Family-owned. Locally loved. Always delicious.
That’s usually the first question people ask us. It’s often followed by: “Why is her food so gosh-darned good?”
The first question is easy to answer. Rosie was the grandmother of Debbi Bourgerie, who owns Rosie’s with her husband, Michael. The restaurant is named in her honor.
That second question is a little more complicated.
Maybe it’s because we make just about everything—our baked goods, breads, dressings, soups—from scratch. Or maybe it runs in the family. 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 comfort food and everybody-knows-your-name vibe.
And for the gooey butter cookies. If you didn’t know, they’re sort of a thing.
Addictive cookies aside, the real key to Rosie’s success may be Debbi and Michael’s commitment to the communities they serve. And now those communities include Zionsville and Carmel, where Rosie’s opened new locations in 2014 and 2018, respectively.
So come on in and see us. Fair warning, though: Once you do, chances are good you’ll be coming back—again and again.
And, don’t be surprised if we know you by name the next time you come in.
