Exactly one week from today, residents of Troy Boston and other South End regulars will have a new option for flat whites, long blacks, meat pies, and other Australian fare. Boston-based, Down Under-themed Cuppacoffee is poised to debut its second location in the South End on Monday, Sept. 21, Boston Restaurant Talk noted last week.
Sydney native Todd Moore launched Cuppacoffee near Haymarket in 2013, and the company announced two new locations this year. The South End cafe is situated inside the Troy development at 57 Traveler St., on the corner of Albany Street. Troy Boston will also be home to a new A4 Pizza, and a Back Bay Cuppacoffee is in the works, as well.
Cuppacoffee serves a menu of drip coffees, teas, and espresso drinks, including a latte-like bevy popular Down Under called a flat white; plus long black (Americano), short black (espresso), and cappuccino "served with chocy powder on top." It also offers traditional Australian meat pies and sausage rolls from DUB Pies, the New York-based "Down Under Bakery."
Cuppacoffee joined KO Pies as an Oceania-inspired takeaway on the Boston scene. Boston Globe columnist Thomas Farragher recently caught up with KO Pies owner Sam Jackson to learn more about his ongoing struggle with a Boston Redevelopment Authority-approved condo project, first reported in June. Jackson feels the 45 W. 3rd development will eclipse his original, South Boston meat pie shop, which opened in 2010.
