One waiter spilled my girlfriends coffee on the table, spilled more coffee while trying to clean it! The other waiter dropped my toasted sandwich, took it inside and came back with another one (only 30 seconds later!). The bill was served 2 minutes after the order was put on the table (even though we had not asked for it yet),... More

We had a mixture of pies, paninis and calamari. All nice but not especial. We enjoyed our food and as we were on the move it was ideal fare. We had no complaints but neither were we salivating for more. It's probably a little above the average score. The service was very good and we enjoyed the outdoor seating at... More

The pies that are sold here are full of taste and are good for the price. We enjoyed the pies for a light lunch. The staff were very friendly and yes we would get some take away from them again. The pastries were very nice and very rich apparently according to my partner. There is no scenic view of the... More

After noticing almost all their food on display has no prices I asked where I might find the prices (was there a menu?). A rude, brash response resulted, obviously thought it was an unreasonable question (who buys items with no price?). I walked out and ate elsewhere. There are far nicer people to spend your money with nearby.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

We decided to try this place for lunch. We were given a table on the patio and given our menu. We waited for about 10 minutes for the waitress to come back and take our order. We finally got our food. I had a Chicken and Mushroom pie and my husband had the Lasagna. The pie was just so so,... More
