What Is Rosetta’s About?

Inspired by the legacy of the ancient Rosetta Stone, the décor within the bistro pays tribute to this famous artefact and inspires guests with simple yet quality cooking and ingredients, generous helpings, impeccable service, and unique food and beverage offerings that will tantalise any palate.

Rosetta’s Has Three Different Areas

Area #1: The Outside Area

The outside area is a relaxed bistro space, complemented by a deli-style display featuring a wide selection of freshly made Artisanal breads, paninis and cakes, along with an ice cream station, milkshake station, and a waffle and pancake area if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth.

For quick bites or snacks-on-the-go, passersby have an opportunity to savour delicious ready-to-eat items. Upon walking into Rosetta’s, early risers and late diners are met by a 24-hour bistro that serves an à la carte, quick service eating menu with a selection of down-to-earth comfort foods. Signature items include Philly Beefy Cheese, Peri-Peri Chicken Livers, Wood-Fired Pizzas and Chicken Tikka Mayonnaise Sandwiches.


And, for those who need a coffee fix, the bistro has introduced a brand new coffee concept, BLACKSMITH Coffee. BLACKSMITH Coffee believes in transforming the youth’s potential into opportunities. It crafts beautiful coffee blends from certified Fairtrade farms in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Uganda, and in doing so promotes social change, job creation, and skills development.

Area #2: The Central Space

The central space can be opened in four directions, and offers the flexibility to expand the outside area into a larger seating space, or can be opened up completely into the main restaurant space. Alternatively, the space can be closed off for private functions and conference groups.

Area #3: The Main Area and Kitchen Concept

This area encapsulates the buffet, the banquette seating, and the freestanding table seating. The presentation of the buffet in the kitchen area serves a variety of cuisines from around the world and gives diners the opportunity to enjoy excellent food at reasonable prices.


The kitchen chefs prepare the majority of the dishes right in front of guests while working to present seven distinct culinary speciality sections in the restaurant. These sections include:

  1. A Harvest Table with a selection of salads, mezze’s, cold starters, sushi, soups and an Artisanal bread station.
  2. For meat lovers, the Rotisserie, Roasts and Grill section features mouthwatering ribs, boerewors, chicken wings, whole chicken and beef topside with sauces and accompaniments.
  3. The Comfort dish section will see diners tuck into venison, tripe, traditional stews and casseroles, creamed spinach and other hot vegetables.
  4. The Mediterranean Station features a bevvy of grilled prawns, deep fried calamari, island style seafood, a pasta station and pizza expertly prepared in a wood-fired oven.
  5. For something a little spicier, the Pan-Asian station showcases mouthwatering Thai curries, North Indian curries, samosas, Indian pickles, a Chinese Wok station, sweet and sour pork, Beef Chow Mein, and Chinese spring rolls.
  6. Dining at Rosetta’s is truly a family affair with a Kiddies Station that includes a mini selection of hot dogs, beef burgers, pizza, chicken burgers, cheese grillers, and macaroni and cheese.
  7. To round off the dining experience, a generous sweet selection at the Dessert Station will see diners satisfying their sweet tooth with cheesecake, bread and butter pudding, chocolate Swiss roll, freshly baked cakes, soft serve ice creams, pancakes and waffles.

Whether it’s a quick breakfast, business lunch, or family feast, Rosetta’s Bistro, Restaurant & Kitchen offers an impressive, modern dining experience that won’t break the bank.

For all the coffee addicts and tea lovers in Joburg, I went out and about in the city and tested some great cuppa Joes to bring you this list of Top 10 Coffee Spots in Joburg. From great lattés and aromatic teas to freshly brewed coffees, these spots are definitely worth a visit!


Cramers Coffee

If you want some good quality coffee on the go, or to sit back and catch up on the latest gossip with your bestie, then head down to Cramers coffee in Marshalltown. This little spot is definitely worth a stop if you are in the middle of the CBD. They have great snacks to nibble on and I just loved their Gingerbread Latté.

Bean There Coffee Company

With fair-trade coffee that is rich in flavour and a great space for you to sit out in the sun, Bean There at 44 Stanley is the perfect spot to sit back and chill. They roast their own coffee and you are sure to be welcomed with freshly brewed aromas of coffee from Ethiopia, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Burundi. I will definitely be back!

With everything from espressos, frappés, and chilled cappuccinos to flavoured and gourmet lattés, Lattélicious in Nelson Mandela Square definitely has a great selection of coffee beverages to choose from. The medium roast Lattélicious Brazilian is perfect if you are looking for something different with a bit of a sweet flavour and the Choc Mint Cookie Latté is divine!

Walnut Grove

This has always been one of my favourite spots in Sandton City when I need a break from shopping. Walnut Grove near the Food Court has a nice selection of Artisanal coffees for you to choose from to get your caffeine fix. I absolutely love the moreish Sinful Cappuccino drizzled with condensed milk. Definitely one for those who have a sweet tooth!

Motherland Coffee Company

Motherland Coffee Company is the perfect place for all coffee addicts! At Motherland, you can get your favourite coffee fix in either small, tall or the Mother Cuppa sizes, and there is a good selection of coffees (hot or iced), hot chocolates, teas and smoothies to choose from. Be sure to try the Dictator – condensed milk, double espresso, whipped cream all topped with chocolate shavings ... too yummy! Tip: Try the cheesecake!

Doubleshot Coffee and Tea

A great coffee hot spot in Braamies is Doubleshot Coffee and Tea. With a welcoming roasted coffee aroma and tasty baked goods to go with your aromatic coffee, this is a great place to just relax. And, if you want to take some great coffee home with you, you can buy some stock to take home and enjoy. Their double shot flat white is so good!
