I went in for a early lunch today to grab a bite and try the new space out. Going early to try and avoid the lunch crush, and I was a little pressed for time, so wanted to be in and out.
Have to say the service was attentive, (possibly bordering on a little to much though).
My coffee was very poor, and my meal was no more than very ho-hum. I expected a lot more. The place looks great, very cool and the service was very sharp. Pitty the food and beverage fell flat on my visit.
Went to the new Rose Hip in Parnell today…coffee bloody awful…sorry guys…you were busy but I know a bad coffee when I taste one… it was really bitter…..we were going to stay for breakfast however didn’t want to take the risk.
Love the new fit out. Same great service.
Please don’t change your name to ” Rosie ” – it’s a bit blue rinse isn’t it ? Plus you can’t very well say ” I’ll meet you at Rosie ” … It’s Creepy.
Stick with the hip!
This is a fav spot for sunny weekends. The location is great, not far but peaceful. The prices are slightly high but we feel its worth it. They have their own farm and the food is always fresh. In terms of coffee they are one of the better cafes around serving Allpress.
Don’t try the scrambled eggs, they are made with olive oil, not just a dash then olive oil must be poured over the top.
A greasy, going brown eggs on toast, yuck they are still sitting on my stomach.
That is not how scrambled eggs should be cooked, they should be yellow and golden , not glistening in oil and verging on being brown in colour.
How come a manager, chef or wait-person hasn’t commented about these, I would state they would be the worst I have ever eaten.
Great service, shame about some of the food.
popped in there for lunch after visiting the rose garden.
Took my wife and daughter who are a bit picky. However 2 x egs benedict and 1 x big grill later we all left happy. Great service, good food and a nice experience
Special thanks to the lovely waiters – never had to ask for a thing – thanks guys
I LOVE Rosehip Cafe! the staff are very friendly, attentive and efficient. The food is amazing and fresh and they make a wicked old fashioned lemonade. To top it all off it’s in a lovely location – nice and close to the rose gardens making it perfect for a post meal walk off! My only wish is that the kitchen stayed open longer in the afternoon. Rosehip cafe has to be one of my favourites in Auckland and it won’t disapoint!
March 2012 This is such a popular cafe that at times it is impossible to find a place to sit! Once you are in the coffee is superb!
June 2013 We returned here today. The coffee was served hot (just as I like it), and with a smile. We arrived at just after 11am – in between the breakfast and lunch crowd, so finding a seat wasn’t a problem. Very pleasant.
This was a great experience for our Team of 24 who came for breakfast. staff were excellent and the food great. It couldn’t have been better. brilliant
An unsuspecting venue and location – a cafe at the side of Gladstone Road. However the food was delicious, interesting and even surprising! Service was good, friendly and efficient. No wonder it’s packed full at lunchtime mid-week!
Delicious…very good menu. Lovely food, excellent coffee. Service is great. Crowd is a mix, mostly older patrons. That’s okay! It’s Parnell after all.
We discovered this place a month ago after being regulars at Kohi Road Cafe and Takapuna beach cafe over the last 6 months and found out the same owners had another cafe in Parnell via their website. It really is such a beautiful location, residential and near the rose gardens. Most importantly, the coffee is amazing. We have soy lattes and soy cappucinos and they really are probably the best in the world…Food is great too, I prefer the Bruschetta with No29 at their Kohi branch though which they don’t offer here but I generally order their delicious banana or ginger loaf’s, food is always consistently A grade.
Superb service, good coffee, very clean & pleasant surroundings. Nice to be able to have a “dainty lunch” with watercress sandwiches and one of the best little carrot cakes around. When my partner thought he’d left his wallet behind they could not have been more helpful. We will return often!
I think this is overall one of the best cafes in Auckland. The location is beautiful and it always seems to be sunny and warm there somehow. The food is good, service is good and coffee is good. Can’t ask for much more than that…
Had a business lunch meeting here, and just loved my omelette with caramelised onions & feta. It was so beautiful it was hard to concentrate on the conversation at times!
This place is run by the people who own Richmond Rd Cafe, which is also fantastic.
Very classy cafe culture.
Nice to not be on the main road.
Easy street parking.
I always find the staff to be warm and helpful.
