First place to try after arriving on the island. The waiter was awesome and the place had a cozy atmosphere. Shrimp and scallops very good. We saved room for ice cream and my husband raved about the mini coconut cake! Definitely would visit here again!

We stopped in for lunch on Friday and what an awesome experience! Karen, our waitress was friendly, courteous, and just an all around joy. Our food was out of this world. I highly recommend this Cafe.

After visiting the farmers' market on Sunday morning, my husband and I ride our bikes to Rosie's. I always get the Mexican scramble and he gets the blueberry pancakes. We love it.

Had an early lunch outside in the November sunshine. Our waitress Karen was great & had good sense of humour. My partners chicken quesadilla was very good as was my steak N cheese baquette but the fries tasty as if they had been reheated by having a quick dunk back in the frier, not good.

Food was a little greasy, even a turkey sandwich was just a little that way and wouldn't stay together.

We rode our bikes to this restaurant (we stay near the lighthouse) and ate with my cousins. What a wonderful lunch menu, including the grouper and the cheesesteak. Service was fast and friendly. We will be back again.

LOVED THIS PLACE! We were hungry and went here because it was the first place we saw. The inside was very clean and comfortable (there's also nice outdoor seating). Service was great. We ordered a veggie sandwich on a croissant and it was really good. It came with some piping hot, delicious fries. The croissant was wonderfully flaky and fresh.... More

Nice lunch spot after the drive up from Naples for the weekend. The crabcake was excellent, and the salad a nice counterpoint. Cheerful server

It's a bit small and looks a little old fashioned. My pattymelt was a 👌 perfect medium. The wife attacked a bowl 🍚 of ultimate nachos. Both were very filling and good. It has that hometown local cafe look to really enjoy. Give them a taste today

Our first visit here. It was ok. We had a pound of steamed shrimp. While they were good and at a great price, they hadn't been cleaned. A bit unpleasant to see while you are eating. An order of fried grouper and a couple of beers rounded out our meal. Nothing bad, but nothing to get me back in the... More
