The food that we had there was really good I had the chicken salad sandwich.

Great ambiance !! Good food and company . They allowed a group of music students to perform at their cafe. So kind !
Love love love love
The cakes are delish, as well as the teas and coffee. Friendly staff makes you want to keep coming back.
One of coolest places in SBC. 3 individual rooms for working/relaxing/reading
The coffee and atmosphere were amazing but the cakes seemed dry and the adult beverages were pretty lackluster.
This placy is so cozy and if you are interested in open mic be sure to call them, try they sandwhiches/salads, and enjoy some tea/coffee/beer.
Great little place!
Super friendly barista / bartender. Neat selection of coffee. Cool vibe with plenty of space.
Awesome place. And a very awesome and friendly staff
love the atmosphere and the staff, prices are great too!! :)
Best lil coffee shop in Bouseir La.
A unique place to visit. It's in the old area of downtown Bossier City, called "East Bank".
Excellent "retro" little dive with fantastic vibe. Food and drinks were great and prices very reasonable.
My new Zen ..relax...peaceful..fun place to go and chill.. love it here. And if you have not been here you are definitely missing out..
Delicious food and coffee served by highly friendly and professional staff. Great location and atmosphere. Like no other place on Earth.

Cute dining experience. Love the decor!
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...
Great experience definitely a place to hang out
First time ever! Amazing!!
Really cool place to eat and relax.
Such a great atmosphere!!
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...
Wonderful, laid back atmosphere!
Excellent coffee shop serving excellent coffee by excellent people. I guess you can say that I had an all around excellent experience. Would and will go back regularly. Truly a spot worth seeing by tourists and locals alike More...

Brooklyn was our waiter and she was so nice we loved everything that she recommended. We will be back.
Clarissa Jean Peck
Had no idea this place existed. Super cute cafe. Authentic coffee with full food menu too. (Vegetarian/Vegan options) Very relaxed atmosphere.
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...
Nice place to relax
Surroundings service and menuvery nice. Takes you back in time
James Dala Smith
Great food, groovy atmosphere

Sherry Sebren Pryor
very good food. service is great.
Thank you guys so much for hosting our Centenary Graduation party! What a wonderful job! The venue was amazing and so was the food! I highly recommended Retro 521!
...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! More...
Great sandwiches and a very cool place
Great atmosphere, food and coffee
I like to go here to write in the booths. It is secluded and helps me to focus.
The Best Me
Cozy, welcoming and free wifi
Great food. Good service, very fun spunky vibe. I love the food, chocolate cake is the best!!!!!!
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...
Good coffee and fantastic atmosphere!
I love this place! It’s not super busy most of the time so it’s nice and quiet, and the menu is flexible as long as you ask and will pay for substitutions. The service is always really good, and I highly recommend their “crack cake.” Trust me! More...
I love the interior of Retro 521. It’s such an interesting spot.
This is a great little local spot for meeting friends, sipping yummy coffee, eating crack cake or chicken salad or having meetings in one of their small meeting areas. And, they have a venue attached where they host great events of their own or for you! More...
Amy O'Pry Massey
Awesome place!! Will def be back!!
Sharon Paradis Grindal
The best coffee around, great menu and atmosphere!
Jeanette Letterman Watson
Great Retro feeling. You can grab great coffee and a meal, set back on a sofa and enjoy. Great place to set and talk with friends for hours.
Good atmosphere my mocha was great
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...
Everything is great here. All the cakes are out of this world. The salads are excellent.
Perfect name. Very neat place. Recommend.
Had a corporate meeting here. The service, food and atmosphere were awesome. Will definitely be back.
Karen Ballinger Mitchell
Location and atmosphere were great for our banquet, but the food wasn’t great. I was a little disappointed.
I have eaten there as a customer and attended an event in the Venue. What a lovely place! The staff is always friendly, and the food is always delicious!
Brooke Zeigler Johnston
Highly recommend their murder mystery parts! It was a great time and the dinner was delicious!
Samantha Belle Talbert
Awesome first time experience. One of a kind environment, great study nooks! Nicest staff and BOMB coffee!
Really great concept well executed. I was able to easily sample all their drip offerings and pick what I liked. Then sit down in what felt like an eclectic aunts home with a big mug of coffee being welcome for seconds. A real gem!!
Will definitely be back again and again!
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...
I so love the atmosphere and the customer service was excellent
Great atmosphere, plenty of yummy things to choose from, and roomy!!
Great place to get coffee, food, have a meeting. Highly recommend!
I took my son last weekend to see Santa and the experience was amazing. Everyone should take their kids here for Santa. Employees are friendly and the atmosphere is great. Also, the passion tea is the best tea that I've ever had lol! More...

