A pair of Cambridge bakeries and cafes has expanded to a space in downtown Boston.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Hi-Rise Bread Company is now open inside the Boston Public Market near Haymarket Square, taking over the stall that George Howell Coffee used to reside in before it moved across the way to the former Taza Chocolate Bar space. The new location of the bakery-cafe offers a variety of breads, pastries, jams, and granola, and it will also be serving soups, salads, and sandwiches at some point in the future. The person behind all three Hi-Rise locations is Rene Becker, who also ran Shepard in Cambridge until it closed on New Year's Eve.
Other locations of Hi-Rise can be found on Concord Avenue in Huron Village and Mass. Ave. between Porter Square and Harvard Square.
The website for Hi-Rise Bread Company is at http://www.hi-risebread.com/
