Pressed Cafe at Tara Commons

Canton, MA – Timberline Construction of Canton recently completed the Pressed Café fit-out within the Tara Commons retail plaza in Nashua. With an open commercial kitchen behind the sales counter, seating for 50 and men’s and women’s restrooms, the restaurant was built to accommodate both to-go and dining-in customer needs. The project also involved the construction of a new drive-through system outside of the restaurant to help achieve their convenience goals.

The fit-up of the in-line corner location was designed by Landry Architects of Salem with an open layout. The 1,582sf restaurant space features extensive millwork, modern and rustic architectural design components and offers both built-in and moveable furnishings. Hanging light fixtures, pendant lighting and large windows allow for a warm and amiable atmosphere.

Timberline’s interior fit-up team produced a finished product that combines the functionality of this contemporary cafe with New Hampshire’s rural charm.
