My husband and I were looking for somewhere to have lunch. We stumbled across this place and decide to give it a go. We ordered a curry of the day (butter chicken) and a burger of the day (chicken soaked in buttermilk with a pickled slaw). We got the butter chicken and it was mildly warm but had an ok... More

Not too bad. A bit quirky with the way they serve milkshakes. A little expensive for the size/portion of milkshake. Food wasn't too bad but I have had better.

Found this by mistake looking for lunch one day with family. They used all local produce and meals were great and tasty. Thought we would keep this in mind but noticed on leaving was for sale. It is no longer there unfortunately now just another coffee cafe.

Not positioned in the main Rosebud shop and café section, therefore it is quieter and a place the locals like to hang out in. Lovely coffee, snacks and brunch menu. It is relaxing, friendly and accessible.

Friendly service. Food okay. Good menu. But too expensive. I visited a very nice seafood restaurant during the week that wasn't as expensive. One poached egg one slice of toast some mushies bacon avocado $24.00.

It has an old country retro feel about the place. Its busy and popular with locals like myself and tourists. The food is very good though and reasonably priced. Coffee is quite good as well. Parking can be tricky due to volume however plenty on the other side where the foreshore is.

Delicious food, was a little uneasy about having my food served on what seemed to be an unclean chopping board, but food was still delicious. Service was a little slow and coffee was pretty average.
