Last week, we reported that what had been a trio of North Shore cafes was down to just one, as its Marblehead location had announced its closure. Now we have learned that a new cafe will be taking over that space.
According to a Facebook post from OctoCog, Blue Canoe Cafe is moving into the former Atomic Cafe space on School Street, with a post from the upcoming spot saying that it will offer freshly-baked goods, sandwiches, and smoothies along with "strong" coffee. No opening date has been given for the place as of yet, with a sign out front simply saying "coming soon," so keep checking back for updates as they come in.
In addition to the closing of its Marblehead location, Atomic Cafe recently shut down its Newburyport shop as well, leaving the business with only one retail outlet (in Beverly). Its roasting operation--which does not include a retail store--is located in Salem.
The address for this upcoming cafe in Marblehead is: Blue Canoe Cafe, 14 School Street, Marblehead, MA, 01945.
Thanks to @CappyinBoston for initially bringing this to our attention.
