Great food at affordable prices. Friendly staff. The icecream is to die for! Situated a little off but worth the drive.

Nice selection of breakfast and lunch items on the menu. Sunday mornings seem to be their busiest time, but we still received excellent food and service. Don't forget to buy me some fresh backed cookies and cupcakes for the road.

Rosie's food is always fresh, healthy and delicious. The servings are just the right size, and dinners include a fresh salad, vegetable or potato, and warm, freshly baked bread. And a scoop of wonderful home made ice cream! Service with a smile, friendly and efficient....More
