A vacant railroad station in Wellesley could soon be home to a coffee chain that has a handful of existing Boston locations. Caffè Nero is planning to open in the historic Wellesley Hills station this spring, according to The Swellesley Report.
Caffè Nero, which started in London in 1997 and has more than 650 locations worldwide, has four local shops in Downtown Crossing, Longwood Center, the South End, and Jamaica Plain. A Fort Point location is also in the works.
The shop is known for its finely crafted Italian coffee and cafe-style menu, complete with breakfast, sandwiches, pastries, and more.
The proposed location in Wellesley was built in 1885 by H. H. Richardson, according to The Swellesley Report, and Jay Gentile, the USA director for Caffè Nero, said the company was "thrilled" about the space, saying, "We will do our best to treat this building with the respect it deserves."
