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

Situated in Rozelle this nice cafe / restaurant has some 'airs and graces' and some 'sins' too. We sat at the pavement tables for a Sun morning coffee + ... I had a Capuccino (slow to arrive and rather cool) and Muffin, which was sizeable and delicious (and good value at $4). My partner had the French Toast (not a... More

I'm part of a business networking group (BNI) whose members meet every Thursday morning from 6.45am! Well Rosebud staff are always friendly, even that early, provide excellent food and good coffee. We are always given a choice of three hot or cold meals and every week the quality is the same - excellent. Now that's tough to maintain, however Amber... More

After a number of visits to the Rosebud, it's consistently slow and disinterested service outshines the food. Sitting inside or out doesn't seem to make a difference. The backpacker wait staff have no interest in doing their job and every time, I've had to visit the barista/kitchen for a menu, to order and to pay. It's a large restaurant, tending... More

Rosebud always delivers - terrific coffee and yummy breakfast choices. They also run themed cuisine nights, their Spanish Paella nights are awesome! The restaurant is casual and family friendly but also suits my business meeting needs. Free wifi and great service make it my number one pick in Rozelle.
