    Could Redd's in Rozzie Be Making a Comeback?

    A rapidly-growing chain of European coffee places is opening yet another shop in the local area, with this one coming to a brand new hotel in Cambridge.

    According to a license commission page within the city's website, Caffe Nero is opening within the Hotel 1868 in Porter Square, while an earlier article from Cambridge Day mentioned that this will be the second location of the chain in the city, joining another outlet in Central Square. Hotel 1868, which debuted last fall, is the second new hotel to come to the Porter Square area, as the Porter Square Hotel opened on the other side of the square in 2016--and that hotel is now home to a new French restaurant called Colette which opened earlier this year.

    The address for the upcoming Caffe Nero (and the Hotel 1868) is 1868 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02140. The website for the chain can be found at
