"Who is Rosie?" is usually the first question people ask us. Rosie was the grandmother of Debbi Bourgerie, who owns Rosie's with her husband, Michael. The restaurant is named in her honor. Her dedication to good quality food and family inspired Debbi to do the same when opening Rosie's. Why is Rosie's so good? Likely because we make just about everything—our baked goods, homemade bread, dressings, soups—from scratch, or maybe, it just runs in the family. Rosie's is a full-service Breakfast and Lunch restaurant with a full bakery, with three locations on the Northside of Indianapolis. Each location has its own unique character and offerings, but all of them feel like you're dining with your closest family and friends. Debbi's dad was a successful St. Louis restaurateur, and many of her crowd-pleasing recipes go back generations. Whatever it is, it works. When the first Rosie's Place opened in Noblesville in 2010, it was an instant hit among locals. Even non-locals began making the drive for its delicious, handcrafted baked goods, comfort food, and service that feels familial.
Our claim to fame...that Ooey Gooey Butter Cookie we are sure you have heard of through the grapevine. It is an original Rosie's spin on the St. Louis staple, Gooey Butter Cake. If you haven't tried them, they are reason enough to stop by one of our locations. They make a great gift (especially to yourself). You can also buy these on our website and ship them nationwide. We have even started selling them in a few large-scale grocery stores in Midwest like Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme, Market District, and others, so keep your eyes peeled.
Addictive cookies aside, the real key to Rosie's success may be Debbi and Michael's commitment to the communities they serve. In addition to the original Noblesville store, our Rosie's communities now include Zionsville, since 2014 and Carmel, since 2018. So, please stop in and see us, shop our famous cookies online for breakfast or lunch, or look for them in your local grocery store. There are many ways to join Rosie's family. Fair warning, though: Once you do, chances are good you will be coming back—again and again.
