Had the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant in Roma bar. We arrived around 2:30 or slightly later and ordered food. Shortly after our food arrived staff began to clean up. They literally stacked tables and chairs around us as we tried to eat our meal. They actually locked us in and we had to exit through a... More

Nothing quite like a good fry up, even as a veggie and the Roma Bar vego breakfast is always a winner. But I go here to meet people. It is a hang out for progressives and lefties! Politicians, journalists, musos - they all come to the Roma bar when in town, so a good place for celeb spotting the morning... More

The coffee and food are all delicious with the menu including dishes with hints of travels to many other countries. Many locals would not go anywhere else for their morning coffee, breakfast and /or lunch.

I used to get my takeaway coffee here until the cup sizes seemed out of whack for the price, so went elsewhere where it was better value. However, the lunch selections are great and getting better. I am loving the more asian influenced item on the menu lately- but in a kind of modern way and sooooo tasty. My partner... More

Good location in the city, breakfast and coffee was good without being memorable, but priced accordingly, not overly expensive. Overall was solid without making a big impression.

Came here for breakfast. Lovely coffee and amazing breakfast. Bit of a wait for food. But understandable on a busy Sunday lunch

Very reliable breakfast with a lovely fruit option. Poached eggs were down beautifully although the side of spinach was slightly underdone (hard to achieve with I know). Genuine fresh OJ and places to sit in and out depending on your humidity tolerance. Prompt service is very helpful.

Husband and I dropped in for a quick breakfast. Husband had a toasted bacon and egg sandwich, that's exactly what you get, no frills. I had a coffee, tasted alright, could be bigger, I like a large coffee.

We have been coming here for many years whenever in Darwin and is always our first choice for breakfast, always good food and coffee. Can be a little pricey but we always return and know what we are getting.
