It looks like a new cafe may be on its way to a quiet part of Cambridge, moving into the space where another dining spot had been until closing a year and a half ago.
According to a license commission hearing agenda page within the city's website, The Little Crepe Cafe is planning to open on Oxford Street (a road parallel to Mass. Ave. basically between Harvard Square and Porter Square), with the exact address indicating that it would be taking over the old Oxford Spa space. The notice mentions that the place would be a counter service cafe/bistro and that it would have a "very simple kitchen" with no ventilation needed, including no heavy cooking, frying, or stoves. The proposed hours indicate that The Little Crepe Cafe would be open for breakfast, lunch, and an early dinner daily.
The Oxford Spa, which had been open for approximately 20 years until shutting down in the summer of 2017, offered breakfast and lunch items mainly to locals in the surrounding area as well as nearby students.
The address for the proposed Little Crepe Cafe is 102 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
