Reasonable priced with an excellent choice of breakfast foods, I always come here whenever I am in Sydney.

After a tour we went there for lunch. The staff is very welcoming and the food is great. Coffee will take a while, but it is done with a lot of heart and perfect topping (crema on top of the coffee). It is not too expensive considering the fresh food and the location at the Rocks. Would recommend it unrestricted... More

I initially went in for a healthy museli breakfast but ended up having the croque sir which was delicious, but wished the bread had been toasted. Coffee was real good. Great way to start a day of walking & mooching.

A well deserved reputation. A cozy atmosphere, good homestyle food and great coffee. The only down side for us was being charged $5.50 for one poached egg?? Hopefully a mistake but it got too busy for us to hang around and question the staff. Not enough to stop us recommending it as a great breakfast spot.

A very well run store with exceptional staff and food to boot. Ask for the morning muesli, you will not be disappointed. Quite good price and great service from the staff.

Everywhere in the rocks is so expensive, I was so happy when we found this place. The service is efficient and friendly, the atmosphere is cool with a mix of people visiting. We managed to sit outside and enjoyed watching people pass-by while sipping a coffee and eating a gorgeous muffin or amazing granola, fruit and yogurt. They had a... More

Conveniently located by the Holiday Inn- nice little menu and thankfully a nice choice of wine with lunch. Brekkie coffee was good ( ok so I asked for a mocha but we'll let that one slide) muffins bought for kids just didn't have that lovely freshness of a straight-out- the-oven baked good.... Went back for lunch, microwaved lasagne, wine good-... More

We could not get in a month ago, so we were surprised to find plenty of empty tables. After reading some negative reviews we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, service is a bit hit and miss BUT the breakfast we had was great. The Croque Sir and the Brioche with caramalized banana were nearly perfect. Campos coffee finished breakfast off nicely.

We went because of the reviews/rating on Tripadvisor. Husband loved his croque sir, but the kids (waffles) and I (the oats with caramelised banana-recommended by a previous reviewer) didn't like our food. My toast was smothered with butter and honey but the middle was very dry like old bread and the nuts were salty. The waffles were cool and the... More
