On top you sit iin a really nice rose garden. 4 points! Critics: 43 R for yhe cheesecake with cream is significantly above all other bakeries in PE. -1... More

You can find the rose garden next to the rose nursery in a lovely patio. The breakfast was outstanding, especially the big banting omelette. The barista made lovely fresh brewed coffee. The service was excellent too and we were helped in a courteous and professional manner. I'd love to get back there one day.

The Rose Garden is super for lunches, especially if you have young children or grandchildren as you can sit and watch them while they play safely.

Lovely environment, bit noisy inside but perfect neat clean well maintained premises. We had Cafe Latte, decaf cappuccino and Mango fruit shake. Treat to ourselves was delicious Apple Pie, one with cream and the other with ice cream and a chocolate brownie which was all absolutely yummy... the nursery is an absolute delight to walk through and see such beautiful...

This place appears to be always busy no matter what time of day you go. I always go back for their delicious chicken salad (which is coated in shaved almonds, simply yum!) however the price is quite steep at R75. I am a lover of iced coffee, and do think they make one of the worst iced coffee's in Port... More

We have done a previous review about The Rose Garden Coffee Shop. This beautiful establishment remains a firm Port Elizabeth favourite. Sweeping veranda overlooking the most beautiful garden, top notch waitering staff and small menu but DELICIOUS food. My dear friend Qwen came all the way from Bedford to join me for lunch and she could not stop thanking me... More

I love visiting the nursery so we double up and have brunch as well. Great breakfasts, super cappuccinos. We often take the scones home for lunchboxes.

One of my favourite spots to take the kids for brekky, great environment with excellent and friendly service. The coffee is always top notch and the kids can play in a safe lawned play area with swings and a jungle gym that is viewable from most tables. A seperate kids menu keeps the little ones happy.

The garden is beautiful and the general setting is lovely. Inside is a bit too clinical and has a cold atmosphere. Two very sad looking Persian rugs that are almost threadbare are on floor( should be removed). Service was fine, not what you would expect from a tea garden. I had a chicken salad with almonds which was very informally... More
