Auckland cafe Rosie, located by the Parnell Rose Gardens, is lauded as the Prime Minister’s go-to café - and for good reason. It comes from the same people who brought you Takapuna Beach Café, Ortolana and St. Helier’s Bistro. Rosie’s menu is unusual in the best way possible and offers innovative and seasonal plates that stray away from traditional breakfast and lunch fare; think kefir fermented oat porridge with tamarillo and chia seed crisp, or ox tongue, bone marrow and egg dust.
The petite restaurant is burgeoning with Parnell locals at any hour of the day, coming to enjoy the delicate and balanced flavours of the bistro dishes and the sophisticated atmosphere that perfectly complements the food served.
