Hidden Treasure: Roxanne's Café


Here's the routine--it's 2:00pm, we are super hungry, we waited too long and didn't fill our lil' fridge.
no. 1: Are we going to eat today?
no. 2: Yessirree. What's it going to be?
no. 1: (We go down our regular list of local eateries)
no. 2: OK, I don't care, you pick.
This goes on for another 10 to 15 minutes....
This week, we remembered that a number of our friends have been telling us about this little gem right around the corner--in our hood! Roxanne's Café.

Roxanne's is open 11-3 daily and closed on sundays. Perfect, this day is taking a turn for the good.
As we come around the corner, we are enchanted by the seating choices and the atmosphere is so chill and comfortable.

The majority of the menu changes daily. There are usually specials, salads, soups and treats.

On this day, we try the eggplant pita and the romaine boats. They were both equally delicious!
We chose the coconut macaroons for dessert, and as sarah would say, "They were a symphony in my mouth!".

So far a 2 out of 3--they had a great atmosphere, great food, and SCORE, they made a 3 out of 3 with the staff being not only friendly but informative. I loved the relaxed banter that they had with all of their customers. As I sat waiting (not long at all), it is apparent that this place is a favorite to all that visit it.

Thanks Roxanne, Matt and Claire!

Roxanne's Café is located at 1227 Archer St. in the courtyard of Smiling Dog yoga.

In our own SLOHO neighborhood there is a studio that is part of this event. IDREW art studio is tucked away behind the Marine Shop on Pacific street, in the SLOHO district. The artist in residence is Drew, and can be found inside, surrounded by diverse artistic offerings. There is a lot to see in his small studio. Here a sampling of his talent.
