Rhubarb has been consistently giving the people of Roslyn good coffee and great breakfast for the last ten years. It's a bright and sunny spot to eat an eggs benedict and read the newspaper, or squeeze your pram in for a date with other parents. Bring your best friend, your grandma or friends in need of a cosy Sunday morning breakfast after a wild night on the town. Reliable and relaxed, expect a well-stocked cabinet and a full menu. Ozone coffee is on offer and most of the food is proudly made fresh on the premises. Rhubarb is well known for its delicious cheese muffins and rhubarb friánds. They are serious about their baking.

An active part of the Roslyn community, the café has bunting of flags that regularly change with the moment, whether it’s the Cricket World Cup or the All Blacks are in town. But Rhubarb is adamant that ANZAC Day is the only time you'll see the New Zealand and Australian flags flown side by side!
