Rosebery has transformed in recent years into a vibrant, inner-city suburb with huge appeal.
Part of its ever-growing attraction is its metamorphosis into a true foodie destination. Here are just a few of our favourite culinary finds in an area bursting with flavour.
This former soup factory is now Rosebery’s one-stop-shop for all the gourmet goodies your food-loving heart could desire. Here, you’ll find natural wine, craft beer and boutique gins; an old-school traditional butcher; a wholefoods organic grocer; and even a cooking school. Not to mention, its many great cafes, restaurants and bars.
If boutique spirits are your thing, this operating distillery and bar is a bucket list destination. Sample Archie Rose’s artisanal range of gin, vodka, rye whiskey, and single malts whiskeys, or enjoy great local beers over snack plates and sharing boards.
First Bronte, then Byron Bay, now Rosebery! The famous beachside café has transported its locally sourced, ethically-driven restaurant concept to the heart of the city. The Rosebery venue combines the Ducks laid-back charm and fresh, seasonal menu with an industrial warehouse vibe.
This light, bright, all-white café does a fine line in healthy, flavourful salads, buddha bowls and organic herbal teas. In case that’s all sounding just a little too wholesome for you, its liquor licence means that creative cocktails and moreish wines are also on offer.
Black Star Pastry’s Strawberry Watermelon Cake has been called the most Instagrammed cake in the world. Here, you can sample it in all its delectable glory – it really is as good as they say – along with all of Black Star’s other delicious cakes, pastries and pies.
Zeus Street Greek
This family-owned and operated chain brings its customers all of those much-loved Greek classics, from spanakopita and souvlaki to baklava and loukoumades. It’s a great spot for family or group dining and has a very kid-friendly mini menu.
Located in The Cannery, Da Mario is hugely popular for its authentic wood-fired pizzas and classic Italian fare dished up in a funky, industrial space.
If you love French fare and beer, you’ll be in heaven here. Snack on cheese and charcuterie boards while sampling tap beers brewed on site. Or, head upstairs for a more substantial meal in the bistro that’s guaranteed to satisfy any Francophile cravings.
Tuck into sparkling fresh sashimi and sushi, as well as other Japanese classics, including wagyu beef or seafood hotpots, ramen noodle soups and gyoza at this authentic Japanese eatery.
The address of the Rosebery branch of this amazing gelato chain is one to remember. At 58 Mentmore Avenue, this is no ordinary gelato, and happens to be Gelato Messina’s HQ as well as the factory and a great place to spot for a cool treat.
