The coffee and atmosphere were amazing but the cakes seemed dry and the adult beverages were pretty lackluster.

Tonight was my first time to eat at retro 21. It was by far one of the best experiences ... me , my daughter & mom went to eat here for the first time. We decided to try the burger bites which comes with chips...the burger was SO good. It was perfect. The bun was nice & crunchy. The meat patty had really good to. And ...... the strawberry margarita was the best one I’ve ever had! I’ll definitely be back here! Plus I like the retro theme that they have! I give 5 stars! More...

OMG! Am I really in Bossier City, Louisiana? This place is AWESOME! Unlike anyplace else in this area. Decor, service, coffee, staff, "Crack cake", and the MUSIC...Totally '80s! Located in Bossier City's Eastbank District, Owner/Chef Kristi Tift makes sure all of little things are taken care of so your experience each and every time is AWESOME. PLEASE, come check out one of Bossier City's best places to hang with friends or relax by yourself, you will not be disappointed. More...

Best non Starbucks coffee I've had in Shreveport. Tried CC's previously and was sorely disappointed. Coffee is ground and pressed to order for your latte, would recommend this over Rhino. Great atmosphere.

This place is absolutely authentic, with outstanding, freshly prepared food and the best coffee, locally roasted. The staff is super friendly. Retro 521 has a truly retro feel, like a New Orleans cafe in the 70s, with all sorts of artistic decor. More...

...first time at Retro 521, and it was terrific! I met some friends from my yoga group, and the ambience/vibe was perfect to just sit, talk, and laugh. The staff was super-nice and the food was great. I ate the Organic & Zesty Chicken Salad ( a scoop of each) with a flax-seed wrap, and it was delicious. I also recommend the Flower child Tea (yum) and the Retro Hipster Salad. Before we left we made plans to have our meet-up at Retro 521 next month, although I am sure I will be back before then!

Took my daughter there for our first visit. Definitely will not be our last. Very neat decorations blending coffee decorations, vintage music and games. Private booths available and the service was great. My daughter and I are playing a game over coffee and soda and the barista brought us over some bottled water on the house. Everyone that worked there asked us either if they could help us or if we were doing Ok. It's like a retro Starbucks found Chick-fil-As service.Edit* Have come back three times since. Still awesome service and great staff. Have officially made this our weekly Daddy/Daughter hang out place. More...

Kelli Fitzwater The evening was PERFECT! We had our high school prom at Retro 521 and it was done in an excellent fashion. The owner and her staff were kind, completely helpful, delightful to work with, and have a desire to make the experience wonderful. The venue was lovely and had ample room, the food was delicious and plentiful, and the dessert was just right to finish off a delicious meal. The students were able to get coffees made if they wanted them and the atmosphere was perfect for the dancers and non-dancers alike, with games and fun areas to sit and visit. I would highly recommend the Retro 521's staff and owner, Christi, and the venue for any small school's prom and I know that it would be perfect for a wedding or evening party. Thank you for "Some Enchanted Evening" prom! More...

I visited Retro for lunch, and an excellent lunch it was. I wish I could remember the name of the salad, it was big and had grilled vegetables on it. Everything was excellent and extremely fresh tasting. The coffee is also YUM and the desserts (cakes, cookies, muffins etc) are to die for!!! The service is very friendly, and the decor is very eclectic and really RETRO. You can have your own private corner, if you want to do some work, or you can sit at one of the tables and enjoy time with friends. I will be back to taste more of things Retro offers in their very unique environment. Fun place for sure!!! More...

This is my new favorite go to coffee spot! The food is great, the coffee is amazing but the atmosphere is by far what keeps me coming back! I can work in one of the private rooms or lounge on the couches with friends. Plenty of space for our large parties and the staff checks on us and makes sure we are well taken care of! But the best part....ITS KID AND ANIMAL FRIENDLY! Try the organic chicken salad and the retro crack cake! It’s life changing. � More...

A couple of friends and I came in for brunch today. This is my first visit and enjoyed the location and atmosphere. Its quant, eclectic, and warming to the soul from the moment you walk in. We sat towards the front and enjoyed our company and the wait staff is very, very friendly and helpful. They have good coffee which is self serve and a few options but must be drank when fresh due to the thermos situation. If it sits for too long it almost over brews itself. With a simple menu of breakfast and lunches it keeps the kitchen staff stress free, however, the portions are smaller than I anticipated. With a breakfast platter I got one egg, three slices of bacon, a single strawberry, and a slice of toast. The meal was a good quality it nothing to write home about, only a Google review . The place picked up around lunchtime but never more than five tables full. Oh, and let me tell you about seating. This place was previously a beauty salon, and a tattoo shop so they're working with what they have. With the "stalls" theres a table for two and a couch I'm each one almost like a VIP dining experience. Kinda kinky and not sure what's going on with it but theres no mandatory seating arrangements there making it fun to look into once or twice. I'd recommend this for a casual dining experience because it's easy to chat, casually eat, and a hometown vibe. More...

The Noxhelm Murder Mystery dinner was an awesome experience, it was my first murder mystery dinner ever! Getting into my character was SO fun and being able to be a part of the experience made it even more fun. The food was amazing! “Taco night” ended up being homemade taco soup, homemade fajitas with the works, and pumpkin empanadas with ice cream for dessert. Talk about YUM. I would highly recommend the mystery dinners for date night, girls night, or if you just want to go solo. More...

Very cool atmosphere and fun brewed coffees such as apple strudel (so good). It was pretty much empty when we were there a Saturday morning, they have 80s music playing and rockers outside to sit. The servers were sweet, food was a little pricey, but good although they were out of a few things. Will probably come back! More...

Always a fun environment! You literally forget you are at a coffee shop, just sit, sip, and escape. Food is consistently fresh and great! I appreciate simple ingredients paired to perfection! Try the Organic Chicken Salad on Spring Mix - a delicate balance of flavor that is perfect for a light eater. (my favorite!) I really appreciate the free popcorn treat, and toast with homemade olive oil dressing - both delicious. Keep up the great work with bringing back Downtown Bossier, you are why I visit. More...

They have private cubbies for college students or entrepreneurs to get some work done as well as well as comfy couches for gatherings. The decor is an experience for the eyes. Truly interesting and eye-catching. Like I said, I’ll be back! More...

The greatest little hidden gem of a coffee shop! Their cakes are to die for, and the tea and coffee are amazing. Way better than Starshmucks could ever hope to be. The owner and staff are attentive, and seem to really value you as a customer, regardless of how long you're there, or what you buy. Also, and I never say this, but check out the bathroom while you're there. It's basically a broom closet but the owner even managed to make THAT amazing! I love this place! More...
