    Frozen Hoagies is Opening a New Location

    This week's Restaurant Roundup includes ice cream sandwiches, a Route 1 closure and an asian sandwich shop. (Published Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019)

    It looks like Boston's first (and only) cat cafe has closed for at least the time being.

    Universal Hub is reporting (via a Twitter post from @MariannaFoos) that PURR Cat Cafe in Brighton has temporarily shuttered, with a note on its website saying "Please continue to check back with us for future updates. Thank you to each and every one of you that has supported PURR since opening. Thank you for your past business and support. We are very thankful and grateful in having you as our customer." The Chestnut Hill Avenue cafe, which debuted in 2017 after a long and rocky road to opening, was a place where people could hang out with adoptable shelter cats while bringing in food or beverages.

    The address for PURR Cat Cafe is 167 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Brighton, MA, 02135.

    Thanks to The Passionate Foodie for initially bringing this to our attention.
