Miss old owner ... She may have had alot to say and opinions.... That's what made it a destination not just a restaurant.

Went on a road trip through the Upper Peninsula. We chose an overnight stay in Escanaba, and stumbled on the BEST breakfast diner around!! This is that old diner feel, where you can sit on a diner stool, and watch your food being cooked. Staff welcomed us so kindly, and shared the history of their establishment, when we had questions. The pancake was HUGE. The eggs cooked to perfection! The entire breakfast was delicious. We can’t wait to come back again, some day. Oh and I must say the coffee reminded me of HOME. ❤️

Rosy’s was my favorite dining experience on our trip to the U.P! Excellent food, service, and prices! It’s absolutely a must visit! We try to get to MI every year and this will be a guaranteed stop for us.

Excellent breakfast. I like simple. Eggs over medium, bacon and a pancake. You would be amazed at how hard that can be. Rosy's new owners made it a 10/10. The eggs really were medium. The bacon was not that thin stuff, but thick and crispy with a great taste. The pancake was huge and delicious. Couldn't eat it all. Wanted to though. The place was really clean too. The first restaurant I have gone to with no stickiness on the sryup bottle.

The place was packed early on the fourth of July morning, but I found a spot on the counter, and settled in among the locals and their conversations about how well the city crew cleaned up the fireworks from the night before, as well as hearing stories about the original Rosey and her brash personality (quite entertaining). It took a few minutes to place an order because it was so busy, (totally understandable) but the food arrived quickly after it was ordered, and it was extremely good, everything perfectly cooked.


Now that the foul-mouthed, obnoxious, and overly-opinionated Rosy Cox is gone, I may have to give the place another try. While her food was good, her rages and rants were simply over the top. Ruined what could have been a good time.

My wife and I had a great meal here. The food was great and filling. Owner and staff were friendly and fun to talk to. Found out that the Cafe was sold and the new owners weren't sure which direction they were going to go.

We were recently on vacation and Rosy's was suggested as a great destination place for breakfast.My wife, daughter and I are from Richmond, VA. We popped in, on our way to Mackinac Island and had a fantastic meal. The locals were pleasant, the staff was terrific. The price was right, for the portion size. We were stuffed. They talked us into a fresh hot cinnamon roll. It was delicious too!

The hoodies fit perfectly!

“We got nothing “ is how we were greeted as we walked in on Memorial Day Weekend. The place was mostly full, but we were not offered a seat. We are a nice multiracial family from Maine. Not overly sensitive about our family, but this just felt weird. The food may be fine but I would keep driving.

Food excellent and the staff, Rosie, goes the extra mile to treat her customers with care. I was impressed when she walked by my table and saw I had my to go box upside down with pancakes that I couldn't finish. She warned me of the upside down box and the perferrated holes at the top, where the syrup could drip out onto my clothes. Most people wouldn't even pay attention and let you end up wearing syrup.

Can't say enough good things about this place! We stopped in for a quick breakfast and Rosy's exceeded all expectations. This is a family owned dinner and the service was quick (in and out in less than an hour) and exceptional. BEST hash-browns and bacon I've ever had. Food was cooked to perfection, flavorful and fresh with big portions. HIGHLY recommend this place if you're in the area.
