5 stars to this little street cafe in The Rocks.
The owner went out of his way to help re-arrange the furniture to cater for a pram/high chair ect. Also took time to engage with us and showed genuine warmth for his customers.
The Playfair Cafe in Sydney was only a short stroll from our 5 Star Hotel The Shangri-La.
Every morning for the 6 nights we stayed in Sydney we had breakfast at The Playfair Cafe.
The Bacon and egg rolls were superb.
We enjoyed breakfast here twice on this pedestrian-only side street in the heart of the Rocks neighborhood. Be prepared for a big serving if you order muesli, yogurt and fruit. Another bonus: there's lots of outdoor seating on Playfair's terrace.

We had just visited the Museum of Contemporary Art and were starving. We knew that everything in the Rocks and the surrounding area would be expensive, but based on so many positive reviews we decided to give Playfair Café a shot.

The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
