Rude overpriced and rubbish pies

$9 Chicken and mushroom pies tasted of cardboard...service was rude. We got dessert to go...lemon tart was actually lovely but my husband's yoghurt was not great. 2 stars for the lemon tart but I paid well for it. Stop being so lazy and not giving a damn. Up your game.

Walking to the Sunday Rocks market from the intercontinental. Have seen a lot of people getting in line in the store; thinking it won't be that bad although i am a bit skeptical as obviously its location is very touristic..but thought that I would trust my instinct WHICH is COMPLETELY WRONG.... crap coffee & sausage roll ( the worst i...

Really Bad lemon Tart. Certainly not in the best category, actually I'd say that seeing as it went straight into the bin it doesn't rate at all! Lemon tart from the Bakers Oven Sydney. $8.00, pastry 1.5cm thick and the curd was straight out of a packet I'd guess. Really disappointing not to mention the rude service. Wish I'd put... More

Stopped for lunch at this cafe (two adults, three children) and served by friendly and efficient staff. The cafe looked like it needed a good cleaning and the toilets were in desperate need of some attention. Unfortunately we had already ordered drinks for five (no alcohol) sides of fries for kids and ham/cheese croissant. All of the serves were average,... More

We just went there for breakfast and it was not good! Eggs over cooked, eggs Benedict sauce was horrible, probably straight from a bottle. Then the bill came and it was $63!! There is sooo many better options in this area of Sydney. Don't get fooled by this place.

We dined at this for breakfast. After walking around the rocks, we discovered this hidden cafe in the nurses walk. As it was busy, we though it would be a good place for breakfast. Upon receiving the menu, the price was far above the other cafes in the area, with a pie being $19! We received our table water, with... More

Im sorry to say but i was very disappointed in what i had for breakfast. Croissant was very dry just fell apart. Partners breakfast looked like it was just thrown on the plate. Coffee was very weak and the chai was sickly sweet. Sorry never go back over priced

Exspensive.. 2 teas made with a bag not leaves. 1 wholemeal scone that was so dry could have used it as a door wedge. Cheap butter & jam presented in plastic containers. No cream.. Hazelnut slice was nice but at $9 was overpriced. Bill came before we had even half finished.. Take my tip keep on walking & find something... More

They have tasty tarts, but pay 11AUD for one is simply too much. Average coffee and it has nothing extraordinary. Never again.

We were tempted in by the lavish display of cakes in the window but should have kept walking. Two cups of tea and four cakes (2 for our daughters!) cost $45. We sat at tables outside which were not very clean. A visit to the toilets did not bode well either as they looked like they had not been cleaned... More
