It is three years since we have had the pleasure of eating here and the food is still exceptional. It is imaginative, fresh and offers great value for money. Even though we also dined at top end restaurants during our recent Sydney stay, this cafe is certainly a firm favourite.

Loved my brunch here in January. Cold brew coffee (tick), awesome vegetarian meal (tick) and while I remember there was more than one vegetarian option (double tick) Very reasonably priced and super delicious. Highly recommend.

We stayed in Sydney for 3 days in a near by hotel and we got this place recommended by one of friends. Jesus this place was awesome, no wonder it's so busy. The breakfast was awesome. Something for everyone. The eggs were done to perfection, there was some dishes that were quite unique. We came here all three mornings we... More

Went here two mornings in a row to have breakfast. The menu is really interesting and the food is so delicious and beautifully presented. Iced brewed tea was great as was the flat white. Had the chia pudding and the smashed avo toast and both were amazing. My dad had the fresh fruit salad and enjoyed it as well. Would... More

I didn't know what to expect - but let me start by saying that the salad bowl of the day was well worth it - quinoa salad and a chickpea and lentil salad - I had it with poached chicken and my sister had it with smoked salmon - totally delicious and just what we needed to fuel us on... More

Went for Breakfast with 10 people after some docked after a cruise. Service was friendly and efficient for a larger group. The coffee was OK, with the meals arriving quickly. The only disappointing meal was the special beans which were not that tasty. Would recommend however.

First came here last May on my first trip to Sydney and loved it then - the breakfasts are great (cliche of smashed avo, ricotta and poached egg), the coffee excellent (although v quick service, there's still queues for it which I'm taking as a good sign) and the vibe nice. Juice, coffee and fab breakfast for under $25 smashes... More

Recently revealing its Brooklyn-inspired renovation, this cool and contemporary cafe offers a succinct menu of fresh and tasty offerings from braised-pork sliders to salmon gravlax with fennel salad. They pride themselves on the highest standard in coffee, from cold brewed to single origin espresso - to be enjoyed at a picturesque window seat or to-go when you're on the run.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
