Diner-Style Little Dipper Restaurant Takes Over for Popular Centre Street Cafe

Chances are the Little Dipper is the only restaurant in Jamaica Plain with model rockets on the ceiling. But it's the menu that will ultimately draw customers back in to the restaurant, not the decor. The diner-style restaurant recently opened after taking place of the popular Centre Street Cafe. Co-owner David Doyle, who also owned Centre Street Cafe, said the change in business name, concept and decor was due to working with a new business partner, Robyn McGrath, who is also the chef. "She and I agreed that there is a need for more quality breakfast and lunch options in the neighborhood, so we decided to close the cafe and open Little Dipper, a fun, casual, diner-style restaurant, which we believe will have broader appeal than the cafe," said Doyle to Jamaica Plain News.

Centre Street Cafe Becoming ‘Celestial’ All Day Diner

The seemingly popular Centre Street Cafe will be changing its name in the coming weeks and becoming an all day diner with a celestial name. The diner will be called Little Dipper and have a space theme, according to Boston Magazine. The current ownership of the cafe purchased it in 2015 and changed it to an Italian restaurant, and continued to serve one of the most popular brunches in town, as it commonly has a line out the door. So sounds like the Little Dipper will still serve brunch, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a Cajuan, Southern and Southwestern influence, reports Boston Magazine. Centre Street Cafe is expected to close in May for several weeks as it is remade into the diner.
