About The Roost @ 53

American food truck-style fare, cool tunes and excellent coffees; it’s easy to see why The Roost @ 53 is the cool kid on the block in Southport. A chic-industrial interior design sets a casual and contemporary mood, while a menu of sumptuous picks focusses on all things housemade, including baked breads and tangy sauces. Start the day on the right foot with the quinoa avocado bowl topped with spinach, pesto, boiled egg, beetroot, cherry tomato, sauerkraut and seeds. Join the brunch crowd and enjoy a crisp glass of Whitecliff Sauvignon Blanc with tasty dishes like the brunch burrito with scrambled egg, spinach, pumpkin, cheese, salsa and hot sauce or perhaps the English favourite of toad in a hole with chorizo hash. For those on the go, stop in for a smooth coffee and freshly baked treat.

Great coffee. Friendly service. Delicious pulled pork roll. Home made bread. Great value breakfast.


Great value and good food!


Brilliant food at reasonable prices. I Highly recommend the lunch time special- always a large feed for a great price. Very friendly service


The Roost serves amazing coffee. Love the daily specials too. Am never disappointed when I eat at The Roost!


Amazing! Tried this place out the other day, who would have thought something like this would be in Southport!


The Roost has THE BEST brekkie's around - I am completely addicted to the breakfast burrito and love hanging in their cute little outdoor area. Servers are very friendly and always make me feel at home. I only wish they were open in the evenings!
