Sofa Cafe
181 Concord St., Framingham
A sleekly decorated coffee shop bringing to Framingham the brand and taste of what was originally a chain launched in Brazil. 
A Global Chain Gone Local:
Sofa Cafe has a shop in Framingham. It has six others in Southern Brazil. It’s a truly global brand that first launched in South America chose Eastern Massachusetts as its place to expand. 
After much success in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the owners of Sofa launched a satellite store on Newbury Street in Boston in 2014 before then branching out to Framingham.
