The Border Cafe: Closed Forever


It is a sad day. I just learned what I have suspected for a long time. The Harvard Square branch of The Border Cafe is closed permanently. They had been closed due to a fire, but it is the pandemic that truly ended it.

I only saw mention of the Cambridge location. Burlington and Saugus seem to be okay. I don’t know if they’ve been open at all since March, and I sure as hell am not planning on going to find out. I just hope that post-vaccination, they are still there waiting for us.

Pour one out for The Border. We hardly knew ye.
