I think he's referring to the one in the station building itself, now the Station Diner (it was directly upstairs from the platform, not across the street). The T does own that building.

Yes, it USED to be a Starbucks before the diner. (.....when I lived in Newton prior to moving to Scituate in 2006.) I think Cafe Nero is in the Wellesley Hills Commuter Rail Station, but I haven't visited yet.

In my opinion, EVERY station should have a coffee shop of any variety!

Re: T construction news

Iím not in Harvard Square station that often, and just found that busway renovation has begun. The upper busway is now closed, and it looks as if they have removed the long-dark Kepes stained glass window.

Does anyone know if they are planning to repair and replace the work, or if it being de-installed permanently? Before it went dark, I always thought it was one of the more successful pieces in the Arts on the Line project.
