Two espressos $10
Blueberry muffin $7.20
Spinach and feta triangle pastry $9.90
Total cost $27.10

The coffees were okay, apart from being horribly overpriced. The muffin was clearly from a packet mix as tasted synthetic and only had a couple of token blueberries (didn’t even come with butter!) The pastry was okay but bland.
For what was very ordinary bakery food this was very expensive — the most overpriced cafe of our stay in Sydney. Avoid.

Delicious sourdough toasted with eggs and bacon and a great flat white coffee. Actually the coffee everywhere in Australia was fantastic. The Bakers Oven cafe in the heart of the Rocks and across the road from the Museum of Contemporary Art. Great for breakfast.

My friend and I ordered a small flat white, a small latte, an apple tart and a meat & veggie pastie. The service was ok, but the apple tart was awful - pasty was hard and tasteless. To make the matter worth, there is no price clearly displayed on the menu or windows. We ended up paying $30 for the meal. It does not worth the money. Don't trap into the window display. This cafe will rip you off. Very disappointed.

Never said a negative or complained ever! Been here often as a local. Normally good food. BUT NOT TODAY. We started off ordering a large skim cap and mocha and got a small. Then the order: poached eggs with tomato and mushroom with no butter or oil. Ham panini with NO tomato. The waiters were nice but being backpackers, obviously from the order we received, couldn't understand very well. The poached eggs were perfect, mushrooms swam in oil and white bread with butter dripping off it. The tomato splice was so thinly cut it petered off half way. The panini arrived with 3 slices of tomato on each piece and the cheese would've been a quarter of a slice on each square not even melted. When we tried to discuss it on the way out, the reg lady had nothing to give (no sorry no feedback no service). We have been here often but unfortunately after todays visit will be going elsewhere.

I've had the caramel slice from here a few times, but will not anymore. The last time I got one the price was the same, but the portion is now HALF what it used to be. I wouldn't have minded paying a bit extra for the original size, but to pay the same for less is such a rip off. Such a bad business decision.

Take your money elseware.

I just hope they are reading these websites to realise how bad their cafe actually is.
