Cafe Landwer, an Israeli-based cafe, debuted its first Boston location this week, quietly opening in Audubon Circle on Thursday, January 18. Located at 900 Beacon St., it’s within a new building constructed on the former site of Elephant Walk. The cafe is operating under limited hours this weekend (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. until around 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday), with standard hours beginning on Monday, January 22, according to Patrick Maguire of Maguire Promotions & Hospitality Consulting.
There are dozens of Cafe Landwer locations in Israel, but Boston’s is one of the first in North America; another opened near Toronto in 2017. The menu at Cafe Landwer features Mediterranean fare and spans breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast items include shakshuka and other egg-based dishes, yogurt, and more, while lunch and dinner delve into sandwiches, salads, pasta, pizza, and other items. The Audubon Circle location is also slated to serve alcohol.
Cafe Landwer seats 80 indoors and will eventually have a seasonal patio with an additional 40 seats, as previously reported. When regular hours kick in next week, it will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Stay tuned for updates on its forthcoming second Boston location, which will be in Brighton’s Cleveland Circle neighborhood.
