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

when it was running the management were very helpful and the birthday dinner I had there was great. I've only been in the replacement restaurant recently and it still does terrible coffee.

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

We gave up using this once iconic bistro in Rozelle approx 12 months ago due to a mammoth drop in service and, with visitors over Christmas and New Year, decided to 'try again' to get out of the rain for a family brunch for 6 adults when the place was, at best, only 20% occupied. BIG MISTAKE............. poor service by... More

Ordered a freshly squeezed green apple juice with no ice ($8), proceeded to watch them make half a glass of juice and top it up with soda water. Then saw the owner drink from the soda bottle. Drink was brought to me and had red juice stuck to the inside of the glass. Told the waitress the glass was dirty... More

We had late brunch here, a toasted sandwich mine on rye another on sour dough. Both cheese and ham with tomato both good, hot a tiny amount of salad leaves would have made it better but it is table service and the waitress from Southern Ireland was very efficient and nice. I think it's worth a try we sat outside... More
