Enjoyed breakfast at this lovely venue. Early Saturday morning before the crowds arrived. Service good and friendly. I had the Salmon Benedict which was tasty but the salmon portions very small and hiding under the eggs. My partner's scrambled eggs on toast was very good.

$7.40 for a bottle of Lipton Iced Tea? $9 for a bottle of Sparkling Mineral Water. The prices here are excessive for little value with small serves. The food is uninspired, but not horrible. Location is the only plus. The photo included does have no tomato on request. I had tomato with my Mushroom Omelette, which was well cooked, but... More

Coffee came out cold. No apology or sorry we will remake it..... food was ridiculously over priced. 2 eggs on toast $17 bottle of sparkling water $9, smallest amount of sauce on a Bene. Would not recommend coming here ever....

Stopped here for lunch and was disappointed at the selection on the menu. There was nothing interesting but very standard selection of foods. Indoors can be a bit noisy due to the small space and floorboards. Sitting outside is far better.

The food was tasteless and cold, don't waste your money!! One of the worst restaurants in sydney. We ordered the aussie burger which looked nothing like an aussie burger, and the chicken parmigiana was even worse

Stopped by this place for a spot of afternoon tea whilst browsing the Queen Victoria Building. Lovely atmosphere and the staff were great. Service was fast and efficient. Cakes were to die for.

A wonderful coffee house where you can go in, have a coffee and cake and feel relaxed by the regal décor, the refurbished charm of the QVB and the wonderful smell of good coffee.

In the famous Queen Victoria Building at the first floor you find The old Vienna Coffee House. Original cake from Germany. Fine selection and a good service. Love to be there and have a nice cup of coffee.

Good location to meet for a coffee - but be prepared for a long wait for order taking and an even longer wait for table delivery.

I took a table, a waiter gave me a menu, I sat there close to 20 minutes, no one then came back to take my order. So I walked out

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.
