The Oldest Restaurant In Detroit Has A Truly Incredible History

Editor’s Note: Roma Cafe closed its doors for the final time on July 12th, 2017 after 127 years of service to the Detroit community. We wish to thank the owners for their dedication, hard work, and for all of the memories made at Roma across generations.

There’s no shortage of delicious places to eat throughout the Motor City, but there are only a handful that have truly stood the test of time. When you step into an age-old eatery, there’s a special sense of comfort in knowing that thousands of diners before you have shared a meal in the same space. Detroit’s oldest restaurant continues to dish out delicious meals over a century after it was opened.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
