Nellie Rose in Whitman  which opened in December 2015  has had postive buzz with Swampies even hosting the first and only Swamp Mob breakfast.

My husband and I tried Nellie Rose in Whitman for breakfast today. The reviews have been good in here and we were not disappointed! The food was delicious, cooked perfectly, and the place was charming and cozy! Two thumbs up!

This morning I tried Nellie Rose Restaurant in Whitman for the first time, and it was a good experience. I had the Nellie’s Favorite Breakfast dish, which consisted of two eggs, home fries, home made corn beef hash, and corn bread. The food was good and so was the service. I will be going back there because there were many things I want to try. They also serve lunch.

Went to Nellie Rose for breakfast this is the third time we’ve gone there and it was tasty as usual! I just have a couple things that I found to be out of character for Nellie Rose, the hash was a little mushy today, but otherwise tasty. The home fries were a little bit harder than I like them but the flavor was good. The other thing that gets on my nerves at any restaurant is when the waitresses are too attentive, we had 3 different girls taking care of us, and it seemed like every 30 seconds we had someone asking if we’d like more coffee when we hadn’t even started the cup in front of us. Other than that it was good as always. I had the veggie omelette with home fries, rye toast and a side of hash, I started with a pistachio muffin which was tasty. My mom had Nellies favorite which she said was excellent as usual. My step mom had a 2 egg breakfast with hash browns that could’ve spent another minute or two on the flat top. Overall it was pretty good and of course we’all be back!

Today I went back to Nellie Rose’s in Whitman. I really can’t get enough of that place LOL. My mom wanted to take her cousin out for her birthday for breakfast so of course I had to tag along haha.I got the “scrambler”. It was fluffy eggs, fried peppers and onions, potatoes and your choice of cheese, I got American. Of course I had to get their grilled corn bread again vs toast, they give that option at no extra cost….. I suggest, get the corn bread!
Both my mom and her cousin got eggs and hash. They also had the hash browns and naturally the corn bread. Both my mom and I were saying the scrambled eggs are exceptionally good. I don’t know what they do to them but they’re so GOOD! I got another flavored iced coffee (mocha cinnamon swirl, I think???) Haha I can’t remember, that was hours ago but I do know I loved it!
I almost forgot about the pancake! It was very good AND they give you REAL butter for it! That shows its a good place.
The staff their are all so pleasant.

What is a Swamp Mob?

.A Swamp mob is a pre arranged dinner that Swampie mob the restaurant kind of like a cash mob. Swampie have been hitting local restaurants to share in good food and conversations. Calories never count at a Swamp Mob and who starts their New year diet before the first Monday of January.

 Here is some of the Buzz on Hockomock Swamp Supper Club facebook group

“Maaaaaan…Not over cooked, not undercooked, if I lived here I would eat here at least three times a week”. Quote from my very picky friend about his omelet from Nellie Rose.
Fantastic breakfast! Irish eggs Benedict, blueberry muffin, Nellies Favorite, corned beef hash, home fries, hash browns…ALL were excellent!
Thanks for showing my mid-west friend how we do breakfast in New England.

So finally made it to Nellie Rose’s. Parking lot was full but plenty of tables. I ordered corn beef hash as I heard how good it was, it was delicious. not too salty at all, perfect! My daughter ordered eggs Benedict with fried potatoes, huge portions, potatoes not greasy at all. Waitress name Jackie was very friendly, helpful, told us about the swamp mob coming. The owner Scott came over and said hi. very nice. Will definitely be going back, loved it!

Went to Nellie Rose this morning. I started with a pistachio muffin.it was good. I got the Phili steak n cheese omelette w peppers and onions. It was huge! Homefries on the side and I could get toast or corn bread. Of course I went with corn bread. Nellierosebreak3My son got the chocolate chip pancakes. They were enormous as he said. My friend got the Rte 18 breakfast sandwich with fried bologna. She said it was good. She also got a special which was a waffle with peanut butter and bananas which she also said was good.. The food was amazing. The service was ok. My food came out after the pancakes and breakfast sandwich. Then the waffle came out after my omelette..they said they ran out of waffle mix and had to make it.

