This is cheap and cheerful. It's a bit like a cafeteria with lots of options. Coffee surprisingly good. Ok for a quick bite

Whether you've been out on a boat from Rose Bay and want some welcome refreshment, or have spent some leisure time in Lyne Park, this cafe is ideal. Super friendly service, great looking (and tasting) food. There's a covered section with tables and chairs, plus some toys to keep the kids amused. Also some outdoor seating or you can pick... More

Good Aussie breakfast saves money if you are staying at nearby five star hotels. Good to catch up with clients

Had lunch with a work colleague there yesterday while on a business trip to Sydney. Decent sandwiches and chips. Pasta and other selections as well. Friendly service. Reasonable prices. More cafeteria style than cafe.

I eat here often due to low prices, access to newspapers and magazines. However I only order food that needs to be made to order, as not sure how long the food has been sitting in the trays for. So good for a mid week lunch that is low cost, ie less than $10 for hamburger and chips.

We ate breakfast here twice last week as we were staying next door at the Sydney Wentworth. We thought the breakfast was well presented and good value for money. The staff were really nice and remembered us on our second visit. The lunch and sandwich menus looked good although we didn't try them, only because we were busy in different... More

we usually have our team breakfasts at this venue and we either pre-order our food or order as soon as we arrive. On two occassions now, these guys have forgotten orders / food. The most recent occurance was my order that I placed on the morning. Really not good enough.

We stayed in the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, but the breakfast was so expensive. We discovered if you take the lift to the 1st floor it takes you to the back entrance of the hotel, as you come out of the glass doors on to the main road turn left and you will see MoF (Ministry of Food) next door. They... More

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.
