Cafe Roma looking good

Owner John Hiebert is still aiming for a November re-opening of Cafe Roma, guttedĀ  by fire in April.

“All of our equipment and furniture is loading into a container this week in Miami and heading to St. John,” John says. “I will definitely be asking for help unloading the trailer at the pond, transporting to Roma and getting it all up the stairs.”

John and Cafe Roma were named St. John Small Business of the Year (ironically, shortly after the fire) by the Virgin Islands Small Business Development Center.

New furniture includes new chairs. Good. The old Cafe Roma had horrible chairs.

“i had been hoping for new chairs for the past few years. I guess I should’ve been more careful about what I wished for,” John says.
