DETROIT (WWJ) — Roma Cafe has officially closed its doors.
The family announced the closing through a sign posted on the restaurant’s door.
“After 127 years of continuous service at this location, Roma Cafe is out-of-business and permanently CLOSED,” the sign read.
The restaurant originally posted on its Facebook and Twitter pages earlier this month that it would be temporary closed throughout July “for pre-scheduled maintenance.”
However, this isn’t the end for this historic establishment. According to Crain’s Detroit Business, the head chef is planning a renovated location in Eastern Market this fall.
Roma Cafe was the oldest’s Italian restaurant in Detroit, which opened its doors 127 years ago.
