Au Bon Pain on State Street in Downtown Boston Has Closed

One day after reporting that the Somerville location of a chain of bakery cafes is saying farewell, we have learned that another outlet as closed as well, and this one was in the heart of Boston.

According to multiple sources, Au Bon Pain on State Street in downtown Boston has shut down, with a check in the locations section of the local chain seeming to confirm this, showing that it no longer shows up on that page. The State Street outlet joins another closure in Davis Square, with that location sending an email to a number of other sources saying that it is "closing permanently" (it appears that the Somerville shop has already closed, as it has now been removed from the locations page as well).

Other locations of Au Bon Pain--which is headquartered in the Seaport District of Boston--seem to remain in operation, including other downtown Boston shops at South Station, One International Place, Park Plaza, and Merrimac Street, though they are all labeled as currently being "temporarily closed" on the site, apparently because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The address for the now-closed location of Au Bon Pain in downtown Boston was 53 State Street, Boston, MA, 02109. The website for the chain can be found at
