Rose Cottage is a quaint cafe with friendly owners and staff who put love and care into their food and service. Such a lovely, quaint little getaway. Highly recommend the scones with house made jam! Best on the Hill!

Been going here every time I go near Monbulk. The food is great and the atmosphere even better. Excellent prices and you can BYO any alcohol and there is no corkage charge. The sweets and scones are to die for. I rarely get to sweets...More

Lovely, homely setting with open fire. Ample food on plate at right temperature. Meat and vegetable were fresh and not over cooked. Plum Pudding was delicious. Very reasonably priced. Can take own alcohol. Cater's well for approx. 60 people. Limited space for parking.

We had a birthday dinner at Rose Cotttage and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's like going home to grandmas for dinner, a cosy warm atmosphere with very friendly service.

Another visit for lunch and the food was just delicious and well cooked. Cannot fault this establishment. Food is just delicious and staff so polite and friendly. They were busy being Easter Sunday, but nothing was too much trouble. I will be back

We love Rose Cottage. We enjoy the food and never disappointed. THe chicken with salsa and hollandaise is awesome but the family love the steak as well. We never leave feeling hungry.
