“Same old same old in a fancier setting”
Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

When you walk into this cafe the interior seems quite dark and is pretty dramatic-looking. There are lots of ladies who lunch, of the better-off kind who can pay Rocca's prices. Staff seem friendly enough although they were slow to clean the table we'd chosen.We didn't have a meal, just coffee and something to go with coffee!! The coffee was good and the choice of enormously portioned traybakes, scones and cakes was impressive. However, we felt the scones had been overworked so were chewy. The caramel on their caramel triangles (I think that's what they were called) my daughter said was incredibly good , just a pity it wouldn't stick to the base.

I am going to give this place another chance . Anyone for coffee??

“Great atmosphere, good food.”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

I really enjoy this restaurant , the staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. The food is excellent,as well as a range of hot and cold dishes there is also freshly baked scones and cakes. It's also handy to the town centre and car parking.

“Great food, well worth the visit”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Rocca is situated at the bottom of the town, close to shops & car parks so it's convenient place to pop in for a break from shopping. It's one of the more high end cafes in coleraine. It's well run, good food, friendly staff & the cafe itself is beautifully decorated. Limited menu but what's on it is really nice. Didn't find they had much of a choice for kids but they were happy to create a dish for my son. Eat here regularly & highly recommend you try it out