Robin Nickelson Jones
This is an extremely cozy place to visit. The staff is so friendly and the food is super yummy!
Thought it was amazing and totally worth it!! Not pricey at all! You get a full meal for $11 which is less than you pay at any other sandwich shop in town. Coffee cheaper than Starbucks and Tastes Amazing! More...
Uriah Joseph Oxford
Cool cool cool place. Love the nostalgic atmosphere! Free popcorn with unique flavor. Had chicken salad sandwich—delicious. Coffee is legit—and a complimentary piece of cake—I think it was crack cake? Crazy delicious and unforgettable. Vibe is chill. Rooms for private use. A unique place. More...
Christy Joel Johnston
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...
Jo Ann Guertin Biggers
My kids had a surprise birthday party for me at Retro 521. The owner is so sweet and accommodating. The decor is so adorable. Loved it all.

This place is really unique and the food and coffee are amazing! I just had a turkey sandwich, hipster salad, and voodoo coffee!!! � And the staff here are so friendly! You definitely need to try. More...
Noble is BY FAR one of the sweetest people I’ve yet to meet! He made my whole family (including my three crazy children) feel right at home. I will definitely be coming back for both the amazing coffee and atmosphere! More...
I checked out Retro for the firm time today! The coffee was wonderful (I just had a cup of Rebel brew), and the food was delicious. I made my own wrap, and the salad that came with it was simple but fantastic!!! Can't wait to return and try the chicken salad. Also, Michelle is the best!!! It even has neat private spaces if you want to read, study, or have a private conversation. Do yourself a favor and check out this cool space. More...
Christina Puso Turner
I absolutely love the atmosphere! I love all the coffee shops in the area but this is by far my fav! From the deco to the people! Coffee is great of course. I love the fact they have little rooms you and your friends can go sit in and close the curtain if you’re doing a study group or just privacy. A must visit place! More...
Natalie Mejias Ferrington
Love the environment here! The crack cake and cafe au lait are delicious! Great place to study, read a book, or just relax with a cup of coffee.
Kym Allen Strahan
Just enjoyed an amazing lunch at this beyond awesome cafe'.

The atmosphere is great, the staff is so courteous, and the menu is awesome. The coffee is excellent, and if you’re there for breakfast I highly recommend the sausage egg and cheese wrap!
Ashley Nicole Lindner
We tried it for the first time today and I can’t say enough good things about this place. The owners were very sweet and welcoming. The barista was helpful and went over the top. The service was fast. The environment was cool and nothing like you’ve seen before. We will definitely be going back. � More...
We stopped in on our tour for the Municipal clerk’s. The samples of coffee were great! You have a very cool vibe and set up. Will definitely be back soon! Thank you for being a part of the tour! More...

Love this place. Cute and eclectic. Great coffee and service
Christie knocked it out of the park with 521 , Great food in a cool place stop and see for yourself !!!
Nice friendly staff. Good Americano coffee
Super cute place very relaxing atmosphere and great coffee to
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...
Mary Childers Baker
My best friend and I spent 7 hours catching up! We had a great time giggling, reminiscing and solving problems of the world. The servers were very patient and kind. Thanks for a great day More...
Gabrielle is amazing!! So helpful and sweet!!

The best coffee shop. Hands down.
Good meal. Very interesting!

Very cool place. If you haven’t tried it out, you should.

