Came here on Friday night after going to the Lunar markets in Chinatown. Since it was a Friday night it was fairly busy. We lined up and waited for about 5 minutes until we got a table which wasn't quite bad. After we sat down and had a look at the menu, we ordered a few things. The waffles... read more

I needed coffee and a rest. I thought that this place would be too crowded to sit and relax but I was happy to find a seat and sit and enjoy my coffee and the most divine strawberry tart. Will defiantly stop here again.

Anyone who is a fan of the famous seashell Guylian chocolates will be attracted to this café - I was! Coffee is really good, and I'm fussy about coffee, I'd give it a 7 or 8 out of ten. The pastries are also really yummy, I've been half a dozen times and I've never had one that wasn't fresh. One... More

This restaurant is a chocoholic's dream. There are so many choices for how you'd like to consume chocolate...pastries, cookies, truffles, or chocolate drinks. The hot chocolate is truly amazing. You can have milk, dark, or pecan hot chocolate. We chose dark and were served a cup with a dark chocolate candy in the bottom and a pitcher of hot chocolate... More

I love this place for a light breakfast. I'm glad they open early and have a Breakfast Special which consists of a pastry and coffee. I love how every hot drink like coffee or hot chocolate comes with a piece of Guylian chocolate which you can melt in your drink. I haven't seen a Guylian cafe in the other countries... More

Me and my friend went to Guylian Cafe on the Darling Quarter. We was looking for a place to hang-out after our lunch around the CBD. So we decided to take a stroll to Darling Harbour. The service was alright, the server keep coming to your table until you put your orders on, and after that they'll leave you alone.... More

During our trip we went to the cafe at Circular Quay twice. I only had the hot chocolate once and compared it to another place and it stood out above the rest. I even inquired if I could buy some to take back with me but they didn't sell a drinking chocolate product. My husband also enjoyed their coffee compared... More

So, I'm over 60. So, I'm trying to control my weight. But I still did this and I am glad. I had a delicious iced chocolate drink twice at Guylian Cafes in Sydney: once on the Circular Quay and then at one located in The Rocks. Yes, it was decadent. And yes, I'd do it again! Superb! Just do it!

If you read my opera house review you will know that we were quite Hungary after the show. Found this cafe wow if you like chocolate this is the place to visit. I had Peppermint chocolate drink + Waffle felt a little guilty but wow it was great.
