FRAMINGHAM – Just in time for summer, a new ice cream cafe is coming to downtown Framingham.
The Framingham License Commission unanimously approved a common victualer license and a sidewalk license for Downtown Creamery, tonight, April 5.
To be located at 402/410 Waverly Street, the establishment will be an ice cream shop with light-fare food, said consultant David Gonzales of We Serve Safely.
The Commission also approved 6 patio seats outside the building.
Gonzales said the there is still some “build out” that needs to be completed before the cafe establishment can open.
He described Downtown Creamery’s menu as “fast casual,” cafe that will serve ice cream and gelato.
The hours of operation will be 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Gonzales estimated an opening in about 2 months, and also mentioned a possible window for take out service.
“I’m really excited to see a new business downtown. Super excited for the outdoor seating,” said Commissioner Sara Porter.
“Great addition to downtown,” said Commission Laura Medrano.
“This will encourage more activity in that area of downtown,” said Commission Chair Adam Barnosky. “Looking forward to the opening.”
