ENJOYABLE PLACE FOR LUNCH

This very 'cafe' like venue has inside and courtyard tables and suggests a Parisian like atmosphere. Probably not the best place for no-carb dieters, the menu comprises mainly pies, cakes and other baked food (it is called the 'Bakers Oven' after all) but the food is excellent and the service fast... read more

Sorry I happened on the rip-off joint. 2 small toasted sandwiches and two coffee's for £17. The service was bad, the coffees arrived 10 minutes before the sandwiches and was by then cold. Waitress replaced the coffee at no extra cost. I should think so. I guess they had forgotten the toasties. Avoid.

I wish I looked at Trip advisor before going to the Bakers Oven. Massively overpriced at $20 for a terrible meat pie, and probably the worst pie I've had since high school. How disappointing, in such a fine location.

$36.80 for a small lemon tart a small apple tart (AND I MEAN SMALL) and two SMALL cappuccinos! No wonder there are no prices on their window displays!!! I know it's the Rocks but for goodness sake how can this be a fair price. Goodness knows how much a "proper" meal would cost.. I notice another TA Contributor $37 for... More

We stayed nearby in Circular Quay and ate breakfast on several mornings at The Bakers Oven in their shaded outdoor courtyard. Being British we take breakfast seriously! We enjoyed the variety of dishes we sampled from 'full English' to simple fruit salad. The staff tried hard to please, were friendly and efficient. The prices weren't cheap but then nor is... More

We ate a light supper at Bakers Oven and were not impressed with either the Australian sausage roll or the "Turkish open face sandwich". There are many good places to eat near Circular Quay; unfortunately, this is not one of them.

A bill for 1 steak pie (no side of chips and salad, just the meatpie itself), a veggie panini (again, no sides) and 2 soft drinks set us back $37 on a standard sunday morning. Pie had all but 4 small chunks of beef and tasted very average. Pastry was doughy and undercooked, gravy was bland. Could certainly get something... More

We discovered The Bakers Oven by chance on a recent visit to the Rocks in Sydney. The service we experienced was first class. Our waiter was Nicholas, a very pleasant, helpful and polite young man who made our visit extremely pleasurable. The food was delivered very quickly, it was delicious. The coffee was simply one of the best coffees we... More

We visited this cafe having viewed their window display which was impressive, venue has some history as there has been a bakery on this site for many years. We sat in the back area which overlooked a lane and a business premise at a very wobbly plastic table, waiting staff were a little surly. We ordered a steak pie with... More

I have eaten here a few times during my time in Sydney. Its location is very good as it on George Street in the Rocks so it attracts a lot of custom. They have a large choice of freshly prepared food as well as a wealthy selection of cakes and pastries. They have seats outside the front of the cafe... More
