For over 27 years, Deja Brew (formerly Cranberry Cafe) has been serving up crowd-pleasing breakfast, lunch, and plenty of coffee in South Boston. On Monday afternoon, the City of Boston gave out special awards to honor those long-standing businesses in our neighborhoods – Deja Brew was one of those recipients! Deja Brew has been a neighborhood favorite owned and operated by the mother-daughter team of Cathe and Marissa Walsh!

“A “Legacy Business” is defined as those businesses that are long-standing, independent enterprises that make a strong contribution to community character. These businesses are cultural anchors and repositories of community traditions and stories. They are a special and unique part of Boston’s historic identity.”  – via City of Boston website.

Over 30 Boston businesses received this prestigious award!

It’s so important to support our small business community so our newer small shops/restaurants can grow into legacies too!
