    Several years ago, we reported that a location of a pie shop/cafe in Cambridge could be closing to make way for a new location of a group of sandwich shops, but the plans ultimately appeared to fall through. Now it looks like this will be happening after all.

    According to a license commission hearing agenda page within the city's website, Darwin's Ltd. is looking to open a new outlet at 31 Putnam Street, with the address indicating that it will be moving into the space where Petsi Pies cafe resides. Back in 2013, an article about Petsi opening in East Cambridge mentioned that it appeared these plans had been in the works with the Putnam Avenue location of Petsi closing at some point and Darwin's taking over the space, but Petsi never did end up closing.

    Other locations of Darwin's can be found in Harvard Square, Central Square, and between Inman and Harvard Squares while another location of Petsi Pies can be found on Beacon Street in Somerville.

    January 28 update: A message sent to us confirms that Darwin's will definitely be taking over the Petsi space on Putnam Avenue, with Petsi apparently closing this week. (We have also been told that the Beacon Street location of Petsi will remain in operation.)

    January 30 update: A new message sent to us says that Petsi Pies will close its Putnam Avenue shop tomorrow (Thursday, January 31) and Darwin's plans to open in its space on Saturday, February 2.
