Treated to a visit whilst in Sydney. First time visit and wow loved the atmosphere, the buzz even late at night people queue for their baked donuts or chimney cake. So finger licking delightful. Staff were exceptional, This café also sells cakes and slices by weight which is novel and cost effective, so many to choose from.

Order by the kilo cakes are also really good. Our favorite was a hazelnut cake. But plum poppy seed was also really good as was rhubarb. There is a reasonable amount... More

I am told that kurtosh means something like "chimney-pot" in Hungarian. Because these delicious pastries are baked around a sort of specialised rolling pin, and look like a chimney-pot when they come out. Whatever, they are just yum!

This place is all about amazing flavors, textures and aromas...all under a magic tree that makes the spot even more special. Staff is always amiling and tables are properly clean. Thank you.

Walking past this place at 7am, it was just opening and the sweet smell of cakes and pastries opened my eyes and taste buds. The staff are friendly and speedy and alrhough I only got coffee, which was supurb, all the sweets and pastries looked apetitising. Highly recommend. Only wish they had plain croissants.

Always great cakes, awesome concept. Located in a really popular spot and is very central for meeting. Coffee is a bit of a let down
