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.

I'm traveling through Darwin and was having trouble finding decent wifi. The guidebook recommended this cafe and I'm glad I gave it a try. The eggs beni is really good, and the cappuccinos are yummy. The wifi is super fast so I got a lot of work done. Finally a place with good free wifi!

I travel to Darwin a lot for work and eat out for breakfast regularly. Roma bar is my favourite place for breakfast in Darwin. Excellent coffee and fantastic food. Highly recommend the vego breakfast and eggs Royale. They even make a fantastic banana lassi (type of smoothie)

To have something different for breakfast, go to this place. I had Indian breakfast and loved it. The portion was almost too big for me so I shared with my partner. Staff is nice and friendly, service is prompt, coffee is OK.
