Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely - and great value. Chicken and brie open sandwich and the big brekkie were delicious and in generous sized servings. Great coffee and a nice range of teas. Friendly service - no wonder they are so popular!

Great little cafe that opens at 8am! Met a girlfriend there for a catchup over brekkie. Service was very friendly. I had the waffles - extremely tasty and it was a large serve! Also the smoothies are made from real fruit! When in the area...again I will go again!More

In the past I have experienced good service at Care Rosetta, sadly though today was very disappointing. No hello, or goodbye or a thank you. Staff were all gloomy and lacked zero hospitality skills and lack of awareness for their customers. The young girl of...around 12 who was working was keeping that cafe afloat today, she did look after us. When your spending a lot on two meals you expect better service. I wont be in a rush to return. No excuse either as it wasn't busy.More

Had heard good things about this café in the past and was excited to try. Unfortunately was disappointed. Ordered poached eggs and the eggs were completely dry- they were also served on what looked like budget sandwich bread. Coffee was okay.

We (two + toddler) arrived at 8:15am on Sat and took a table for 3 alongside the toys. Only one other table was occupied. They gave us menus then told (not asked) us to move “because we have a big group coming” to a table...for two. They moved tables to set up for a group of 8 right in a corner that was going to make it difficult for the server to reach 4 diners and left a sign saying booked from 9:30am. Having a toddler with us we didn’t linger and left at 9am. Toddler did not make a noise or a mess and yes, we put the toys away. And unless coffee and OJ are $6.50 each, they overcharged us. Food was very nicely presented but corn fritters were well overdone.More

The Manager / Owner was extremely rude to her staff over customers wanting to use wifi to open thier vaccine passports on entry. Unfortunately this is the new way of hospitality and no reason to take it out on your staff!

We visited Rosetta with a group of friends for our usual Tuesday lunch - our first time at Rosetta. While the rain bucketed down outside we enjoyed our meals and received very good, prompt and friendly service. The meals were all well presented and all...of our group left happy and well fed.More

Our first family of four get together since lockdown. We are so glad that we chose, and booked a table at this great cafe. They were well geared up for L2+ with spare disposable masks and sign in procedures at the door. The food was...fresh and fantastic. Two of us enjoyed the herb halloumi and avo salad. One corn fritters and a poached eggs on sourdough, and we were a happy family. Great service and good coffee. Perfect!More

The Rosetta never pretends to be what it’s not. It has a good sized blackboard menu of delicious food - freshly cooked and a great range of options in the cabinet. The coffee is excellent and we always love the charm and location of the...cafe building. We go there regularly because the food is always high quality and we really enjoy sitting in the relaxed cafe environment.More

We have been going to this café as a family for many years and have experienced various owners and menus! Our last couple of visits have been pretty good - really nice brunch menu, good cabinet selection and yummy strong coffee. The waffles are my...fave! It's a cute, quaint little place and they have just closed in their outdoor area so it's nice and toasty in winter. Service is pretty good - they could do better at acknowledging people coming in the door as it's busy and lots of people just stand around waiting to be greeted and seated.More

Drop in for a quick eggs bene and throughly enjoyed it with the homemade hash browns. It’s a funky local seaside cafe with attentive service. NB Ive see other comments about pricing but small cafes still have big overheads. Support local I say.
