In 1956, a tiny widow from Ohio named Rose Naftalin moved to Portland and opened a small restaurant on NW 23rd Avenue. She spent many years preparing the entrees and desserts herself.
Soon her authentic New York-style deli fare, Reuben's, matzo ball soup, desserts, specialty cakes and The Rose's Original Giant Cinnamon Roll attracted many locals and out-of-towners. Rose was well known as a great chef and cookbook author. She gained recognition across the nation as "Grandma Rose."
This Rose's Restaurant and Bakery in Sherwood, Oregon, has been opened since 2003 and continues to prepare some of her amazing recipes and takes pride in the carrying out some of her traditions.
A Visit to Rose's is about great food and making memories. Enjoy!
