Excellent in all areas. Great food, fast and friendly service. Huge pancake! My omelet was made to order with many choices for additions. My son worked in Healy and went to Rosie's frequently. We would recommend this cafe.

We were just driving around looking for a place for lunch. There were a number of cars in the parking lot so we decided to stop here. We were definitely glad we did. We all enjoyed our lunches. The staff was friendly and attentive.

Thank you for the kindness! We ate breakfast here three days in a row while we were in town visiting Denali nat’l park. They were always kind and attentive. That means a lot when you are a visitor :).

We ate breakfast here last week and enjoyed it. The portions were HUGE (especially the pancakes that fill an entire dinner plate). The cinnamon roll was a little too sweet for me, but the rest of our family enjoyed all of their breakfast choices. The...service was friendly and the place was very busy while we were there. It was also conveniently located near our Healy VRBO.More

Not sure how someone could give this place a bad rating. Might not look like much on the outside but the service and food are mighty fine! There was 1 server and she wasn't in her 20's she was movin'! Our food came out quickly...and was hot. My omlette and hash browns were awesome and my husband had some kind of breakfast burito that was very good. We've met several other travelers on excursions and they're heading towards Denali area -we tell them to go to Rose's for breakfast!More

Forget about ambiance. Greatest breakfast. World's best hash browns. No joke. Great homemade sourdough bread/toast. Great prices! The best. Period.

Rose's was such a charming family restaurant. Went there for breakfast, and it was tremendous! Omelet was made from scratch, and gigantic pancake that literally covered the plate. It was so good, we didn't even think about going anywhere else the next morning. Seriously, one...of the best breakfasts ever!More

We had an excellent, large breakfast here - with homemade sourdough toast. The service was perfect - provided by the young nephews of the manager (owner?). John Wayne pictures and items are among the mainly patriotic decorations. The Cowboy Commandments were fun to read. It...is very popular with locals but also quite comfortable for tourists. It isn't cheap but is not crazy expensive - totally in line with other breakfast/lunch places around Alaska. It's a can't miss for great diner food and service. Unfortunately, the second day we were there, they were not open (odd for a Wednesday).More
