NORTHBOROUGH – A new diner is heading to Northborough.
Jolly Rogers Diner will be located at the former Two Doors Away Cafe at 249 West Main Street.
According to Roger Convery, Jolly Rogers will be a breakfast and lunch restaurant.
“I specialize in smoked meats, homemade sausage, brisket, pulled pork, chicken — all smoked,” Convery said during the Sept. 12 Board of Selectmen meeting.
The rest of the menu will feature breakfast food like eggs, pancakes and omelets. The lunch menu will mostly be sandwiches and daily specials, according to Convery.
As of the meeting, he was hoping to open in two to three weeks, though he added he was looking for staff.
The Board of Selectmen approved a common victualler license for Jolly Rogers Diner during their meeting subject to satisfactory inspections by the building, fire and health departments.
“At this point, my understanding is [that it’s] a simple change of ownership. All aspects of the business otherwise are going to remain the same,” said Town Administrator John Coderre.
The selectmen congratulated Convery during the meeting.
“I have been aware of Roger’s ambitions to open this restaurant for a number of months, and I’m very, very excited that it’s gotten this far,” said Chair Mitch Cohen.
He said the Two Doors Away Cafe was a “great place,” and he was sad when it closed.
“Having another restaurant that is somewhat unique in its styling move into that location would be great,” Cohen said.
