During a recent visit to Sydney, I had the occasion to have: a coffee meeting, an impromptu dinner, and drinks at the bar. Attentive and friendly service on all seperate occasions. A good option if you want to get away from the madding crowd!

Great chicken pie! Drinks are good but very pricey! Service is good as well. I wish it wasn't talked in the back so not very good for people watching, but great atmosphere v

I met a friend on Saturday afternoon. We ordered coffee and cheese toast with chilli. The coffee took 20 minutes. The toast 40 minutes and when it arrived it was chewy dry and doughy. Very disappointing all round, service and food well below expectations.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
