And best quality food. Mayby service just a tad slow, but the food, lattes and camomile tea was worth waiting for. Reasonably priced, we would go again.

We went here for a quick drink after work. It took a long time to get table service each time we wanted to order a round. Wouldn't go back.

Wow!! Coffee doesn't often give me a "kick" but this certainly did, delicious and cheap, turned up on a horribly cold day and the lovely waitress brought us inside and popped a little heater on our table to warm us up! That made my day

The service was excellent at this restaurant where we were attended by charming waitresses who presented us with a menu which, surprisingly, had a nice selection of Italian specialties. They were mostly basic items that I have tried in many parts of the world. I ordered one that caught my attention, “pumpkin ravioli,” served with pine nuts and spinach in... More

Nice city buzz for lunch. It better on a beautiful Sydney sunny day. The indoor area is very small. The food is nice with a good portions and reasonably priced

Nice place in a good central location with friendly staff. Unfortunately the food on the day I had lunch there with friends wasn't great. I ordered seafood risotto which was a bit over cooked and obviously heated in a microwave as it was hot in some places and barely warm in others. Good coffee though.

Tasty breakfast with good coffee & light options at city prices (not cheap). Outstanding location in heart of CBD. Accoustics of the hard decor made it noisy when half-full, difficult to have a conversation. Service was adequate, not outstanding.

We dropped by to have coffee while waiting for our friend to finish work. I hate the flat white which is ok while my friend had vanila shake which is not bad. Nice place to just have a cup of coffee/drinks in the city centre after walking for some time. They do serve lunch and cookies/cakes too but choices are... More

Every city needs a central, well located "simple" dining venue, and this establishment serves the purpose well. Service was friendly and efficient, with a reasonable basic choice of mid-day options. Indoor and outdoor seating available and a pleasant break to "take the load of one's feet", while watching the world go by.

Had breakfast there but the waiting time was quite long even though the place was not full. And when it finally arrived my eggs and bacon were almost cold.

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.