Mallory Ann Davis
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...
Great food, coffee, tea, and atmosphere. You will love it!
Nice and chill environment
Bossier’s newest Taste of Cultured Elegance in Coffee Shops, right there on Barksdale Blvd’s newest district! Quite the eclectic, artistic feel for business, families, and even your next big party event! Great coffee and AMAZING FOOD with a GREAT PRICE!!! More...
Great coffee made with beans bought locally. YuM!!!
Cool place we sat in one of the rooms. Had both versions of the chicken salad
My absolute favorite coffee shop in town! The decor is so much fun, the staff and owners are genuine, and they have private rooms where you can have a meeting or just relaxing right. I've edited two books here, and more to come! More...
Hands down the best coffee in the SBC...Great staff and cool environment, You also must try the crack cake.
Love this place. In a great area. Great coffee and FANTASTIC ALL SPICE CAKE!!!
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...
The Hipster Salad is delicious
I love the atmosphere, food, coffee, location, owner, and staff. Everything was absolutely amazing!
Quaint spot with plenty of open seating. And some privacy if you need it. Coffee was delicious.
Had such a good time at the Toadwarts Murder Mystery!!! Will definetly make this a habit ❤️
The staff make you feel like family. The coffee was delicious. The grilled cheese sandwich was divine. Perfect place for writing.

Everything about Retro 521 is AWESOME!
The food was very good and the atmosphere is calming. I love it!
The food, coffee, and desserts were all great! Such a fun atmosphere and great staff!
Absolutely delightful space!! What a gem!
This has to be the best coffeehouse in Shreveport/Bossier area. As an artist I felt right at home here!
The owners are very nice. Picked up some cake slices that were amazing. Crack cake didnt make the car ride home. Yum
Great atmosphere, good food. Friendly staff.
Just come see.
Really friendly employees, great service, delicious food which was fresh. Amazing flavors and outstanding hot cocoa!! Worth the trip to this gem in a newly renovated area of Bossier.
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...
Love the coffee and the atmosphere!!
The whole staff here are amazing! Great customer service, excellent atmosphere and I recommend checking them out
Lee Walker Merrill
I came to hear my cousin sing, but I’ll be back for the comfortable vibe and delish coffee and breakfast croissant. A perfect place for a spontaneous coffee date or a business meet-up. 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...
great place. We just stumbled into it looking for antique shops. didn't find them but found this quaint cafe. definitely coming back next visit!!
The best place in town for Coffee, a light lunch and delicious cakes/snacks. Great service and friendly, helpful staff.
Delightful place! Baristas asked if it was my first time. When I said yes, she actually introduced herself to me, told me a bit about the place. I will definitely be back as often as possible More...
I absolutely recommend this place to everyone. Have eaten here three times and love the chicken salad. Came with some friends for a ladies night out and we had a very good time. Jon-Mical is an awesome server. Oh and the coffees are wonderful. More...
Great service, food was good.

Great atmosphere! Love the private areas to drink coffee and visit. My cappuccino was great and my smoked turkey sanwich was too. Will return often.
Jordan West Barnum
Sometimes, a cup of coffee just isn't enough. So this week our goal was to scour the city for more. After our 3rd adventure we found Retro 521. The owners have created a simple jewel that gives you the perfect atmosphere to unwind and truly indulge in that sip of caffeine delight. Definitely our new favorite place. More...
Absolutely the best place in town for Coffee, Breakfast, Breakfast Desserts, Lunches, and a great time. Retro 521 has a great selection of premium trendy brews. The environment and atmosphere is amazing! I highly recommend and love this place! More...

