Great little place to pop in for a pie or dessert. Lovely vegetarian options, too! Their pie crusts are flaky and delicious! On my first visit to SYD, I actually ate here twice (something I never do when traveling, as I try to eat at different places). But I couldn't resist, as they had such delicious food! Definitely stop in... More

I have popped in here most trips to Sydney but this time felt liked I'd been suckered! The manners from the staff should have been an indicator . Food was average, dry pastries and lukewarm tea. I thought the offer of ice cream with the caramel slice a tad odd, but my kids had said yes to that question before... More

What a fantastic location! But the coffee was incredibly overpriced-$5 for a latte!!!! And worst still was $8 for a very dry, and frankly terrible, cherry ripe slice. This is a tourist trap of the worst kind. Obviously this cafe is not trying to get repeat business, just unwary visitors.

Lunchtime. The Rocks. New Years Eve. This combination could bode a lunchtime disaster. However, we happened upon the Baker’s Oven Cafe and had a lovely meal. The weather was good, and we were lucky to get a nice table out front. The service was very good, and the food was excellent. We shared a shrimp and avocado salad, which was... More

The name implies good bread and pastry dishes . However this is not the case. Think petrol station food served with less flare at twice the price and you have this place. Disappointing and pricey. Avoid.

The prices are outrageous, $9 for a sliver of caramel slice which was only standard quality. Vanilla slice was slightly larger but same price. Coffee nothing to get excited about,had better from McDonald's.service very ordinary. Find somewhere else that wants to give you service, good food and value.

We sat down and were given menus pretty much right away, but it took ages for someone to take our order. The staff were pleasant enough, but we never got the water we ordered, and my husband's beer beer glass was piping hot (not much thought involved). The salads were generously sized, but pricey. Probably would not go again.

Huge range of bakery items to choose from both sweet and savoury. Also had a range of drinks, coffees, etc. You could also choose from a range of sandwiches, etc. Good, attentive service and a choice of seating. Just be prepared for Sydney Rocks prices.

We placed our uncomplicated order with the waitress. Order was incorrect when it arrived & we very politely advised the waitress of this. She was openly hostile & argued that this was what we ordered, claiming that she had asked us twice to confirm the order (she had not). We responded that we were confident that we knew what we...

Agree with the majority of reviews on this place. For a $19.00 pie and salad I was expecting to be able to eat it at least. The salad had two tomato heads in it, a hair on my plate, a clearly home made pie that failed miserably, pretty much dog food taste and texture filling. They did manage to make... More
