Rosie’s has been serving up home style meals to the Middlebury community for over thirty years and its site has been creating memories for many years before that. Rosie’s location on Rt. 7 south was home to Palmer’s Dairy Bar in the 1950’s before it became Rosie’s Restaurant in 1978.
While some things about Rosie’s have changed over the years, much of its menu, décor and even its faces have not. General Manager Ron Sunderland has been working hard at Rosie’s since 1971, and Dining Room Manager June Denis started working at Rosie’s when she was only nineteen. You will still find her smiling face when you come through the doors thirty-two years later. Owner Kevin Cummings celebrated his twenty-third year of ownership this year and valued dish washer Steve Welch has been behind the scenes for twenty-three years as well.
Along with multiple dining areas, Rosie’s also offers that true coffee counter experience, a feature which has existed in the same place since the Palmer’s Dairy days back in 1953. The Addison County Rotary Club have been holding their meetings at Rosie’s for over 15 years and Middlebury Lion’s Club starting meeting there in 2007.
