Coffee is excellent, Food was also pretty good. However I would suggest not going on Sunday morning. The staff were working hard but this place was understaffed and new customers had to clear previous customers dirty plates and cups so to be able to use the tables. We waited 45mins for two omelettes, there was no water glasses available and... More

been coming here for over 5 years and i do like roma bar but the fact that they charge $2 extra for free range eggs when they should only be selling them in the first place. this sends the wrong message and only fuels the fire of how wrong cage eggs are. instead of profiting from the situation, get on...

Try the Indian style breakfast. Dahl is fabulous and combined with gorgeous condiments. Excellent coffee and try the house made lemonade. Just gorgeous.

I have never had a bad meal at Roma bar. The food is always delish and fresh. I feel the portion size is good and the price is fair considering Darwin prices :) the service can be slow when it's busy but the staff are always polite and pleasant. What pushes it from really good to excellent is their hollandaise... More

Had the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant in Roma bar. We arrived around 2:30 or slightly later and ordered food. Shortly after our food arrived staff began to clean up. They literally stacked tables and chairs around us as we tried to eat our meal. They actually locked us in and we had to exit through a... More

Nothing quite like a good fry up, even as a veggie and the Roma Bar vego breakfast is always a winner. But I go here to meet people. It is a hang out for progressives and lefties! Politicians, journalists, musos - they all come to the Roma bar when in town, so a good place for celeb spotting the morning... More

The coffee and food are all delicious with the menu including dishes with hints of travels to many other countries. Many locals would not go anywhere else for their morning coffee, breakfast and /or lunch.

I used to get my takeaway coffee here until the cup sizes seemed out of whack for the price, so went elsewhere where it was better value. However, the lunch selections are great and getting better. I am loving the more asian influenced item on the menu lately- but in a kind of modern way and sooooo tasty. My partner... More

Good location in the city, breakfast and coffee was good without being memorable, but priced accordingly, not overly expensive. Overall was solid without making a big impression.
