Rafter and Rose Ipswich – Review

Rafter and Rose is absolutely no secret – actually, it happens to be one of the most popular cafes and breakfast spots in Ipswich.

To anyone who’s been there, this is no surprise. The food is great, the atmosphere is a vibe and the staff are kinda the best.

Tucked in the heart of town, traditional Ipswich really shines through the plant-lined entrance and alley. The traditional, sunlit interior is completely welcoming and armed with the right book (or assignment), you could easily set up for the day.

Just like the decor, the food presentation is also super cute. Don’t you just love a lil swirl of avocado topped with a flower?

Life isn’t all about the aesthetic though. It is also about the food and oh boy, does Rafter and Rose really deliver!

Pictured above is the DC Special – a droolworthy compilation of sweet potato rosti, avocado, haloumi, bacon, spinach and poached egg.

Priced at $15, this bad boy cannot go wrong.

If you’re more of a scrambled egg person (or whatever – it’s a choose your own type of deal), the Eggs on Toast come in at just $11. Yes thank you!

I’ll be honest, I’m not really an egg person. Especially when I eat out, I almost always manage to find something wrong with them.

Despite this, I totally loved these! They were fresh, soft and just runny enough. Officially a happy gal.

See – cute plants!

Rafter and Rose is open Monday to Friday, 6:30am till 2pm, offering itself as a much calmer establishment than it is on a Saturday morning. They also offer takeaway coffee and snacks, just FYI.

If the weekend is your only option, despite the morning rush, it is still definitely worth it. There’s plenty of space to go around table wise and the staff go above and beyond to hustle out that coffee.

Plus, all those people are clearly there for a reason!

You can find Rafter and Rose on Facebook and Instagram, where they share snaps of their freshly made sweet and savoury treats.