One of a kind all across the board!
Great place to eat, chill and work. The menu is delicious and the crack cake is a must have.
This place has such a cool vibe! The chicken salad was really good, and the regular salad that came with it was AMAZING! They have a few little separated booths with a curtain if you want to chat semi privately, or the open regular area with some nice couches. I love the decor! The food was a bit slow to come out, but I was there hanging out so it wasn't an issue for me. I'll definitely be back! More...
Great venue... Fun vibe. Easy to work with owners!
We were incredibly impressed with the ambiance and style. We were warmly greeted by the staff and owner and loved the food as well. It made this Dj wish I was not moving away from the area. This is one venue facility i would have loved to perform in! 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...
Great funky atmosphere. You get personal service by the friendly staff. The cappuccino was really good as well as the chocolate frappuccino. I love the variety of sitting areas where you can hang out comfortably. There are more private areas available. The next room provides a much larger area if you need venue space. More...
Great vibe, good food, excellent coffee & service
Awesome experience!! Great food and staff.
Friendly and helpful staff each time l go.
Too retro for me.
Great place to grab a coffee or lunch. Delicious White Chocolate Mocha!!

Great atmosphere. Very casual.
Cool little place.
If you want a variety of coffee with a relaxed atmosphere, great friendly service and a touch of warm smile, this is the place.A great selection of foods and snacks too. More...

Must experience this one for yourself! The shop has a variety of seating, including the neatest semi private nooks for couples or small groups, each with unique decorations. We even ran into an old world Santa there too! More...
We stopped by during East Bank ribbon cutting and we were blown away! The coffee was great and the decor was awesome! Can’t wait to come back!
Awesome ambience, and great coffee! Plus, there are private little rooms with curtains if you have business to tend to! The pecan coffee is amazing!
Nice place and atmosphere. The pictures don't do it justice. I highly recommend visiting this place.
Zesty Chicken Salad was delicious. I love the flower child tea!
Great coffee shop! Met one of the owners and she is awesome. Big, open and airy. Great atmosphere.
Everyone has to check this place out!! The food, coffee, and desserts are always fresh. They have the best customer service in Shreveport/Bossier. The only place I want to get coffee from! More...

Sometimes, a cup of coffee just isn't enough. So this week our goal was to scour the city for more. After our 3rd adventure we found Retro 521. The owners have created a simple jewel that gives you the perfect atmosphere to unwind and truly indulge in that sip of caffeine delight. Definitely our new favorite place. More...
Cutest little coffee shop, ever! If you’re looking for something unique to the area and great coffee and treats, this is the place. It’s so cozy and relaxed, definitely a new hangout! More...
Delicious coffee and tea, nice layout and atmosphere.
Awesome atmosphere & great food/drinks. The hipster salad is a must!
Love the atmosphere and staff!
Neat place. Free coffee, water bottles, popcorn when you're getting a meal. Food was good. Employees are friendly. Can't give the full 5 stars because the place seems to not be quite finished yet, still seems like a work in progress.
I attended an event here and I was blown away. The decor and the atmosphere was amazing and so unique. The staff was very friendly and made you feel comfortable. Also hands down Retro 521 has the best coffee in town I can't wait to visit again! More...
I've always been a coffee shop kind of gal and as a recent new resident of Haughton, La I was searching for local coffee shops to break up the monotony of working from a home office! This cafe has fantastic coffee/espresso and delicious breakfast and sandwiches! I love that there are water bottles on every table for customers to enjoy :) This is an experience in a themed coffee house cafe and I loved it! I'll be a frequent, satisfied customer! More...
The sandwiched are very tasty. Just a little on the pricey side.The place is loaded with cool stuff to look at.

Fun place to pop in for a delicious light lunch!

Finally got a chance to check out this cool little spot. Friendly service and great food. Will definitely return for more and more.
This place is too cool! The atmosphere has a very artistic nature to it. The decor, the piano, the cute little pop corn and snow cone stand, and the cake displays, only add to the delicious food and COFFEE served up!!! The people who work there are very welcoming and make you feel relaxed, like you're posted up at home, sippin' & chillin'. Oh I will be back, and there is nothing anyone can do to stop me ���� More...
Ok finally got to go to Retro 521 in downtown bossier...it was fabulous!!!! Can't wait to go back for coffee and dessert, the chicken salad is outstanding. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Plus the place speaks to my vintage and eclectic soul. Eat local you'll be glad you did. More...
