Sleepy-headed locals turn up at Rose's for the breakfast pizza of smoked ham, eggs, and fontina; house-baked pastries and breads; poached eggs with Yukon Gold potato and mushroom hash; and soft polenta with mascarpone and jam. Midday is time for pizza with wild nettles, or linguine with clams. Evening hours find customers eating their way through more pizza and pasta if on a budget, and skirt steak and a glorious roasted chicken if not. The ingredients are top-notch, the
service is friendly, and the seating is in comfortable booths and at tables and a counter. Heaters above the outdoor tables keep things toasty when the temperature dips. Expect long lines for Sunday brunch.

While on vacation, we ate here a couple of mornings. My bland egg dish was small, the toast was small, and the price wasn't. If I am going to spend $20 on breakfast, I would at least like something to eat. On the plus side, the granola was great!!
