If you’re looking for a calm and comfortable atmosphere, hop into Rosewood Cafe, 118 S. Main St. in Vicksburg. Sip your favorite beverage while enjoying freshly baked muffins, cookies and cupcakes. Or have the grilled breakfast sandwiches, quiche, soup, salads, sandwiches and wraps for lunch and dinner.
Jill Lindsley opened the cafe in November, 2013, after owning and operating Rosewood Flowers for 16 years.
The biggest draw to Rosewood Cafe is the coffee since the shop offers all kinds of coffee creations as well as selling coffee by the pound. The Coffee Club allows patrons to purchase a coffee cup and fill it with fresh brew every day for a small monthly fee. Punch cards also make it a value to get your coffee, coffee creations or smoothies at Rosewood.
The head baker, Blair Gunberg, makes everything from scratch. Baked right on the premises are blueberry muffins, French vanilla and chocolate krinkle cookies, cupcakes. Fresh fruit is baked right in the muffin batter. Cupcake selections include raspberry with lemon frosting, topped with a fresh raspberry or strawberry with fresh strawberries blended into the frosting and a fresh strawberry on top.
Other choices are the Hawaiian pineapple and coconut cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes for the chocolate lovers, and dark chocolate salted caramel cupcakes. Blair also makes soups and salads, using herbs grown in the front window of the cafe.
While enjoying your coffee, you can browse the gifts and flowers at Rosewood Flowers, located in the same building.
Soon Rosewood will introduce free delivery within the village limits with a minimum order of $20. To avoid the rush, Lindsley requests you place orders early in the day, or even the day before.
