In honor of 10 successful years of business, Caffè RōM, invites guests to celebrate their anniversary with a yearlong schedule of events. The European-style caffé and Italian-inspired coffee bar has three downtown locations (in the Hyatt Center, in the Prudential Building, and at The Shoreham) that will feature an anniversary party, contests and giveaways, seasonal specials and more.
To commemorate a decade of exceptional dining and coffee service, on Wednesday, May 27, Caffè RōM will host an anniversary party at all locations from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. featuring a complimentary cup of the 10-year anniversary limited edition "Dieci Anni" coffee blend for all patrons. 12-ounce bags will also be available to purchase for $10.95 each beginning May 27. Complimentary anniversary cake will be passed out, created by bakers Axel and Ambrose Erkenswick who consult on all the house made pastries and bread at Caffè RōM.
Additional festivities at all locations on Wednesday, May 27, will include raffles for a chance to win free breakfast or lunch catering for 10. Specifically, the Prudential and Hyatt Center locations will raffle off gift bags that include an anniversary edition Timbuk2 messenger bag and gift cards. Caffè RōM will also hold a #10YearsOfRoM Instagram photo contest in which guests are invited to hashtag their favorite memories and photos of their RōM-an experiences. The winning photo will be chosen in August and receive an anniversary edition RōM logo Timbuk2 bag.
