We had a warm welcome from a nice girl this morning, which made us feel instantly comfortable. The food was great and well presented! It's a funky place, love the wall art. Tim was very friendly and takes pride in his cafe and was very accommodating.

I'm a nurse who occasionally works at Rosebud hospital, so I have been known to walk down to this cafe on my lunch break (it's only around 250metres away). The service is friendly enough. The coffee's not bad, but not great. I've bought a few muffins there over the years and they've usually been pretty good. They've changed their name... More

We went to the Tasting Station whenever in Rosebud and it was a gem. Now as The Holy Bean Cafe it's just ok. Food and coffee were ok, my fritatta was small and the price was above average for deli food. Nice location and sitting in the sun was lovely.

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.
