This place has been around for a long time....the quality is fantastic-space is small but worth the wait. Highly recommended- especially the pistachio muffins.

We ate there while in town for business. While we had eaten there a while back, and it was always good, I was really impressed with the menu; several Mexican dishes that were very good, and overall a nice selection. The staff was professional, and it's a nice atmosphere. We'll go back.

The food, the service, the atmosphere!! Everything is amazing, it is my go to lunch place. The decorations are amazing. There are cupcakes and muffins on the counter and they look amazing... and taste even better!! The servers are so kind and they understand what you are trying to say. The whole restaurant has a very trendy and friendly vibe.

I stopped for breakfast at Rosieone morning while I was in New Caanan. I was actually heading to another restaurant but decided to try Rosie. I found the food appertaining and well prepared as ordered. The only thing that would have made the meat better was if it was served a little faster. The wait staff was very helpful and... More

Very good for breakfast and lunch, Rosie is a popular place. It is a little loud, but lively. There are very good options for brunch, including a sandwich and soup, salads and a wide range of presentations of eggs. It is the kinds of place every town would like to have with basic, tasty food downtown.

Had a couple of breakfasts here, food is good and plentiful. Service could be improved and the room is quite noisy.

If you want the best muffins, worth the drive from anywhere. They are the best muffins, and we have sampled muffins across the country. We are very picky and the food and muffins and service is great at Rosie's. Even your dog is welcomed at the few outside tables. When we travel from NY to Boston, a stop at Rosie's... More
