“Delicious food, bustling cafe.”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The meals are fabulous - but pick your times carefully on the weekend - best is between the breakfast and lunch rush, or for afternoon tea.

Love the pies, I've always had pleasant fast service and the food is delicious!

“Roses - A Cut Above the Rest”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Roses is a cut above the rest with attentive and polite service. There is a great range of healthy options and the quality is always good. My only complaint is the small tables - if you have more than 2 in your group it is rather cramped and uncomfortable. Otherwise this cafe is hands down the best in Goulburn.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a great mid week lunch here with my sister. The cafe is bright and airy with a pleasant outlook on the big park in the centre of town (Belmore?). There is outdoor seating available. Service style is order at the counter and then food and drinks are subsequently delivered to your table.
The display cabinet is full of a large range of home style savoury and sweet treats, ranging from quiches and fritattas to meatballs and wraps. I enjoyed a moroccan lamb pie served with an enormous garden salad of greens, tomato, carrot, cucumber and even fresh beetroot ($13.90). The pie was delicious. My sister was equally pleased with her similarly priced selection of a pastry parcel with a filling that included ricotta, mushroom, spinach served with salad for the same price.
Service was friendly and efficient even though it was relatively busy.
My only complaint would be that the pie pastry should have been crisped a little under a grill or in a hot oven on reheating - the additional texture would have enhanced the superb flavour of the pie.
I would certainly return

“What a selection”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Was brought here by a local business associate for lunch. I was impressed right from the start by the scrumptous-looking display of goodies up at the counter. Such a variety - and everything looking delicious. Just wonderful! The colorful display was so well done and visually appealing that I really liked the place before taking a single bite of anything. I don't remember exactly what I ordered (although I probably have a picture of it), but I do know I enjoyed it. Hoped I would get to come back again before leaving town, but it was not to be...

“Wonderful - just wonderful”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Came here based on the reviews - and we enjoyed it so much we came back. A busy spot, but we were seated quickly and the service was great. The food is fresh and appetising and the coffee was fabulous. Lots of great choices to suit different palates - can't wait to return.
