Hands down, this place has the very best breakfast on the island. Don't waste your time waiting at the other 'popular' breakfast spots. Rosie's has the most delicious biscuits and gravy, their banana pecan pancakes are to die for, and if you like eggs Benedict,...More

Great food with excellent service. One note though, they only offer wine and beer. Other than that, a pleasant surprise.

We were all set to end our vacation with breakfast at Over Easy, but a clueless party of 20 ruined that. While trying to figure out what to do next, another party that was not going to wait mentioned Rosie's Cafe & Grill. Two blocks...More

Rosie's is a locals favorite. Consistent food, great service and lots of menu choices. We love the casual fare with the best burgers on the island. Fajitas are also a sizzling favorite. Wide selection of beers and a nice wine list with selections from Chile...More
