Terrible coffee, asked for a takeaway extra hot and at best it was luke warm. Asked for it to be redone and they refused. Had to microwave for 30 seconds back at the office to make it semi hot.

This small cafe does a brisk trade near Town Hall Station. The service is efficient and you do not have to wait very long for a good soy, decaf cap.

Good coffee, service was friendly an fast. A little cafe that offered food, cakes and coffee. Being a lover of a strong bold coffee, I found that my piccolo on this occasion was quite weak and bland. Was nothing special. I would return and give...More

The place is slightly small & crowded with people. They serve nice coffee & breakfast. The raspberry brownies is a must item.

I’m from Tassie but every time I come to Sydney, I always come for many coffees here and I’ve never had a bad one. Some of the best coffee I’ve had and the jam donut was legit 👌

Have been coming to workshop (town hall) for several years now. Coffee is always great with top variety of single origins. The shop must have changed hands, staff are daily baffled as to what a single origin (SO) is and if it can be ordered....More

A nice find whilst waiting to undertake business. Service was really good as was the coffee and green tea. Also consumed a delicious Ginger Slice.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
