Cafe Bossa Nova owners open new bakery

Posted By on Mon, Dec 27, 2010 at 10:39 AM

Rosalia’s Family Bakery is now open next door to sister-restaurant Cafe Bossa Nova in a space that formerly housed Movie Gallery. The 2,900-square-foot space (which includes a large private meeting room) is modeled on a Brazilian panaderia, according to Dan Monroe, who co-owns the bakery and the restaurant with his wife, Rosalia Monroe. That means, he said, specialty Brazilian breads as well as “just about anything” you’d expect to find at a bakery — bagels, baguettes, cakes and cookies, and challah, rye, savory, white and whole grain breads.

With a full coffee bar serving fair trade coffee from Dean’s Beans, Rosalia’s will fill a coffee shop void in Hillcrest and may give Starbucks some competition, Monroe said. Salads and sandwiches and other lunch items will likely be part of the mix in the future, he said.

The bakery is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. The phone number is 319-7035, and the address is 2701 Kavanaugh.

    I'm kind of a nut on vampire films. For one thing, none of them — from "Nosferatu" to "Twilight" — are really about bloodsucking. They're always about something else: xenophobia, fear of having your metaphorical, jingoistic bloodlines polluted by a menacing foreign Other, hangups about sex, guilt about living so well in the West while countless millions in the Third World get paid pennies an hour to make Nike shoes and cute clothes for The Gap (drink up, you vampire you).
