Great coffee and brilliant hot chocolate

This outlet serves great take away coffee and brilliant hot chocolate. Service is fast and friendly with the only gripe being its a bit pricy - a little occasional indulgence does not hurt.

The desserts were simply awesome. I had the belgian chocloate mousse panna cotta (At least I think that was what it was called) and it was rich and perfect.

Appalling rude service. Staff didn't listen to order then got it wrong so asked about it and got attitude in return. So rude. Will never be back!

Whether your a local, showing off magnificent Sydney Harbour to overseas guests, or enjoying a cafe and sweets pre or post show at the Opera House this is my fave oasis. Decadent chocolate desserts, belgium waffles, cakes galore & great coffee, need more tempting, I think not. Enjoying this whilst taking in the view, makes it unbeatable.

$5.80 is steep for a coffee, but when it was the best I've had in a. year, I'm happy even if it took 2 tries to get an order of two cappuccinos correct. People keep telling me that it's easy to get a decent coffee in Sydney these days but so many places still can't do it

This was my second visit & happy both times. Staff are polite, helpful and always smiling. Was here for coffee today but after knocking back a couple of glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and devouring a Lemon Meringue tart I will definately come back. Left happy & relaxed.

When you are queuing for a take-away coffee, and notice that both the person in front of you, and yourself, are unable to use credit card "due to the $10 EFTPOS minimum", you know that you're dealing with a cafe that does not know how to handle all visiting customers, and is not capitalising on the money that they just...
