LOCAL LOVE: THE HOLY ROLLER
Did someone say aesthetics?
Confused aesthetics that is. When you walk into the front doors of the Holy Roller, you’re welcomed by a small, warm and intimate cafe setting that’s sure to please the eye. Don’t get too comfortable with this theme though, there are a few more surprises awaiting you when you decide to transition and make your way into the bar/lounge area and eventually to the dining room located at the back of the restaurant.
Serving as both a restaurant and a cafe, the Holy Roller boasts a menu of Detroit-style pizza, salads, seafood, ribs, cocktails, wine, coffee, chocolate, etc. Unfortunately, our arrival to the restaurant was untimely. The kitchen was closed and scheduled to reopen at 4PM, which was a few too many hours to wait in my state of hanger. That’s right, my patience is very thin when I’m hangry.
I spoke briefly with the owner and asked for permission to snap a few pics openly before leaving.
It’s evident that a decent investment amount, much creative effort and planning went into the design of this artsy place. Well, money well spent. Although my stomach left hungry but my eyes left full.
