I would like to see a casual restaurant.

I agree with K.M. Hayes, a bakery is sorely needed in Westwood. And that spot formally occupied by Cold Stone has great visibility and parking/access. A bakery combined with serving coffee. There really is no good coffee shops in Westwood other than the tasteless Dunkin Dounuts and the Charbucks on High Street.

How about VideoMANIA... just kidding. A sporting goods shop or hardware shop would be great. Love bakeries and coffee shops too but I think we got a great one in Perks right across the way there.

to reply to seliot and K.M Hates, there is a coffee shop that serves breakfast and lunch directly across the street. Course there is always room for compitition.

Thanks Mary, I meant Cafe Diva (not Perks, which is also nice, but located in Norwood) in my comment about a great coffee shop across from the old ColdStone Creamery Space.
