It’s often a challenge to find an open seat at A’roma Roasters, an eclectic Railroad Square roastery/ice cream shop. Writers, artists, students and the bohemian-set commingle happily, sating munchies, catching rays outside and regulating caffeine deficiencies.

Fair trade coffee, onsite roastery, tea and breakfast and lunch nibbles, including salads.

Wifi, open mic and live music. Open late. 95 5th Street, Santa Rosa, 707-576-7765.
