We found this place purely by stumbling across it. There is a great variety of food for breakfast and the coffee is great. So much so we returned here for coffee every day and had breakfast here twice in our short visit to Darwin. Will satisfy both savoury and sweet cravings and good vego options too! Highly recommended.

I always get a great coffee here. We had breakfast on the May Day public holiday and the place was busy, but the outside seating is great at this time of year. Always one of our favourite places to stop and have a great coffee and a fresh cooked breakfast. Lots of items on the menu to suit all appetites.... More

So I'll get to my new addiction in a sec. But first I'll tell you why i like the Roma bar. The breakfast are good portions and they always have a little surprise that turns a standard breaky into a meal worth bringing your mates to. I haven't tried much of the lunch menu because for me it's hard to... More

I stopped in for breakfast while exploring Darwin and enjoyed a great breakfast experience. the service was friendly and efficient, the food was tasty (poached eggs and bacon with perfectly cooked soft poached eggs and a good amount of tasty smokey bacon). The atmosphere was relaxed and easy and the free wifi was fast - all in all a pretty... More

I will not be returning to Roma cafe. The food came out in dribs and drabs, the chips were soggy and the coffee was average. Service was slow and not attentive.

I visited Roma Bar on two occasions for breakfast and was not disappointed either time. The offer comprises traditional and more modern takes on breakfast. There is a pleasant and unhurried vibe which allows for an extended visit if time permits. I can particularly cite the omelette supreme for honourable mention.Not cheap at $16,but well-crafted and superbly filled with a... More

Selection of daily newspapers inc Indiginous publications which as a tourist I found really interesting to read over breakfast. Beautiful food that was delicious after a long night out. Great all day breakfast. Coffee... More

Nothing consoles me having to be up early like friendly service and a delicious breakfast. I received both at Roma Bar. My coffee and fresh juice were made and delivered by pleasant staff and my eggs benedict was cooked perfectly, and I loved how the hollondaise (which I could tell was made in-house) had that yummy vinegar tang to it,...
