The owner of Jimmies on Corinth writes she'd love to move into the old Select Cafe - or someplace else in Roslindale that's larger than her current location.
Oh, and don't worry we will get great bagels.

Select Cafe, which started out as an Emack & Bolio's ice-cream shop, then became a coffeehouse complete with open-mic nights, before gradually turning into a daytime gathering spot for the neighborhood's Albanian men, shut this week.
The old Emack ice-cream signs are down from the walls of the cafe across from the commuter-rail station; much of the rest of the shop now sits in piles... Read more
A cafe where you can pet and gaze at cats while you sip your latte, not a place for cats to enjoy mouse smoothies, that is.
I'm a young entrepreneur looking to start a cat cafe in the U.S. I'm very serious about this and determined to have be created by the end of 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. I've had this idea for a... Read more
The Boston Licensing Board next Wednesday considers granting a food-serving license to the 7 Pond Coffee Bar proposed for, well, 7 Pond St.
The high-end coffee place is proposed by Maks Milstein, who owns Brookline's Cafe Fixe. Milstein used to be a lawyer, but got hooked on coffee brewing as a hobby and eventually decided to abandon the law for the bean.

There's been an outbreak of young folks sipping their iced coffee from Mason and pickle jars as they ride the Green and Red lines.
Matt Aromando tweets from the Green Line:
This is the most Allston thing I've seen in a while.
Hipster with pickle jar full of iced coffee spotted on MBTA at Kenmore. Not just an allston phenomena.... Read more
The Globe maps every last outlet of each chain and tries to figure out what it means (Dunk's dominates in Massachusetts - surprised?) - all on a page with some interesting scrolling.
Limeduck continues his one-man campaign to ensure no coffeehouse Scrabble set goes without letters for long.
The Daily Free Press reports two guys waltzed into the Panera Bread on Comm. Ave. by St. Paul Street on Tuesday and "refilled their non-Panera Bread mugs with coffee and refused to pay."
If you're one of those people who thinks Starbucks would be much improved if all the hipsters disappeared, you'll love this karmic post.
Around 8:45 a.m, Susan Anderson tweeted:
The Orange Line is seriously standing by "due to a coffee spill that needs to be cleaned up." ... At least it made for a nice-smelling train first thing in the morning...
The coffee break happened after incoming T General Manager Beverly Scott rode the line from a chat session with commuters at North Station to a... Read more
John Carroll reports that when Brookline's ban on styrofoam food containers goes into effect, he'll just start buying his medium Dunkin' Donuts coffee elsewhere:
The hardworking staff has no kids so, to be honest, we don’t care as much as Brookline goo-goos might about the environmental effects of styrofoam. Add to that, the Dunkin’ Donuts medium coffee cup stands as one of the design... Read more
A federal appeals court ruled today Starbucks owes Massachusetts baristas more than $14 million for tips that were shared with supervisors between 2005 and 2011, because state law bars managers from dipping into the tip jar.
Starbucks tried to pour cold water on a class-action suit on behalf of more than 11,000 former and current baristas by arguing that "shift supervisors" weren't really managers because... Read more
The sandwich and baked-goods chain is building a new outlet at 3 Center Plaza, across from City Hall, which is good for certain City Hall denizens who are now forced to walk all the way over to High Street on the Greenway for their coffee, bagels and WiFi.
The Globe reports the chain will pilot wireless cellphone charging at 17 Boston outlets. You'll need a special mat to put under your phone to soak in all the wireless electricity, but Starbucks says it may have some to give away or to let customers borrow.
Timothy's on VFW Parkway recently shut down and took all its coffee with it. The table area's still open to customers from the neighboring Bruegger's, where a cashier said the Canadian-based Timothy's (which has nothing to do with Tim Horton's) was an experiment that just didn't bring in enough customers. It opened only a year ago.... Read more
