Rosie's Bistro & Patisserie Review
Here I am reviewing a little bistro/patisserie located in the Gosforth area of Newcastle. Rosie's cafe is located inside the Gosforth Centre NE3 1JZ, just past Sainsbury's. I went with my Mother on a Saturday. The place was busy, all the tables were full, with a bridal shower in full swing.
The cafe has a lot of food and drinks to offer. From little cakes, to soup & sandwiches and afternoon tea. Great! I love it when a cafe has a big choice in food!
My Mother and I opted for the afternoon tea for 2, which costs £9.50 per person. Excellent value!
Afternoon tea includes a round of sandwiches per person. We were allowed to pick from the top 4 on the menu. Our choices were ham & chutney and Beef with horseradish.
You get three sandwich fingers each. They were nice. Served on soft bread. The horseradish was really tasty, I think it's homemade? It didn't taste like the generic stuff you buy out of a bottle anyways.
The second tea included fruit scones with clotted cream and jam. Beautiful! The scones were so soft, and they were pretty big. To be honest, by the end of this round, I was starting to feel a bit sick from the sweetness of the clotted cream and the sugar in my tea! But I powered on!
The top tear were the desserts! In the jar was some sort of trifle which was lovely. It wasn't too sweet either. There were shortbread pieces, banoffee macarons, mini pistachio meringues, and chocolate brownies. I couldn't finish the brownie, so my Mother had to eat it. Oops! It was all nice, my favourite was the macarons. I love them!
We also had an option of different teas. We chose the normal breakfast tea. You could also get a soft drink instead if you preferred.
It costed £19 in total which I think is a bargain! A lot of places charge around £20pp for exactly the same thing.
The atmosphere was lovely, the service was great, and the food was excellent. My Mother also commented on the cleanliness of the kitchen! Bravo! Therefore this place gets a 5/5!
