Horrible food, horrible service. On a recent visit (today), the new waitress complained to other diners about how much she hated working there, complete with four letter expletives. The bill came to just shy of $50 for two undercooked, cold pancakes, a very ordinary berry smoothie and a burnt, undrinkable coffee (which arrived AFTER the rest of the meal, despite... More

I loved Rosebud. Then there was a bad time in the middle when the food wasn't up to scratch.Then along came Rozelle Expresso. I like this cafe. It is my local and as an expresso drinker it is a sure fire way to see if they make a decent coffee. They do. A good selection of juices, cakes and treats.... More

Rozelle Espresso used to be Rosebud when it was run by much better management and staff. Hygiene of cutlery and toilets leaves you gagging, staff have an uncanny ability to look over the room without noticing anyone needing their attention, food overly oily and lacks care... This used to be my favourite place on a weekend- breakfast or lunch- and... More

Had driven past here 1000 times and finally decided to stop in for lunch. It's a good large setup that caters for everyone and especially to help with young kids. Almond ice latte pretty good and strong, as was fresh juice. Food was good. I liked my quinoa smoked salmon salad and partner said her big breakfast was ok.

Me and my wife went to Rosebud for lunch and didn't mind the food, but it was anything special. So if you are going out for quality food do not go here! But it you are going out with friends and are looking for a place with pretty good atmosphere and well priced food to hang out and talk, then... 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
