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

Had a late breakfast and coffee, the service was fast and friendly. Prices were good and value for money. All day breakfast and the special board is worth a look.

My wife and I came here because of our son's recommendation and were pleasantly surprised. The food and the coffee was most enjoyable and the service was efficient and friendly.

Our first morning in Darwin we stumbled onto the Roma Bar Cafe and had breakfast. The food was really tasty, from the specials board we chose the Coconut and Ginger Sago with grilled Pineapple and Coconut crumble, it was so good. The Roma Bar was very reasonably priced, had a relaxed atmosphere, and the staff were very friendly, it was... More

Had breakfast a couple of times during our stay in Darwin. The coffee was consistently good. Avacado smash was average but enjoyed the muesli with raspberries on my second visit. Freshly squeezed orange juice was also good. Coffee service was brilliant but the food service was quite slow and 1 of our party sat with their breakfast for at least... More

The Roma Bar has been around as long as I have lived in Darwin and that's decades. It has probably been around a lot longer. A cafe in the heart of the CBD which prides itself on good honest Territory tucker, generous serves dished out with a smile. A range of burgers are excellent value at $13 each, my deluxe... More

I ate here two mornings in a row on a weekend after a business trip to Darwin. On the first morning, I had the Indian breakfast (dahl, pickles and roti) with a Virgin Mary. The roti is the dry Indian style, not the buttery Malaysian style that I'm more used to, but still good. Day 2, I ordered the coconut... More
