The Rosebud has been renamed the Rozelle Espresso. We visited for a late breakfast and it was very busy, especially popular with families with small children. However, we managed to find a table and ordered the Eggs Benedict with Salmon and a Croque Monsieur plus a flat white and English Breakfast... read more

We were feeling hungry so we decided to have lunch at the first cafe that came across our way. Rozelle Espresso Cafe looked clean and spacious and is conveniently across the Rozelle market. We thought we would get something quite decent to eat here. We ordered a cheeseburger and a club sandwich. I must admit I was really disappointed with... More

We gave up using this once iconic bistro in Rozelle approx 12 months ago due to a mammoth drop in service and, with visitors over Christmas and New Year, decided to 'try again' to get out of the rain for a family brunch for 6 adults when the place was, at best, only 20% occupied. BIG MISTAKE............. poor service by... More

Ordered a freshly squeezed green apple juice with no ice ($8), proceeded to watch them make half a glass of juice and top it up with soda water. Then saw the owner drink from the soda bottle. Drink was brought to me and had red juice stuck to the inside of the glass. Told the waitress the glass was dirty... More

We had late brunch here, a toasted sandwich mine on rye another on sour dough. Both cheese and ham with tomato both good, hot a tiny amount of salad leaves would have made it better but it is table service and the waitress from Southern Ireland was very efficient and nice. I think it's worth a try we sat outside... More

Rosebud (Now Rozelle Espresso), took 20+ minutes on a quiet day to get 2 orange juices which the staff continually walked past. We were then charged $13 for both which we saw them pour out of a nudie orange juice bottle. At these kinds of markups it would have been cheaper to get the money off a loan shark for... More

This place is terrible.. Poor food, rude and slow service. They have changed their name to Rozelle Espresso, - in my view to try to disassociate itself with its very poor past as Rosebud!!! Actually I think my 1 month old baby was banned from this place, earlier this year!!! One thing going for it, is the location/building. It could... More

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
