East Boston could get something like a Capital One cafe, only with a real-estate theme and more of an emphasis on the coffee

The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans for combination cafe and home-ownership resource center at 18-20 Meridian St. in East Boston.

Zechariah Cook and Ismail Guessous, who are real-estate brokers, plan to open Kennedy Cafe as a neighborhood coffeehouse - but a place where people can also get home ownership tips and leads on local plumbers, electricians and the like.

The name is an homage to JFK's grandfather, Patrick, who founded a bank that used to be in the building.

The cafe still needs approval of the Boston Licensing Board.
