Good quality breakfast

Good coffee. Interesting enough breafast menu. Service helpful but a bit slow. Overall a good spot for breakfast if you are fussy about your coffee

We waited 45 minutes plus for our breakfasts. The first time we followed it up we were told it would be another 15 minutes, the second time we spoke to the manager and he apologised and gave a free round of coffee's. This put our whole day behind schedule.

We visited daily for that coffee hit.. And what a fine coffee it is! Read the NT times while there and enjoyed all breakfast options. This is a 'best kept secret' for Darwin! Kids also loved the place!

Over 2 visits, we tried the smoked salmon/cream cheese/spinach croissant, omelette supreme, pancakes and big brekkie - all were good. It is nice to like sit outdoors especially with the lovely dry season weather. Amidst the not so good reviews, I like this place!

Greeted most days by an unsmiling, vacant waitress with absolutely no interpersonal skills. I would use the free WiFi to do my work, and always made sure I bought a coffee or cake for every hour I sat using it. The girls working there seemed to be pretty annoyed with this for some reason. The last straw was when I... More

After being disappointed with so many of Darwin's second rate restaurants, I decided to give Roma Bar Cafe and chance of changing my mind about the nonchalant attitude toward customer service and quality food. I had eaten here on a previous occasion and was only half impressed, however I was eager to be proven wrong. I was greeted by a... More

We ate a light lunch here on a hot day (all days in Darwin are hot I suspect). The air conditioning was a blessing. We really enjoyed our food (fresh fruit salad, fruit toast and rye toast). It was all of a high standard, and the service was speedy. A good CBD location.
