Everything costs more on Rotto and Dome is no exception. It's sad that it closes quite early too but I guess that's an island staffing issue. The food is as good as any Dome Cafe.

Standard franchise set up, conveniently located near the jetty and visitor centre. Very slow service when we were there on a Sunday morning.

A lot of other people had the same idea and the queue to order food was quite long, but was dealt with quickly and it gave me time to decide what I wanted to order. I had a coffee and scrambled eggs with toast. Both were tasty and hot.... More

Went here for a coffee when I first arrived on the island and it was very busy! But coffee was tasty and staff were friendly. Then went for an afternoon snack of chips - small portion but was what I wanted. My husband had the eggs benedict and said it was the best hollandaise sauce he had ever had! I... More

Poor effort. Coffees were luke warm, barely warm enough to drink. I ordered eggs hollandaise on ham, with crispy bacon on the side. We eat at various Domes regularly so I knew to clarify that I wanted extra bacon NOT bacon as a replacement for the ham and the lady taking my order understood this. I also clearly asked for...

Had breakfast here one morning, but did fancy an evening coffee and desert - but Dome closes very early - before 4pm - i think they would be very busy if they stayed open for the early eveing trade

I had a chicken tandoori salad, but it was hard to find the chicken pieces, very few. Had a lemon lime bitters which... More

Pretty expensive but so is every outlet on the island. Very busy with a reasonable wait for food and beverages.
