Watch out, Starbucks? Canadian coffee chain starts Boston invasion in West Roxbury
Bruegger's, which sells bagels in the Village of Chestnut Hill mall on VFW Parkway, is converting the store next door into a Timothy's Cafe, fair-trade coffee, baked goods and sandwiches.
Bruegger's bought the chain from its Canadian founders and plans to expand it across the US. The West Roxbury outlet will be either the second or third Timothy's in the US.
There's currently one Starbucks in West Roxbury, but on the other side of the neighborhood, by Roche Bros. on Centre Street.
