Cafe Roma Set to Open Friday with New Owner

New Cafe Roma owner John Hiebert is ready to open the popular Cruz Bay Italian eatery on Friday evening, October 24. Hiebert bought Cafe Roma in July and spent the summer relocating his family from Vermont and renovating the second floor restaurant. The floor was re-tiled and the bar has a fresh coat of paint, but the characteristic Italian lanscapes are still on the walls. And the plush stars are still hanging from the ceiling – but they’ve been cleaned and are whiter than ever, Hiebert said. The menu is basically the same with a few new additions like caesar salad and chicken marsala and picatta. But don’t worry, Hiebert is not messing with the popular pizza recipe. Cafe Roma will be open for dinner Monday through Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. until season, when it will open seven days a week for dinner.
