Dunkin’ Donuts Comes To Westwood Village

The troubled corner space at 1001 Gayley in Westwood Village was most recently and briefly the home to juice shop Qwench, and before that it was a branch of Coffee Bean.  Now a reader (Thanks Kiko!) wrote to tell me that a new coffee joint is taking over to location.  It appears that national chain Dunkin’ Donuts will soon be dishing breakfast pastries and sugary coffee drinks to the good people of Westwood.