Nellie Rose New Breakfast Restaurant in Whitman MA

Nellie Rose is a new breakfast and breakfast and lunch  place that has opened in mid December  up on Route 18 in Whitman where Andy’s seafood has been.

Here is the buzz from the Hockomock Swamp Supper club community-mostly postive and there are some growing pains

Went to Nellie Rose in Whitman for brunch the other day, because who doesn’t want to try Nellie Rose New Breakfast Restaurant in Whitman MA South Shore out the new breakfast place in town?  I ordered Nellie’s favorite breakfast. This includes 2 eggs, home fries or hash browns, and toast along with their homemade corned beef hash ($7.99). I am sort of obsessed with good corned beef hash, so I had to try it. I was not disappointed! Amazing, and definitely not from a can! The prices on most menu items are decent, portions are good, and the order came up pretty quick. Service was nice, Heather took great care of me.
After paying the bill, I decided to take a bowl of clam chowder home with me for my hubby, and ordered it to go. It was close to closing time, and they had run out, so they told me it would be a few minutes. I was bummed to find out it wasn’t made in house, but from frozen in a bag. And for the price ($5.99) I got about 6.5oz of soup, which was very disappointing as well.  Overall, a great place to grab breakfast or lunch, but maybe skip the soup

Nellie Rose New Breakfast Restaurant in Whitman MA South Shore  Finally tried out Nellie Rose breakfast today on Rt. 18 in Whitman. It deserves the rave reviews it has received. Friendly wait staff, great food and reasonable prices. Ain’t nothing fancy but it sure was satisfying. The pictures don’t do the meal justice. I had to take them quickly ‘cuz my friend saw my camera and said, ” Are you going to Swampie the meal ?”
And a new phrase was born.

My wife and I went out to do our food shopping this morning and wanted to try the newest breakfast spot in Whitman, The Nellie Rose Restaurant. We walked in and immediately felt at home with the decor and friendly staff. We were sat immediately and greeted with a small Nellie Rose New Breakfast Restaurant in Whitman MA South Shorebowl of assorted fresh breakfast breads (the pistachio bread is out of this world!). They offer standard breakfast fare (eggs, pancakes, waffles) but everything is homemade and scratch made. We asked our waitress about the house made bagels (yep, that’s a thing here) and she told us to make sure we microwave them because they don’t use preservatives so they are a little hard. What great service! My wife ordered the Eggs Benedict (which is her go to breakfast dish) and I went with the meat lovers omelet (bacon, sausage, ham, linguica and chourico…OH MY). The omelet was packed with meat and cheese and the perfect hearty meal to start my deal. We both ordered our shredded hash browns well done and we were not disappointed at all! My wife loved her Eggs Benedict and we grabbed a pair of Asiago cheese bagels to go for tomorrows breakfast. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend checking this place out if you’re in the area

My mom and I went to Nellie Rose this morning in Whitman.We were greeted by a friendly staff.  Our waitress was Tiffany. She was pleasant and sweet. She brought us a small bowl of donuts/cookies/muffin pieces. I LOVED that idea!! An appetizer for breakfast!!!! There is an impressive case of goodies to go also!  I opted for the cheese omelette with home fries and toast.  Okay, before I continue, I have to say that when I seen the toast, I was overjoyed! Why? Because I go to Reids in Brockton and they have the best toast, east of the Mississippi! I know what you all are thinking: “toast is toast!”  Um. NO!! I can’t explain it but it’s big and soft and toasty!  Okay, so getting to the omelette: I have to say that I wasn’t impressed with it. The reason? It was very dry. Almost overdone, if you will.The home fries had a wonderful texture, BUT the seasonings they use in them ruins them.Nellie Rose New Breakfast Restaurant in Whitman MA

The manager asked how everything was and my mom told her about the home fries and she graciously offered my mom to try the hash brown. mom LOVED it! I didn’t try it but it looked incredible. Perfectly done and not a bit of grease on the plate.  In all fairness, I was feeling ill before I arrived so my taste may have been off. I will try it again though. I usually have a policy that I will not try a place that is newly opened for at least six months but kind of broke that.  The decor and service are wonderful! I’ve enclosed a picture of the chairs that someone else had talked about earlier.
