Zume's Reopens Today

Good coffee is back after months of repairs.

The wait is over.

 Zume’s Coffee House had a soft opening on Monday after closing its’ doors for construction and renovation on June 16. 

Zume’s will resume their regular hours today, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.. They have a new lunch menu to go along with their famous coffee.

With a new look and a new menu, what do you hope they kept the same? What will you miss? What have you been craving while they have been under construction? Use the comments section to sound off.

Patch will catch up with the owners for a business profile once things get back to normal at 221 Main Street.

The possessive "its" does not have an apostrophe; and "infamous" is not a compliment. I did stop by yesterday, and the coffee is as good as ever.

So glad they are back. Will miss the old look.

yes, why is the coffee "infamous"? is there a story behind that or just wrong choice of words?

Never liked this place. Ever since I got an answer of "it is what it is" from the owner when my wife asked for a bagel sandwich 5 minutes after breakfast ended it was very difficult to spend my money there. There are plenty of places to buy overpriced, "infamous" coffee in Boston.

My apologies on the use of "infamous." Wrong word choice. As far as their reputation, it is well known around Boston.

I don't blame the owner for sticking by the time lines they have set in place with regards to what they are serving at given points in the day. I would. Did your wife get the immediate reply "it is what it is" as soon as the bagel was requested, or did you argue the point first? Just curious.

This is good news.

Its a place to get coffee Who cares infamous or what ever he used and as for the bagel baby really WHAAAAAA!!!! life must be awesome in the bubbles you people live in ..... Holy Crap ...

Great coffee. Welcome back. Looks a lot smaller in there. What happened with the other businesses that were shuttered during construction? Reyenes? Raspberry Bouquet? Seems to me that Mr&Mrs Wash&Union are used to getting their way and when told no, they have a temper tantrum. Pathetic.

Hi, and thanks for your response. I agree that those time lines are there for a reason. That answer was delivered in an immediate and rude manner...there was no argument before or after. It was just off-putting considering there was not even a hint of customer service skill whatsoever and it wasn't busy. Not a big deal in retrospect, just something that makes me think twice before spending money on overpriced coffee which i could do anywhere with better customer service.
