A new coffee shop in Downtown Boston is on track to open in early April. Render Coffee, which currently has a location at 563 Columbus Ave. in the South End, is teaming up with the Cambridge Innovation Center in Boston to bring plenty of coffee to the co-working building, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.
Render owner Chris Dadey is set to go before the Boston licensing board next week to get approval for this cafe. He told Eater that the new location will serve coffee from Tandem and Gracenote, along with "a mix of local pastries." In the South End, Render serves a range of pour-over coffee drinks and espresso, as Boston Magazine reported. According to Dadey, Render's CIC location will add a drip coffee program to cater to the morning commuters.
"This is a CIC venture with Render where the 90-seat cafe will be open to the public and also serve as CIC Boston's front door and concierge," Dadey wrote in an email to Eater. The cafe will have an adjoining event and meeting space, which the CIC will manage, allowing for networking events, food and coffee classes, and more.
Render's food menu includes breakfast items like quiche, lox on a choice of bread, pastries, and more. The address for the new cafe is 121 Devonshire St., in the base of CIC Boston (though the address for CIC is 50 Milk St.). Render will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
