A tiny, subterranean coffee shop in Back Bay closed its doors last week. Wired Puppy (250 Newbury St., Boston) shared a note on its window that indicated it held its final day in business on June 10. The cafe, which was connected to Alabama-based Revelator Coffee Company (as of early 2017), had operated on Newbury Street for approximately 10 years. Up until a few years ago, dogs were welcomed inside.
Wired Puppy also has a location in Provincetown, which remains open. The Back Bay location served Revelator coffee as well as teas and other beverages. There were also pastries, baked goods, and snacks available, with seating inside and out and complimentary wifi.
The cafe’s departure from Back Bay after 10 years coincides with other changes in the cafe landscape of the neighborhood. Barrington Coffee Roasters also recently shut down its Newbury Street cafe, which has since been taken over by Coco Leaf, a bubble tea shop with another location in Dorchester. Additionally, Jonquils Cafe & Bakery opened recently on Newbury Street, and it serves very geometric pastries made from 3D-printed molds.
