*** Update January 19, 2013: Sadly, The Point Cafe is no longer The Point Cafe. It is, however, still a restaurant, which has been rebranded and has a new menu. We will review the restaurant in the future and will share our new review with our readers. Be sure, too, to visit the Morais Art Gallery, which is housed in the same building and has fabulous art.
Last year, we reviewed the Point Cafe: http://pompanotoday.com/2011/11/point-cafe/.
Loving this place and finding they had expanded, we opted to take another look at it.
On page 18 of the May 2012 edition, we once again reviewed this restaurant.
Here is a link to the digital edition for May: http://issuu.com/
Driving home on a recent Saturday evening, we glanced over to the north side of Atlantic Boulevard. Specifically, 1915 East Atlantic Boulevard which, you may not have noticed, is completely different than it was just a few months ago. After a brief debate (it was, after all, after 8:00 pm – did we need to stop at a coffee shop?), we “made a legal u-turn” and parked.
Oh, my. This is not your grandmother’s coffee shop – well, maybe it is, if you grew up in Rome – the Rome of 2012, perhaps. The new and vastly improved Caffe Roma is, simply, fabulous. Gorgeous modern artwork on the walls. Festive aromas. And, seated at one of the tables looking out, you can easily convince yourself that you are really in a city, with all the coolness that that implies and none of the disadvantages.
“Coffee?” we inquired. Alas, no American coffee at this hour (!). “Hot chocolate, perhaps?” That was doable, it turned out. Order placed, we turned our attention to the ambience. The melodious sounds of Italian surrounded us; this is, above all, an authentic Italian Caffe. In fact, the new and improved Caffe Roma is embarking on a series of “Italian film” nights, sure to please the art hall crowd. How cool is that?
So stop by Caffe Roma, early or late, for food or liquid – or maybe artistic – sustenance.
