Our group of 20 had lunch there two days in a row. Good food, good service, a friendly, warm spot on a cold winter day.

We were pretty tired and hungry driving up from Kenai and this place was hopping busy! Service was great and food was excellent.

We were staying in Healy, and there aren't a lot of nearby options for dinner. We ended up at Rose's Cafe and were happy with our choice. The food was filling and tasted fine - I tried the chili and my husband had a burger and fries. It's not gourmet, but it worked great for a quick bite.

This is a great place to have breakfast, with a large list of alternatives, and a specially kind staff to help foreigners to decide. Good food and convenient location on the road from Anchorage.

Picture chili with grease floating on top. I could barely eat any of it, and it kept me up for hours afterwards. I would rather walk across burning coals than go to Rose's again. One of the worst meals I have ever eaten...

Just 11 miles north of Denali Park on the Parks Highway, Rose's Cafe offers travellers a menu which should meet everyone's needs. Open for breakfast lunch and dinner the friendly staff go out out of their way to make customers feel welcome and "at home". Travellers need have no hesitation in stopping here for a meal.

If the locals hangout here, you know it is good. Breakfast was large portions and yummy. Enjoyed their homemade salsa. Went back the next day to grab a couple sourdough donuts to go, but they were out. They only make donuts on Mon, Wed, Fri.

We went there everyday we were in Healy/Denali. This is a great place to start your day. We had huge breakfasts served with homemade sourdough bread.
