Sydney is inundated with great cafes serving all sorts of delectable pastries and sandwiches and coffee selections that stun an American tourist. To survive this type of competitive environment, you need something special - and this place has it. Located IN the NSW State Library,...More

We called here on a showery morning for morning tea. Service was cheerful and efficient. The food was tasty and we were able to enjoy it, have a chat and move on when the rain stopped. A handy venue in Macquarie Street for a snack.
