The Well Coffee House will soon expand beyond South Station. A second location opens in the next two to three weeks in the space left vacant by Pret a Manger (1 State St.) in Downtown Boston, according to community liaison Julie Love.
The Well Coffee House is a Christian non-profit cafe staffed by volunteers. It opened in South Station in 2014 with the mission to “create high quality coffee house environments that produce opportunities to build relationships, serve the community, demonstrate love, present the Gospel, and bring glory to Jesus.”
Love explained to Eater that the Well Coffee House had planned to expand, and that the opportunity finally presented itself. The State Street cafe will differ from the South Station location — the menu will be expanded a bit. To start, it will serve mostly baked goods provided by the Haley House Bakery Café, with the potential to add more items in the future. The space will host various acoustic music performances and community events.
Well Coffee House will continue getting its coffee from Crimson Cup Coffee and Tea, a coffee roaster based in Columbus, Ohio, with roots at Harvard University.
“They, like us, are all about community, and that’s important to us,” said Love. “And the coffee is exceptional.”
The State Street rendition of Well Coffee House will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. It will be closed on Sunday.
