Cafe Landwer Is Opening in Boston's Back Bay/Copley Square Area

A chain of cafes based in Israel that has two locations in Boston will be opening a third, with this one coming to one of the busiest parts of the city.

According to a source, Cafe Landwer is planning to open in the Back Bay/Copley Square area, with our source telling us that it is taking over the space on Boylston Street that had been home to Ora Trattorizza. A message sent from the chain confirms that the new outlet will indeed be opening on Boylston Street, while our source says that the windows out front shows the Landwer name. It isn't yet known when the new location might be opening, so stay tuned for updates. 

Cafe Landwer, which also has locations in the Fenway/Audubon Circle neighborhood and Brighton's Cleveland Circle area, is known for such items as shakshuka, hummus, roasted eggplant in tahini, schnitzel, chicken shawarma, and roasted Jerusalem artichokes.

It appears that the address for the new location of Cafe Landwer in the Back Bay/Copley Square area will be 653 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for the chain can be found at
