You're greeted by lovely staff! The decor reminds me of a place in NYC like a Uni food hall. It is relaxed and the service is fantastic. You are not rushed.. I ordered a chicken wrap, it was very fresh and flavoursome. Made with just enough ingredients... Simple, fresh food.. The juices are so yummy, made to order. Its the... More

Slow service. Order a coffee and wait....and wait. ..then order breakfast and wait 25 minutes more for a completely rubbery overcooked Omelet. By this time you've either finished your coffee or it's stone cold. The last ever time here for me. This place has completely nose-dived over the past year and the jerk wearing a WSW cap (in Rozelle ffs)... More

Great corner location for people watchingparticularly on weekends when Rozelle markets are on. Menu and coffee is fine.Popular Spot for mums nubs as it is large and spacious. Busy so service was slow the day I visited.

I had a very nice breakfast here with friends. Interesting menu, very quick service and very impressed with my huge omelette that was filled with spinach, feta and mushrooms. Very yummy. Would definitely come back if I was in the area again.

I went today with my boyfriend we ordered baked eggs. Awful. Mine was completely overlooked (the yoke was rock hard) yet there was a heap of water on the bottom of the dish! My partner who also had the baked eggs, but of a different kind had his served with eggs completely undercooked.. The complete opposite of mine! His toast... More

I have been away from Sydney for a while and before I left Rosebud was an absolute favourite! The new manager, new unfriendly staff and a much smaller menu is really disappointing. Have been back a few times to see if there is improvement in any way and unfortunately there isn't. When I was last there another customer sitting at... More

This place used to be a local favourite of mine. Have been here many times, however the past few times I've been I've been really disappointed. The food has gone downhill and the service is average. I believe rosebud has changed owners recently. There are so many great cafés around rosebud, I won't be returning here.

My husband, kids and I went to the Rosebud cafe at least 5 times over a 3 week period in December '13 and Jan '14 as we were visiting from the UK and staying in Rozelle with family. The coffee (always flat whites), given what we're used to in the UK, was fantastic. Over our visits we had eggs and... More

So many good cafes to choose from in Rozelle. Rosebud used to be my favourite but so many things have gone downhill in the past year. After a string of bad experiences, poor service, overpriced food, inconsistency, we tried again today. Waited 30 mins to have our order taken. Tables weren't clean, snotty staff, it goes on and on. It... More
