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

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

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

There are better places in the rocks to get coffee and cake. When our order was taken the waitress asked if we would like cream or ice cream. We decided on the ice cream. Had the lemon tart. Was dry and not as tasty as it looked in the window. Vanilla slice was ok. Ice cream was ok. Coffee was... More

I ordered an open toasted sandwich and when it turned up it was like coles smart price white bread with a slice of Costco cheese, dry tomatoes and Costco ham AND I had to pay $18 dollars for this! I'm embarrassed to even write this to say I went here!! AVOID! Go to McDonalds instead!!!!

My favourite for a quick, light lunch in the Rocks area. Love the rear patio area. Had a lovely corned beef in Turkish bread. Our 2 Chinese students went for spaghetti and were a little overwhelmed by the size but a walk around to the opera house helped their digestion along. However light dinner tonight I think.

Staying at Harbour Rocks Hotel and came across this cafe by accident. Had breakfast on the terrace at the back (through the bakery), excellent food, great coffee and great service. Prices very reasonable especially for the location close to harbour, wished we'd found it sooner! Also took some of their sandwiches for lunch - very tasty!

Avoid. There are better places to grab a flat white that doesn't cost $5 and is served by a surly moody waiter. I worry about the impression this place leaves on all the thousands of tourists this place sees each week just because it's in the rocks.

After a lovely morning wandering around decided to stop at this place . Hadn't been before and certainly enjoyed it. The service was great. Quick and efficient. The backyard courtyard so much quieter than front of house. Take a walk through. Just lovely. Breakfast was served just as we both had asked for, from very efficient staff. Overall very nice....

The Rocks is a pricey place to eat but this cafe serves good food at a reasonable price. Greek salad, vegetarian pasties, spinach quiche, both of the latter served with chips and salad. Filling portions at $19. I used to have Appetito as my regular in The Rocks but their reasonably priced lunchtime special is no more.
