Kitsch’n On Roscoe
Since 1998, Kitsch'n On Roscoe offers a relaxed & casual neighborhood-style space offering an award-winning brunch and comfort food menu, plus a full bar with a hip 70's "funk-ploitation" theme & too many tongue-in-cheek cultural decor references to mention (beer can collections, lava lamps, Billy Dee Williams "Colt 45" lighted signs, vintage lunchboxes, H&R Puff'n Stuff action figures, etc).
Whether you live in the area, are in town visiting, or just checking it out... this is one chill vantage point from which to soak it all in. The original Kitsch'n On Roscoe is the ultimate place to unwind in a neighborhood setting, whether seated inside (retro-metro 70's funk-o-licious), or alfresco-style in the sidewalk café and popular backyard tiki beer-garden.
This is where it all started... come in for our legendary weekend “Hangover Brunch” and grab a spot by the tiki-bar, sit down with friends at the front counter, or at one of our vintage Formica tables. Our staff will help steer you in to the "cult status" items on the menu that are sure to please. Order yourself a funky drink from the cocktail list, sit back and look around... you'll be sure to notice something that will take your thoughts to “back in the day".
