Café Bossa Nova was founded in March 2002 by Rosalia and Dan Monroe. Rosalia, using the recipes she carried in her heart from her native Brazil, and with the support of her husband Dan, her sons Marcio and Joe, and her daughter Adriana the restaurant was born in what once was the kitchen of the old Café di Roma. In a tiny kitchen, with only a hot plate burner and a convention oven,Rosalia started serving lunch to a curious crowd who immediately acquired a taste for her now famous cheese bread and black beans and rice.

In response to growing demand from her lunchtime customers, she began serving dinner as well, and in January of 2005 Cafe Bossa Nova doubled its serving space, expanded
 its kitchen, and its cuisine. Her patrons now enjoy Cafe Bossa Nova six days a week, including Sunday Brunch serving both Brazilian and American breakfast plates with a South American twist.

Rosalia's love of people in both Arkansas and the world translates into her wonderful dishes, soothing Bossa Nova music and an atmosphere that reflects the warmth of her Brazilian culture.

    I love this restaurant for the tastiest GF menu. They mostly use rice so they have many choices. Just look for the little heart on menu and tell them Dempsey Bakery sent you.
