Cafe Roze is one of those places that doesn’t have to try too hard to be cool. There’s a standard-issue neon sign, and somehow-not-obnoxious pink walls. But it’s the great food, coffee, and cocktails that make this a staple, whether we’re swinging by for stout waffles for breakfast, the vegetarian Roze Bowl with beet tahini for lunch, harissa chicken for dinner, or fries and a negroni in between. Cafe Roze is the perfect spot for a low-key date or to meet up with friends on any day of the week.
