Husband and I dropped in for a quick breakfast. Husband had a toasted bacon and egg sandwich, that's exactly what you get, no frills. I had a coffee, tasted alright, could be bigger, I like a large coffee.

We have been coming here for many years whenever in Darwin and is always our first choice for breakfast, always good food and coffee. Can be a little pricey but we always return and know what we are getting.

I'm traveling through Darwin and was having trouble finding decent wifi. The guidebook recommended this cafe and I'm glad I gave it a try. The eggs beni is really good, and the cappuccinos are yummy. The wifi is super fast so I got a lot of work done. Finally a place with good free wifi!

I travel to Darwin a lot for work and eat out for breakfast regularly. Roma bar is my favourite place for breakfast in Darwin. Excellent coffee and fantastic food. Highly recommend the vego breakfast and eggs Royale. They even make a fantastic banana lassi (type of smoothie)

To have something different for breakfast, go to this place. I had Indian breakfast and loved it. The portion was almost too big for me so I shared with my partner. Staff is nice and friendly, service is prompt, coffee is OK.

Had a simple breakfast here on a Sunday morning. The service, coffee and food was really good. The place had a good atmosphere with plenty of room to read the newspapers that were available. A Telstra WIFI hotspot is available right out the front so I used that for WIFI, but I was told WIFI is available from the cafe.... More
