Super delish - I found this place just by walking by on a Sunday morning. Had the eggs benedict on ciabatta, was really good! Great friendly staff, very welcoming. Coffee was very good. Will definitely return next time I’m in Rotes!

Love coming here every time for lunch or quick grab of cabinet food/coffee. Recently, we had the chicken burger and chicken salad and those were some of the juiciest chicken we’ve had. We are regulars and will keep coming back to great food, great staff...and welcoming/friendly service. We highly recommend this place to our friends and family.More

Me and my girlfriend went this cafe for lunch, the food come to us was really nice and fast, the service was really nice too, but one of the chef from the kitchen start shouted in the cafe , sound like to clean the tables,...we were have nice and quiet lunch until this chef turn up and shouted behind us really loud, we will never go this cafe again, I dont think angry chefs can make good food.More
