We visited Roma Bar for breakfast, and were very underwhelmed by the experience. Our coffees took quite some time to come out, despite half the cafe being empty of patrons. The coffee was okay, but not fantastic. We both got the big breakfast option, and we were disappointed that our food was simultaneously burned, yet also lukewarm at best. The... More

Range of snacks and meals. Friendly service. Good meeting place for the 'lefties' in town. Has a history of supporters of environmental and indigenous issues. Not too expensive and located in Cavanagh St, easily accessible to city workers.

Roma offers a great breakfast in a nice relaxed environment (if you are there early), good coffee and a large interesting menu. The service is fast and friendly. I have only ever had breakfast there and it is always good, put it on your list of eateries when in Darwin.

Roma Bar has been around for years. Consistently good breakfast. Coffee isn't the best in town but fine. Service is quick. Been many times and always enjoyed my meal. Always filled with locals, always a good sign. Indoor & outdoor seating. Same woman has been taking the order's for years.

We've been coming here most Sunday mornings for he past 3-4 mths. Plenty of spots to sit but get in early to avoid the crowds as when its busy you may have to wait up to 30-40min for breakfast. They have a wide selection of meals (MUST try banana pancakes! ) and coffee is always consistent. Only downfall is clearance... More

We were recommended to this café by the owner of the safari tour we went on and were not disappointed. Yhe menu was quite varied and included some more unusual dishes, such as sago pudding cooked with coconut milk and served with palm syrup which I ordered initially. Unfortunately the person taking my order did not tell me that they... More

Awesome coffee made on my own homemade almond milk. This is great for me as the "generic" coffee shops wont cater for this. Now going back daily. Thank You

Nice spot on the corner is quite popular and always busy on weekends. Do and excellent breakfast and brunch and even just going there for coffee is worth it as it's really great. Service is a bit slow during peak periods, but it's worth the wait.

The Roma bar has just taken carriage of a new coffee machine. The coffee was excellent before but it's even better now! If you are looking for great food and excellent coffee Roma bar is the place to go. It's a Darwin icon.

A late brunch in this case. Luckily, it was a Sunday and we weren't in a rush. The food order took almost an hour to come out. My omelette was nice. My wife's fried eggs uncooked (the whites were still runny let alone the yolk). She had ordered the eggs cooked. Her bacon was burnt and the sausages looked like... More
