Rosebud cafe is consistently good. There are no surprises and that is comforting. They do have gluten free bread. Jackson is open for business on the weekends so are closed Monday's and Tuesday's. The sign in the window did not indicate this however. Stores also open later than other areas. Eleven o'clock is not unusual.

First time there. Friendly enough and pretty good omelets but not served very hot and way over priced. Very good home baked toast though. Waitress left us for dead- never checked up on us. Could not get a coffee refill on a $2.75 cup of coffee. Sat ignored waiting for our check so we could get on with our tourist... More

We didn't want the free breakfast at the hotel so my husband found this little jewel. Sometimes these cute little places are a pain. This one had good service, good food and great attitude . Would eat here again.

I was dying of thirst so my sis and I stopped in here just to grab an ice tea. The smell of the food was too enticing so we decided to grab a light lunch. We split one of the best BLTs I have ever had and a salad!! The tea was so good I ended up drinking 3 large... More

While walking in the historic area of Jackson, we stopped for lunch. I had a chowder special and my wife went a daily special sandwich. Both came with on-site baked bread and both were great.

My wife and I recently had lunch at Rosebud's Cafe in Jackson, CA and enjoyed the meal. We both had sandwiches -- I got the brisket with goat cheese. It was fresh and tasty. Service was a bit slow, however, it is because everything is done from scratch. Waitstaff were very friendly. This is a very good choice for lunch... More

Nestled in the middle of a well-preserved Main Street in the heart of a historic gold rush town, Rosebud's is a surprising gourmet stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If it was located in the trendy wine country nearby, you would likely have to make reservations months in advance to sample the delicious farm to table fare at this small... More

I don't review restaurants very often because I feel like eating out can be so subjective. Everyone is looking for something different. This place was just too great not to mention though, so here I am. Rosebud's is delicious! I had a group with a bacon obsesser, person who won't try anything new, spice hater and myself, a vegetarian and... More

What a great farm to table cafe that caters to all appetites. Fresh food, gluten free options and a great atmosphere and service. It was one of our very favorites on out trip and we will look forward to passing by again. Thank you!

The menu was just overpriced for what they were serving. I got an eggplant parm sandwich with the marinara on the side and eggplant fries.. Marinara looked and tasted like canned crushed tomatoes cooked not long enough. The eggplant in the sandwich was the same as the eggplant fries. Just not worth their high price.

Thank Fritique
