a simple no fuss place with good coffee and good food

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

Ah! I remember when the Roma Bar was 'the' place to go - the food is still great - but - the company are gregarious, mouthy yuppies - take heart - you can

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.

I googled "best breakfast in Darwin" and Roma Bar Cafe had some great reviews, so I decided to check it out. Certainly came away satisfied. The food and service was great.....and also great value for money

This place was a nice surprise, with really well prepared, yummy fresh breakfast meals of good size. The service was good and reasonably quick. The cost was higher than expected but it was the first local place to have something to eat at hence I could only compare to Sydney's prices. Overall, I'd definitely recommend it.

This place the food was OK, but was overpriced for what it was. Suggest trying elsewhere. e.g. $6 for a lemonade!!!!

We hoped to have a delicious breakfast whilst on holidays with our 2 and 5 year old children, and after being told 15-20 mins wait we thought that's fine. After waiting 25 mins we asked when our food might be ready, and were told another 20 mins. We were given a refund as we needed to get on a tour... More
