Tatte Bakery to replace Cafe Vanille on Charles Street

Tweet A mainstay on Charles Street for years, Cafe Vanille will soon be closing its doors on Beacon Hill. But fear not: Tatte Bakery & Cafe, which also has shops in Brookline and Cambridge, is now planning to move into 70 Charles Street.



For 74 Beacon Street, it was the kitchen, stupid

Tweet After a major renovation, the townhouse mansion at 74 Beacon Street, overlooking the Public Garden, is back on the market for $13.95 million. The big change: The kitchen has been moved from the basement to the first floor. None of that old Upstairs Downstairs stuff for new occupants. Homeowners today simply want kitchens front […]



Good-bye, Charles Street Market. Hello, Farmer’s Market?

Tweet Beacon Hill residents were quite upset when the Charles Street Market closed last year, soon to be replaced by a Peet’s Coffee later this year in the fourth quarter (according to signs now plastered in the windows on Charles Street). But fear not: Two Beacon Hill residents, Colin Kreik and Casey Fox, are hoping […]



Gourmet cheese shop to open on Beacon Hill

Tweet It seems Beacon Hill residents who packed a recent meeting actually now like the changes sought to make Joy Street more pedestrian friendly. Indeed, they’re actually praising the state’s review process. Now that’s a change. File under: Believe it or not



Now they raise concerns …

Tweet Some members of the Back Bay’s Trinity Church are expressing dissension with the church’s recent $3.6 million purchase, as previously noted, of a Beacon Hill abode for its rector. File under: Buyer’s remorse



February surprise: State may finally re-open Esplanade swimming pool

Tweet With a major snowstorm arriving today, maybe it’s not the most appropriate time to be thinking of summer and swimming. But: The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has affirmed its willingness to reopen the Lee Memorial Wading Pool on the Charles River Esplanade, but more than 15 years after the facility’s closure, the […]



Suffolk University selling off Beacon Hill buildings

Tweet Big news for Beacon Hill: Suffolk University is only confirming that it plans to sell the Fenton building at the corner of Derne and Hancock streets on Beacon Hill, as part of its overall consolidation of its properties in the neighborhood. But Stephen Young, of the Beacon Hill Civic Association, says that Suffolk has […]



Beacon Hill groups oppose city’s sidewalk and tree-cutting plans

Tweet A number of neighborhood groups are opposing the city’s plans to alter the sidewalk street-scape on Beacon Hill, plans that include cutting down hundreds of trees, removal of some bricks and new-style curb cuts for the disabled. Hey, we’re all for making the neighborhood more disabled-friendly. But it sure looks like the city’s DPW […]



Beacon Hill’s Joy Street could see some major changes

Tweet The Beacon Hill Times reports that state and federal officials would like to make changes to Joy Street, with parking alterations perhaps being the biggest news: Connect Historic Boston – an initiative between the National Park Service and the Boston Transportation Department – proposes building a pedestrian entrance at Joy and Cambridge streets to […]
