Rosey’s has been on Unley Road for several years probably because it offers consistent service and quality food. Although you can get a table during the week, it always pays to book on the weekends. There is seating inside the little shop where there are hanging bottles and minimalist décor, and also in the brick paved courtyard. This is a pleasant area even on a cold day when the blinds are pulled down and the heaters on to give cozy feel.
The food is fairly standard but well cooked and presented. A personal favourite is the fritters with salmon, and the French toast is also delicious. Coffee is consistently good with no variation from visit to visit – another reason to go back as you know what you are going to get.
The service is always friendly and efficient and the staff remember you from one visit to another. There is plenty of parking either behind the shop or in Frederick Street – make sure you watch the speed limit – 40km/hour – it is easy to get caught as the hard to spot cameras are nearly always there.
The only downside is the insistence on no separate bills. This is really annoying especially at those times when they are not busy and there are only two of us who have to sort it out between them. To me this is a minus in terms of customer service – so be prepared for this and also the 10% surcharge on Sundays.
Summary: Good service and quality food. A little on the pricey side but worth it. Coffee good. Location easy to find with ample parking.
