When you need a take away coffee look no further. This small quaint, hidden espresso bar with noisy long queues, surrounded by people waiting for their coffee, is a must. The coffee is strong and rich, the milk is never burnt. It's well worth the...More

Stopped here each morning whilst staying in Sydney for a few nights last week. Had good quality coffee and some of the staff were quite knowledgeable about the beans and the differing single origins and blends they had.

Not much larger than a hole in the wall, Workshop probably serves the best coffee in Sydney CBD not too mention scrumptious jam doughnuts and fresh croissants. It might be small, but it's very good.

This has been my favorite CBD coffee shop for the past two years. The coffee has been reliably good and the food excellent. Unfortunately, the quality and consistency has deteriorated over the past few months and they're at risk of losing my custom. There are...More

I had read about this place online and was glad to accidentally walk by it. They make great cappuccinos! Highly recommended for a coffee to go (not much seating space)

If you're after a really good coffee and a quick snack then pop in here. Seating is limited so you're not inclined to sit a long time but the coffee is too nice to pass by. I also had a salted caramel cronut which I...More

I've been here many times when visiting Sydney, and it's always good coffee here. Nice cafe food too - bacon and egg roll with chilli jam or bbq sauce is a winner.

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
