Baltimore entrepreneur Michael Saunders can’t wait to open Matriarch Coffee in a long-vacant space in Harborplace’s Pratt Street Pavilion this fall — and hopes the shop will be part of the beleaguered retail center’s future. Saunders and his partners have entered a deal to open the coffee shop in October in 600 square feet of the former M&S Grill space on the first floor of the nearly vacant pavilion. MCB Real Estate, which is redeveloping Harborplace, has a licensing deal with Matriarch, a Baltimore County coffee roaster that uses beans from the African country of Rwanda.
