Basically, just not good enough for the prices they charge. Ruebens sandwich overpriced but the corned meat was AWOL. Hadn't been for some years, decided to give it another try. Not again. Sorry folks.

As locals we ventured out on Boxing Day for our first outing with our new baby. Due to Corner Bar being shut (our favourite - it rocks) we had to go to Rosebud. Normally we would not venture here due to the terrible reputation of Rosebud, with locals, but needs must.. Food was adequate/fine but the service is slow, as... More

2 years ago this was such a great asset to Rozelle. Now it dishes up bland, plastic, and tasteless pap for which you can wait forever. Arogant managers (owners?) at cash desk preside with total disdain and were severely critised today for trying to impose a huge public holiday surcharge. Plenty of welcoming places in the area which offer well... More

2 years ago Rosebud was my favourite cafe in Rozelle. As is often the case, the new owners have made changes which they believe are for the better, but alas, this is not the case. All the old staff have gone and have been replaced by backpackers who don't seem to have either any experience or understanding of what is... More

Often challenged by what to eat for my Sunday Brekky Rosebud's Corn Burgers hit the spot. Only negative was they needed some sweet chilli sauce which I received immediately when asked for. Top spot particularly after the Bay Run!

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

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.
