“Step back in time”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The decor might be themed old but the food is fresh. I'd visit this place a lot, it's just up the road from me, it's actually in a building called The Open Door Centre, it's ran by the local community church but its certainly no church canteen, this place is decked out in old themed signs, pictures, wallpaper etc It has around 9 tables and a waiter comes down to you. Most times I've been in its relatively busy, alot of people seem to love their Ulster Fry's, I like the daily specials, cottage pie, roast dinner, stew etc all very well made and no rubbish, which is strange because the price per meal isn't that much, the food quality is very high but I paid around a fiver for a large fry (2 soda bread, 2 potato bread, 1 pancake 2 sausages, 1 bacon, I fried egg, ½ tomato) ​& coffee!

Hi, yes The Cafe Rose is situated inside The Open Door Centre which is owned by Carrickfergus Community Church. We offer off street car parking, wheelchair access in, as well as inside facilities . Even though we are at the heart of a local community we feel responsible for our global community and so where possible we only use Fairtrade products. All our tea, coffee, sugar and hot chocolate are Fairtrade and we are moving towards replacing any other relevant products as they become available. Fairtrade is a recognised organisation and we are pleased to display their logo and support awareness raising events including the annual Fairtrade fortnight every February/March.

“Breakfast Special!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

It's my new local for all day breakfasts! It's only open until 2:30 but its all fresh made and has a 5star rating for hygiene, which is a lot more then many larger establishments in the town! Clean, friendly, old style decor but kept nice.
