Masal Cafe Expands To Dunkin Donuts Territory

Site of the new Masal Cafe

Masal Cafe is one of two establishments in Lundy’s to survive the building’s rebirth, and business appears to be good. It first expanded from a tiny cafe to a spacious restaurant several years ago (after the Lundy’s “mini-mall” idea flopped), and now they’re snatching up a second Emmons Avenue location.

Signs unfurled on the old Dunkin’ Donuts lot just a few short weeks ago, with Masal’s name all over it. The new “Masal Cafe Seaside” is not a move; a manager at Masal’s Lundy’s branch told me that they were staying put and this would be a secondary waterfront location. She said the plan was to open in two months, which is possible but not probable, given the amount of work that needs to be done on the site.

What do you think? Is a new Masal location going to be a watery haven, or dead-on-the-water?
