Concord’s newest coffee shop has been in the works for more than a year after property owner Linear Retail Properties signed a 10-year lease with the European coffee chain.
Director of Caffè Nero USA Jay Gentil said that seeing the store filled with customers it looked like “exactly what they wanted it to be.”
“It’s a neighborhood coffeehouse that serves really good coffee and really good food and allows the neighbors to come sit and socialize” Gentil said.
Gentil said that the morning had started slowly, but once the word got out that the shop was open it had been filled with a steady stream of customers.
Barbara White of Wayland said she wandered in for a French lesson with her tutor not knowing it was the opening day.
