Convenient location close to circular quay, nice surroundings and pleasant service and fast. Food was well presented, hot and delicious. Proportions were not large but sufficient and good value. A main course with a glass of wine for $29. Muted surroundings and tables were not...More

Either inside for a private quiet conversation, or in the courtyard enjoying the sculptures, the space, and the passers-by, this is a good place for lunch. The food is varied, interesting and fresh, and the service attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Fresh lime...More

The MOS was a bit slow to start for breakfast and staff seemed intent on being a little too professionally pleasant. The setting - underneath the museum - has potential but they do not seem to have made much of it. It was a bit...More

Great breakfast cafe, also good modern Australian specials for lunch and dinner, excellent coffee and wine list. Considering the central location (near Circular Quay opposite the Intercontinental Hotel) this is the place for moderately priced food, served outside or inside before or after a visit...More

Excellent for a vegetarian. Very sweet and courteous staff. Good sit out area. Reasonably priced. Coffee isn't too great when compared to other cafes.

Stopped by the Museum of Sydney Cafe a couple of times during a recent stay. Very good coffee! Service was reasonable as were the prices. Its well located and if you are visiting the Museum a good place to take a coffee break.

We always stop by the Museum of Sydney on our return visits to Australia and the city, more for its shop but also for its cafe and its coffee. We have eaten in the past and breakfast can be pleasant. This time it was coffee...More

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
