Everything is relative, right? Among the choices, this place was comfortable, service good and friendly. Food was pretty good. Had onion rings and salmon crusted with pecans and green beans and brown rice. Satiating.

The worst breakfast ever. When we skied with locals later that day, they laughed their heads off that we had eaten in such a lousy tourists trap. Beware.

Food here was delicious and fresh. The wall decor is fun and whimsical. A bit on the pricier side for what you get, but that is to be expected of a tourist town. The staff is very warm and inviting. I found them to be very accommodating to my husband that requires the use of a service dog.

Rosie's is a great place for Breakfast or Lunch. Very responsive staff and good food too. We've been here a few times in the past two months and always enjoyed it.

We had brunch at Rosie's, and the food was fantastic. Everything our party ordered was fresh and great. I ordered a crab cake topped with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce, with hash browns on the side. I would never have thought of that combination, but it was delicious. The ambience is great, too. The restaurant is decorated with antique... More

If you ever get to Tahoe City, (and you should) you'll have the opportunity to eat at Rosie's,(and you must). The food is fantastic, the service is just as good, and the ambiance is cute as a button. A basket of buttons actually. No matter where you look inside Rosie's cafe, you'll see something that makes you smile. The same... More

Rosie's Cafe is a great place for breakfast. It is well worth the hour drive for us and we often go up for the delicious food and great service. It does get busy during the ski season and summer, so we usually confine our visits to the spring and fall.

very friendly and attentive staff, and the food was amazing! There were 3 adults in our party, and even though it was busy, we did not feel rushed.

Stopped here to get takeout spaghetti platter so I can eat in my hotel room while on a trip out west. Sat at the bar and had a drink while my food was being prepared. The bartender was a bit rude and not very attentive. When I returned to my hotel room to eat, I got halfway through the meal... More
