NEEDHAM, MA - November 19, 2014 - The Bulfinch Companies, Inc., a private commercial real estate investment firm, is pleased to announce the grand opening of Plates Too! Cafe in the main lobby of First Needham Place in Needham Crossing.

Plates Café has successfully operated for the past 7 years at One Wells Avenue in Newton serving full breakfast, hot lunches, freshly made salads, and sandwiches. This new second location is a Grab n’ Go style café serving with light breakfast and lunch options on the menu, as well as drinks and snacks. The café is located on the first floor of 250 First Avenue in Needham with limited seating and iPads at tables to enjoy while grabbing a quick breakfast, lunch or snack.

“Plates Too! Cafe is a wonderful addition to the building bringing a tremendous amenity and convenience to tenants and area employees,” said Tina Snyder, Director or Marketing for Bulfinch. “Plates is a great local and family-owned business that we are thrilled to partner with and support.”

Deborah Wollheim, owner of Plates Cafe, said they were happy to be able to expand Plates Cafe locally and to be able to provide a great convenience not only to Bulfinch’s tenants at 250 First Avenue, but also to the entire Needham Crossing area.

“It has been very exciting to launch a second location for Plates, and to see how much tenants appreciate the new amenity,” Deborah said. “We are thrilled to partner with Bulfinch in Needham Crossing, and the business at the new cafe has been great and is getting busier every day.”

250 First Avenue in Needham, a LEED Silver certified building developed by Bulfinch in 1998, is located in Needham Crossing in the heart of the N2 Corridor, a cross-section of Newton and Needham that is home to more than 150 companies in the high tech/innovation sector and is soon to be the new location of Trip Advisor’s world headquarters.
