I've really enjoyed this place every time I've eaten here. Of course, it goes without saying that you must order the breakfast pizza. They use really fresh eggs. Also, don't miss out on a side order of potatoes. My boyfriend and I decided that these potatoes are so good, even if each bite took a year off of our lives, we'd finish the whole plate. Yeah, we're fatties.
One thing that many people who don't live nearby don't realize is that Rose's also has a coffee bar. Come in and order any espresso drink at the bar -- they are so good! The mochas are particularly wonderful They also have good pastries, including chocolate croissants, muffins, etc.
I've been meaning to come for dinner, which I hear is terrific.

My girlfriends and I have made a pact that from now on, this restaurant is our new "girl's night out restaurant". It's the type of place with waitstaff who are so very accommodating to let us squeeze in 2 more people after some friends joined in the last minute (after I called one on her cell about the menu items).

We were delighted to have such a great restaurant in our neighborhood too since the restaurants in this area are a bit lacking, to say the least.

I'm definitely recommending Rose's Cafe to all my friends.

Cow Hollow has some amazing restaurants but Rose's Cafe is top 5 for me. If you want an amazing breakfast, you have to try this restuarant! You must order a large latte and drop in a couple sugar cubes. The breakfast pizzas are

Funny to read reviews that say "you won't be disappointed". SO not true. A party with more people that came after us was seated before us, service was slow & a little inattentive, it took over 30 mins for the food to arrive, the food

Overall, it was a pleasant experience -- but I can't say it ranks high on repeat value b/c the food is overpriced. We went for dinner on a Friday night. To our surprise (and that of the hostess'), we were able to get seating without

Cons: Food for the Price, Overpriced

Pros: Pizza, Steiner St outdoor tables are cozy and quiet

Cons: long waits to sit down during brunch, noisy inside

Not a lot of selection, but their food is still great. We had the spinach/prosciutto dish and the new potato hash... they were both excellent. There was a bit of a wait, so just get there early.

I love this neighborhood spot, usually packed but not a long wait. Outside there are heating lamps and romantic, cozy lighting. Great spot for a date or catching up with a friend. Inside can be noisy however. And you can't come here

Another winner on Union Street. One of the best places to bring out of towners - the food is good, the menu changes regularly, the wine list is large enough to be interesting and on weekday afternoons, a glass of wine is half price. This

I ate here a few weeks ago and was pretty impressed. The salmon pizza was recommended and was great- very fresh, but the bread on which it was served was too tough to cut through. I liked the flavor and didn't shy away from sawing

I want to like this place because I live in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, it is extremely overpriced--not sure why a small neighboorhood restaurant thinks they can charge $23/plate. That being said, the 1/2 price wine happy hour from

This resturant serves amazing food and on top of that, the service is wonderful! The only bad thing is that sometimes there's so popular that it is hard to find a table! EEEEK, over 5 stars

Pros: Hash, Good breakfast crowd, colorful decor

Our family eats here about 5x per week. Great coffee and baked goods. However, the nuovo Italian pizzas and pastas are awesome and change virtually daily. The wine list is great with lots of wines by the glass. Chef Mark is great. Matt is an awesome manager. Entrees are about $16, appetizers are around $10.

I've had dinner at both Rose's Cafe and its big sister, Rose Pistola, and I have to say that Rose's Cafe wins by a landslide. It's intimate, and I much prefer the California-influenced cuisine. Plus it is a much better value.

Rose's offers a casual Italian take on breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. Homemade Italian breads are a success, especially the strawberry-black currant focaccia. The breakfast pizza is a favorite, a thin blistered-crust torte topped…
