There's something about the name Roxy (or Roxanne) that always reminds me of hookers and red light districts. Funny, that. ;-)

Last night went went to Roxy Café for dinner with another couple. The service here is truly exceptional; personal and friendly while being incredibly efficient. Our meals were delicious and the Entertainment Book discount (a main for a main) makes Roxy even more appealing. Between us, we ordered tagiliatelle, duck confit, sirloin steak, and a pork fillet, with breads and bruschetta to start. An older version of their menu exists online; it's still similar, but adding a few dollars to the price of each dish would make it more accurate.

Then it was over the road to Dorothy Patesserie for coffee and cake. (Why didn't we stay at Roxy? The dessert menu looked good, but the prices across the road looked even better.) Dorothy’s was simply delightful. We enjoyed hot chocolates, decadent chocolate cake, and chocolate truffles to finish. Our service was fantastic and the shop was warm and cosy on a cold and blustery winter’s night. Chocolate heaven!

You are absolutely right. It's always motivating to see how everyone who has a 101 list is slowly making progress to accomplish everything on their list...even you, all the way in New Zealand! The wonders of technology today...connecting people all over the world. Good luck on your journey of 101's! :)

Hi Cafe Chick!
I love your 101 list!! You're doing a great job on it!
It was fun reading over your book list and seeing which ones you love.
Wow! You have so much music... the new song list is cute... Etta James is so awesome... puts me in a dreamy mood.
What do you do for a living?
Is it winter there now?
We are smack dab in the middle of summer here in the USA.

My sister's name is Roxanne! :D The restaurant sounds lovely! Hubby and I like to go to a different place for desserts often as well.
