London-based coffee shop chain Caffè Nero is expanding to Boston, as reported back in November, and now it looks like the first opening will be in late April at Millennium Place in Downtown Crossing, according to the Globe.
The chain has more than 650 locations throughout Europe and Asia; this will be the first in the United States. "Boston, more so than many markets, has an affinity toward European things and I think our brand will fit in really well there," founder and chief executive Gerry Ford told the Globe. (Meanwhile, they're adding drip coffee to the local menu for those who aren't quite into the signature Italian espresso.) Also on the menu: light snacks and meals like sandwiches, soups, and pastries.
