We had a breakfast brunch at Rosetta - the food was quite slow, it was quite busy so that is understandable, but still seemed like quite a wait. Portion sizes good and generally looked and tasted ok. Staff friendly and helpful, providing good service. Prices...certainly on the high side and disappointingly discover we were whacked with an additional 15% because they claimed it was a public holiday (it wasn't - the public holiday is the Monday following not on the weekend), additional the surcharge information wasn't clearly displayed or communicated.More

Dug into it too quick for a photo! Damn those Chicken Waffles were an absolute winner and the 1/2 Vege Breakfast was perfectly balanced with deliciousness. 1/2 size meals reasonably priced at $14.50 and still a decent size for a brunch meal. Feeling full and...satisfied - Thanks team you were great too!More

Fortunately we were not in a rush the morning we visited this cafe to have breakfast. It took a wee while to get a table when we arrived. No other customers queuing- the staff just didnt notice us for quite a while. But once they...did, we were treated politely and our orders taken . The breakfast menu is interesting and varied which is great. And then we waited. And waited. About half an hour later we got the coffee we ordered. After over an hour we got our breakfasts. All delicious and nicely presented. But we didn't expect to spend well over two hours for breakfast. Not such a problem as the friends we were dining with are great company and other customers didnt seem to mind waiting for their food.More

We arrived just before 8 and were welcomed in with warmth and a smile. The breakfast was fresh and beautifully presented. Loved it.

I have been using Cafe Rosetta as business catch-up for about 2 years. We love it! The food is great and so is the service

This has become our local favourite. Small child doesn't even check the menu anymore, fruit waffles are such a hit he has no interest in trying anything else. Fabulous coffee, beautiful food, friendly staff. What more could you ask for?

So nice to have our local open again, friendly service, delicious lunch and good coffee. Great weather so we’re able to sit out on the deck.

I really enjoyed coming to this café. Service was nice and friendly and attentive. Coffee was excellent and the food was good quality. You can pick from cabinet or menu. One thing that really stuck out for me is that you can order half sizes...from the menu, which is fantastic if your not very hungry. Decor and atmosphere good. Pop into Rosetta if you enjoy friendly neighbourhood service and food.More

Cafe Rosetta is just round the corner from me. It's often busy. I prefer quieter, but I have the luxury of driving by and picking my moment. The service is friendly, the menu is varied and tasty, and they offer half portions. This is a...great idea that I wish more cafes would offer. It makes for a lighter lunch if you fancy and less waste and cost as a result. Make the time and enjoy. It's worth it. I love the corn fritters.More

Went here for morning tea. Delicious food and great service. Lots of locals coming here which is always a good sign. Kids loved their hot chocolate too. Really a hidden gem!
