Not too many people associate pizzerias with breakfast, but Rosa’s Restorante and Pizzeria wants to change that.

With the latest meal added to the menu the restaurant hopes to not only deliver quality diner-style breakfast dishes, but to also fulfill a need in a community where the focus is mainly on lunch and dinner.

“We have fresh baked goods, muffins and bagels for people on the run,” said owner Rosa Spera.

Breakfast is served at 6 o’clock The menu includes items like Grade A large egg omelets served with home fries and bread ($5.95); Breakfast sandwiches like the western egg sandwich served on toast, hard roll bagel or English muffin (starting at $2.95); golden traditional pancakes (starting at ($4.50); a short stack of French toast ($3.50); and Belgian waffles ($3.95).

The restaurant, which originally served lunch and dinner, has been around for ten years, though Rosa has been in the business for more than 30 years. Her father owned Pizza Star, 301 N Harrison St., Princeton, which was the family’s first official restaurant.

A completely different crew is used to serve the meal. Rosa also said she runs the restaurant with the community in mind and that goes for the breakfast service as well.

“We like to tell people to call in so they’ll have it ready,” she said.

That way, customers on the run can get their meals to go.

Rosa is the winner of two Hamilton business awards. The restaurant is located on 3442 S. Broad St, Hamilton, just north of the I-195 Broad Street exit, and can be reached at (609) 581-9053.
