Best coffee and a bight to eat in Darwin

A great, stylish cafe with great flavours and aromas coming out of the kitchen. A place to site and ponder, a place to catch up with friends.

I've visited this cafe many times since moving to Darwin 3 years ago. The latest was this morning. I had a large cappuccino, a slice of coconut cake and the eggs Bene with the salmon and spinach. All were to die for! The cafe was swamped this morning and I had to wait a while and unfortunately my order was... More

I go to the Roma Bar frequently for a good coffee, mango lassie and Eggs Royale. Love the tastey homemade hollandaise sauce! Friendly staff, decent service but expect to wait especially over the weekends. I would recommend!

We experienced none of delays others have. The brekky was huge, cooked from scratch with excellent quality ingredients and was reasonably priced at $17.50. Staff were cheerful and helpful and the coffee was good.

Luke warm coffee and juice served 60mins before food which is not great planning if the intention is to have coffee/juice with food. Food was great but took too long to be served. No apology was provided for lengthy delays experienced. No warning or heads up provided by counter staff about delays when ordering. Poor planning and organization of counter... More

I couldn't really remember what I ordered or what it tasted like because I was so disappointed with the service that I hurriedly ate my breakfast within 5 minutes and left. 25 minutes until the homemade lemonade was brought out. 55 minutes until the food came out. No one to regularly clear and wipe the tables. All the dirty dishes... More

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.
