Rozelle Espresso – coffee with a play area
With my big boy at daycare the little one and I set off to meet some friends for coffee. We couldn’t decide where as the weather was overcast and threatening rain. Since having moved to Sydney I’ve wanted to explore the Inner West and so we decided to try Rozelle and the much raved about Rozelle Espresso. Well well, Rozelle Espresso proved to be worth the raving!
Rozelle Espresso is great for little kids who are in the crawling or toddling stage and their parents / carers too! The former because there is a little play area to the side of the restaurant which is observable from most of the tables and the latter because the food is good and the coffee Campos.
Where is Rozelle Espresso
Situated at 654 Darling Street, Rozelle it’s on one of the main streets in the area and one of the routes through to Balmain.
Parking for Rozelle Espresso
There is parking on the road outside Rozelle Espresso but it’s a busy road. It may be too difficult to get the kids out the car without huge uneasiness.
There is metered parking down National Street, take coins if you want to pay as it is a dollar per hour more expensive if you use your credit card. There is also free 2 hour parking in the council car park in Prosper Lane but there are only 24 parkings so the chances of getting the parking there aren’t high.
Rozelle Espresso is great for a cool Winters day as we experienced. It is warm and cosy inside yet with the feel of space which is unusual. We didn’t take our prams with but there should be space for a pram to park alongside the table.
Rozelle Espresso Features
Rozelle caters to kids with a kiddies menu displayed on the board. They high chairs on offer and there is a little play area.
What I really liked is that the kids’ food arrived in seconds, before the adults food which is perfect when you’re dealing with hungry kids.
There is all day breakfast which is one of my Favourite things. Naturally I opted for the French Toast which was as delicious as it was pretty. My friend enjoyed the chicken avo wrap which also looked good. There weren’t many breakfast options for the little kids but there were plenty of choices for lunch.
Aside from menu offerings there are options on the big chalk boards on the wall. If nothing on the menu interests you – there are some treats available on display.
There are sit down options and take away options but the table service was good – attentive but not annoying. The waitresses seem to be okay with kids and accepted them in their wake as they moved around with the orders.
Rozelle Espresso Opening Hours
Rozelle Espresso is open 7 days a week from 7 am to 5pm.
The busiest hours are around lunch time and Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays seem to be the quietest days of the week.
