Classic Rozelle cafe experience, terrible service, waitress with a bad attitude. Half empty restaurant but got the hump when we didn't want lunch, only coffee. Rozelle has many cafes but so many have dreadful service. Sadly, this is one of them.

The food, coffee & juice is always good whenever we have breakfast or lunch here. Pictured is the Mediterranean Eggs. The Baja's; Bacon & Eggs and omelettes are other favourites of ours. The cafe has eating on the street, in the courtyard or indoors. Rebranded recently as Osteria but with the same team who ran Next on Darling.

Breakfast here is a treat. This is a proper family run restaurant with a very welcoming vibe. Don't know why the name has changed but mercifully the personnel and the menu haven't.

Next isn't just a good coffee shop, it t also transforms into a buzzy Italian restaurant one night a week, and this is something you shouldn't miss. Kate and her talented kitchen team really understand genuine Italian food with an Australian twist. Be warned - portions are generous and it is hard not to over-order, because the specials board is... More

Usually eat at Next for breakfast and lunch - went with a group of friends for dinner recently. Food good, service is great. I had lasagne - was not as rich as I would have liked - but really enjoyed prawn entree and lemon cake desert. If you go for breakfasts totally recommend the baked eggs.

I recently had breakfast here with a large group. The service was efficient and friendly. I chose the vegetarian breakfast which had a very generous serving of grilled haloumi and tomatoes, wilted spinach and fried mushrooms with a lovely piece of sourdough toast. It was really delicious. The coffee was excellent as well. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

This cafe is always clean. The staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is seriously yum and they now offer a Friday rustic Italian option which very very good. But what really makes this place stand out is their Genovese coffee, an absolute stand out.
