Swing by The Avenir condo building (89 Canal Street) for your coffee fix today. As of this morning, there's a Boston Common Coffee Co. location open on the ground floor. It's the fourth outpost for Boston Common, a decade-old company that's also found in the North End, Downtown Crossing, and the Financial District. (Their roasting facility is out in Hopedale.)
While the menu varies a little bit from location to location, Boston Common Coffee Co. generally offers a selection of wraps and panini, salads, and baked goods, including the greatest invention known to mankind and popularized by Seinfeld — the muffin top. Interesting donut flavors also pop up, but only on Thursdays. The new location rounds out its roster with a new line of flatbread sandwiches.
