Hampton Inn can also now have a breakfast seating area to serve guests.
Four Square in Braintree-Weymouth Landing now has permission to serve food and alcohol to up to eight customers at a time in a seating area outside of the restaurant's front entrance. The Board of License Commissioners approved the placement of two tables with four chairs each at its meeting earlier this week, on the condition that a path is kept for pedestrians on the sidewalk adjacent to the seating.

It allows the establishment to set up a 35-seat breakfast area to serve its guests seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.
