on Lincoln Street in Boston's Leather District, but the Cambridge location also serves beer, wine, and cordials in addition to coffee, espresso and baked goods--and a menu of Rancho Gordo popcorns can be found at the new spot as well.

Gracenote first opened its Boston location in the fall of 2015; in addition to its new shop in East Cambridge, another outlet is also on its way to High Street Place, a new food hall coming to downtown Boston.

The address for Gracenote Coffee and Wine is 150 First Street, Cambridge, MA, 02142. The website for the company is at
