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

I went through "the Rocks" and near the harbour, when I met it: "The Bakers Oven Cafe" (- thats the right name ;-)). They do handmade fresh pasties and pies, and a lot of sweets also. A great Bakery with delicious breakfast - and a broad menu for breakfast and a small for Lunch. I had a Big Breakfast and... More

A group of 8 of us popped in here for coffee and dessert after a sumptuous lunch at Fortune of War Pub, a few meters away on George Street, The Rocks. Sydney. You will not be disappointed with coffee and tarts here. We tried the lemon tart, chocolate tart, apple taste and macadamia caramel. They were all excellent. Each tart... More

We ordered a steak sandwich ($20) and a Bacon and egg on sourdough (around $17). I found the portion of the Bacon n egg pitiful. The poached eggs in my plate were either pinched or over cooked. The steak sandwich was bland and the supposedly caramelised onion was barely cooked. Would not come here again.

We really enjoyed our breakfast at this cafe. There is nothing bad I can say. It was reasonably priced. The food tasted just fine and the service was excellent. Coffee was one of the better ones I have had in Sydney. Quaint little courtyard added to the experience.

This place is so insanely overpriced, I'm regretting that I didn't get up and leave just out of principal. Sydney cafes and restaurants are typically very affordable and great quality, given the competition, however this place is rorting the prices based on its proximity across from the harbour. Do yourself a favour and go elsewhere because as a regular visitor... More

It was a cold and rainy day in the Rocks and I was told to go here to have a meat pie. Luckily I got here about 30 minutes before they closed so I was able to get a nice hot meat pie. It definitely felt good eating this after baring the wind and rain. The people were very nice... More

Stopped in for a quick bite. We sat outside in a pleasant area. We ordered an omelet with cheese and toast. Service was prompt, the waitress helpful and the food was plentiful.
