We were staying down the street and wanted a quick breakfast top start our day. Good price and good food. Everyone enjoyed their food. Opens at 8 on Saturdays. Some small tables inside for eating at. Everything is fresh and they also have items for lunch.

Found this place by accident walking to an appointment. Went in for coffee and food. The cakes were to die for! They also had meals, soups etc. But the croissants and pies were fabulous. Only small with cute round tables, it reminds you of Paris! Staff were good.

Grabbed a poached chicken roll. It was great with crunchy pancetta nicely off setting the texture of the chicken some spice as well. Bread was good as youd expect from a bakery.

Wow what a nice bakery. Everything seems to be handmade. We had the ham&cheese croissant and it was amazing. We had a hot chocolate and a cappucino both were great. We will go there next time to try some other great looking things we saw there !

Only been here once so far and had a chocolate poppy seed twist (delicious) I will be back here regularly! Quick service and not your average bakery.

i stopped in here for a quick breakfast before heading to the airport. My latte and pan au chocolate hit the spot. I would not say there was anything particularly special about the atmosphere or the service, it was all pretty perfunctory, but the food and coffee was delicious. Seating is limited so probably not ideal for groups - more... More

We first discovered CBD when we arrived in Sydney last July. I've drunk lots of coffee since, but CBD is still my fave ... well done!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
