Romeo’s Espresso in Broken Arrow Offers a Much Needed Retreat This Holiday Season
Next week is Thanksgiving and then we will usher in the Christmas season with all of its fun, family memories and crazy shopping! Since many of us will be eating on the run, I wanted to find a great little place where you could grab lunch, a cup of coffee and then shop some more for those perfect gifts.
Open since March, Romeo’s Espresso Cafe, located in downtown Broken Arrow is a nice place to grab a little breakfast or a quick but satisfying lunch to refuel before returning to holiday business.
On a recent afternoon, I stopped in for a quick bite. A Facebook friend had mentioned that this was a good place to have lunch and since it is in my neck of the woods, I wanted to give it a try.
This quaint but trendy little place has colorful, impressionistic-style paintings on the wall and a friendly, homey feel. With breakfast items like the Avocado and Egg Croissant ($5.29), a Belgian Waffle with strawberries or banana ($4.99), or Biscuits with Sausage Gravy ($3.99) you can have a hearty meal that will get you through a morning of holiday shopping or baking.
For lunch, they offer a bistro menu with a good selection of sandwiches and salads, including the Southwest Chicken Salad ($7.99), California Turkey Sandwich ($8.49) and the Loaded Baked Potato Grilled Cheese ($7.99) and more.
They also have a new chalkboard special for $7.99 that includes half a sandwich and a cup of their new Tomato Basil Soup. This is what I had the day I was there. The soup was reminiscent of Campbell’s tomato soup, but in a good way. Slightly sweet, it had small chunks of tomato and a mild basil flavor.
For my sandwich, I chose the Loaded Baked Potato Cheese. The filling, brimming with bacon and cheese had a pleasing crunch from potato chips. While the sandwich was not as full as I was expecting, it was good and was delicious dipped into my soup.
They also have a selection of muffins, cupcakes and cookies. Although I was really too full for dessert, everything looked yummy. I actually saw a friend there while I was having lunch and she was excited about her Oreo Cupcake.
Even though I didn’t try any espresso on this visit, they have a large selection of coffee drinks and smoothies too. What would be better on a chilly day than a big cup of espresso? It will warm you up and supply a much needed boost of caffeine so that you can finish that last minute shopping.
So while you’re out and about this holiday season, stop into Romeo’s, sip a cup of espresso, enjoy some lunch and maybe even save room for dessert. Since they also have a small kids menu, the kids will enjoy Romeo’s too.
