Pop Up Cafes in Cambridge


In an effort to support local restaurants around Cambridge, the city is now leasing parking spaces for local restaurants to expand their outdoor dining. Pop up cafes work in places where sidewalks don’t facilitate outdoor dining. Please contact us at 617-349-4800 to find out more how to apply for a permit.

To read more about the program and its first participant, please view the Cambridge Chronicle & Tab article that was published June 19, 2014.
