Pablo & Rusty's is a local haunt for many a corporate worker in the CBD. Located in the courtyard of the ANZ building, the place is always busy and the tables are very close together. Lots of staff who are pretty friendly and decent food/coffee.

Popped in solo for early breakfast. Fascinating menu, nothing as simple as eggs and toast. I enjoyed the egg salad and smoky bacon sandwich on bun...who would have thought! And the sticky chai was very tasty as well. Couldn’t resist a chocolate croissant on the...More

My office used to be just next door to this place... The staff are always nice and the coffee is great... Good selection of muffins and sweets at the counter and the meals are pretty good... Healthy for the most part and substantial.

Bit disappointed that there was no ice-cream in takeaway my iced coffee this morning. I know it's a bratty addition, but I visited specifically to have it as another reviewer said they did it (and has a picture up).More

Our first meal on our return to Sydney meant popping in to one of our old favourites. Great coffee and creative, well prepared and tasty food for brunch or lunch. Service was also very friendly and efficient.

Let’s start with coffee. The menu in that regard was extensive and the coffee was good. Looking for some breakfast though and the menu was quite niche and missing some basics.

The decor was bright and attractive. The service was very good. The staff were friendly. The coffee was high quality and the breakfasts were very different, quite health conscious and delicious. This was also a great place for people watching.

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
