Rosey's - time for another brunch review

My friends and I are always on the look out for brunch spots, attempting to try a different place each time we go out (unless we are really craving our faves).  After asking around, Rosey's was recommended - so we gave it a go.

Quirky piece of roof art
Rosey's is located on Unley Road.  Walking into the cafe you are welcomed with a fun and quirky design which I love. Cut to the chase, lets discuss the food!

Big breakfast - (approx $18)
The breakfast menu is limited, but feeling hungry that morning, I order the big breakfast (bacon, avocado, rye, rocket, tomato, mushrooms and poached eggs).  The bacon was not well cooked and alot of the rind was left on, it also had a different taste to it.  My friend had the same dish so asked her about the taste and she concurred that it was a little 'different'.

The rye was thick and dense and the avocado was creamy.  All other elements of the dish were average and did not provide me with any 'wow'.  Poached eggs were cooked well with a nice runny yolk.  Overall, I was a little disappointed with this dish.

Strawberry tart
The saviour of the day was the strawberry tart.  As I entered Roseys, these small, delicate tarts were staring my friend and I in the face - we both looked at each other and ordered them!  The pastry was short and sweet, soft when cut through and crumbled in my mouth.  The strawberries were sliced thin and were nice and sweet.  The cream was also very light and flavoursome, not what I was expecting.  This was definitely the highlight of my brunch experience.

Ambiance: 3.5/5 - Great atmosphere.  Lots of casual chatter and a funky decor. 
Service:  3.5/5 - Good, prompt service.  They made a mistake with the reservation but rectified the error quickly and without fuss
Food: 5/10 -  For me, the food was average.   The strawberry tart and decent coffee were the saving graces.

Mirko gives Rosey's 12/20.  If you are in the area, there are other places that are worth trying. 


  1. Lol, the "quirky roof art" is actually the bar.
