Met with friends for lunch. Not much of a meal selection, though the food on offer was of a high standard. The servings well portioned. A good wholesome meal. It definitely needs a makeover as far as the decor goes. However if you take the...More

Had breakfast here while in Sydney for a conference. Initially went in because of the handy location and interesting atmosphere; the waterfall in the courtyard provides a great backdrop.

Have met with people for business meetings there a couple of times. Good central location that most people can find. Quieter than some of the other cafes in the nearby QVB

Love the outdoor courtyard with the fountain. Seems like this place has been here forever. Breakfast was okay, but annoyed they forgot the water.

The atmosphere here is unique. It's like an oasis with the waterfall. The service is fast and the barista is really nice. The food came out very fast. It's not trendy food but old fashioned food that's fresh with big serves. Two can share a...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
