Caffè Nero Planning Fort Point Location

But it will take "quite a while" to open.

Caffè Nero is planning a fifth Boston location in Fort Point, according to a tweet from The Fort Pointer. The European-based chain specializes in finely crafted Italian coffee and serves breakfast, sandwiches, and other cafe foods.

Jay Gentile, director of U.S. operations for Caffè Nero, told Eater the company was in the very early stages of looking into opening a new store at 368 Congress St. in Fort Point. He said he anticipated a long process working with the City of Boston, however, as many of the buildings in that area are historic locations.

"When we work on older buildings anywhere, we try to bring them into what they once were," he said. "It's going to be quite a while."

The company is headquartered on Congress Street, Gentile said, so they would like to secure a location for a store nearby.

"All of our growth has always been organic and opportunistic," he said.

Caffè Nero started in London in 1997 and has more than 650 locations worldwide, including four local outposts in Downtown Crossing, Longwood Center, the South End, and Jamaica Plain.
