Dining and Shopping
Roslindale is a magnet for fans of good food. Shopping options include Roslindale Fish Market with incredibly fresh offerings of Greek cheeses, oils, olives, as well as produce and fish, fileted on the spot. There’s a Halal butcher and Tony’s Market – a butcher shop and Italian Salumeria that will transport you to Sicily; Bob’s Pita Bakery with abundant choices of bread, bakery items, produce, oils, herbs and spices; the Boston Cheese Cellar, and more. The village is also the home of one of the most popular farmers’ markets in the state, open almost year-round with its winter quarters at the Sons of Italy Hall. Restaurants include Sophia’s Grotto, Birch Street Bistro, Delfino, 753 South, Pleasant Café(a classic diner), Fornax Bread Bakery, Effie’s Greek Restaurant and a nice sprinkling of Dominican eateries and pizzerias. If you’re shopping for clothing or items to beautify your castle, visit Birch Street House and Garden and Joanne Rossman (Purveyor of the Unnecessary and the Irresistible), both in the heart of the Village. For a less intimate shopping experience, Rozzie even has its own mini-Target department store! Rozzie is also the home of Sullivan’s pharmacy, one of the largest compounding pharmacies and health-aid suppliers in the state.
