Really nice coffee served by one of Darwins best baristas. Nice friendly place to kick back with the kids or friends or grab a coffee on the go. A nice selection of food as well, although I only ever get caffeine here! As usual in Darwin, relaxed and friendly staff.

The friend I visit in Darwin loved this place and had a tab going all of the time. And was there just about every day. Relaxed and friendly. I always have good food and service there. Don't forget they are mentioned in a Midnight Oil song too. I was there a couple of years ago, though I did not have... More

On our last day we went to Restaurant for Breakfast and it was great food. My husband and I had most enjoyable breakfast. the Restaurant has plenty of... More

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
