A Philadelphia-born coffee house that opened its first location in Boston last year will add another tomorrow. La Colombe opens at the One Seaport development (29 Northern Ave.) on Friday, December 8, bringing draft lattes and pastries to the burgeoning neighborhood.
In honor of opening day, the coffee shop will give away free cans of its signature draft latte beverage (made with frothed milk and cold-pressed espresso). Just as La Colombe does in its location near South Station, the Seaport coffee shop will partner with the South End’s Café Madeleine for all food offerings, including pastries and sandwiches. Additionally, a partnership with New York-based juice chain Liquiteria will bring juices into the shop. (Liquiteria did have a Harvard Square location — its only Boston-area outpost — but it has closed, making way for a poke restaurant.)
As for the coffee, La Colombe serves a variety of beans from all over the world, emphasizing ethical and sustainable growing practices. Beverage options include espresso-based drinks like Americanos, lattes, cappuccinos, and cortados, along with pour over and drip coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. Draft lattes are available on tap, as is Pure Black, the brand’s cold-pressed coffee.
"We committed very early into the project and the transformation of Seaport has been amazing," JP Iberti, the president and co-founder of La Colombe, said in a release. "It was a perfect fit to bring our full experience through design, natural light, art — to our new neighbors. We hope this cafe can be a hub for the neighborhood culture and coffee."
Once it opens tomorrow, La Colombe’s new Seaport location will operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends.
As previously reported, La Colombe also has plans for a Back Bay location near the Prudential Center; stay tuned for updates.
