Nice little cafe with quick friendly service. I had the pepper steak pie with garden salad, opting out of the hot chips. Loved the chunky pieces of beef. And the salad serving was more than generous, almost a paddockful. I think I'll be back again to sample the delicious-looking sweets.

Along George Street, great pies, tarts. "Homemade" stuff n the middle of the city. Worth trying if you're at The Rocks or Harbour area.

I just stopped by here for a coffee and cupcake. It cost me over $13 which is exorbitant! The soy latte was too strong so I didn't finish it and they charged $7 for a kids cupcake with icing sugar and imitation strawberry syrup squirted on the plate.(Not raspberry coulis as I initially thought.) I was dumbfounded.

Good breakfast or lunch on the terrace out back, on Nurse's walk. Both the savory open melts as the sweet vanilla slice are recomendable

This place is disgustingly overpriced for what you get. They stuffed up our order twice and when our food came out it was very average. I could have easily cooked the food far better myself at home. Do not go here!!!!

Save your time and money and keep walking on past this cafe, where the food is over priced, under average and the staff are quite frankly, rude. My boyfriend and I had been wanting to try out this place for a while as from the outside the homemade cakes and pastries look delish. We ordered two sausage rolls, a drink... More

I had limited time to have breakfast, and chanced upon this place. It was a good choice. I had the full breakfast and it came out surprisingly fast and was filling and really tasty. The coffee was great too. Loved the service. In fact I was so impressed I broke with traditional and decided to leave a tip as well.... More

The food on the menu was so expensive and I agree that you can really get something much better on other places than this cafe for the high price they set. The staff isn't friendly either once you have any problem with the food. I don't recommend.

Most pies are around $20 with some ordinary hot chips and small basic salad. Homemade pie but mostly pastry. Big menu with lots of choice but mostly what I saw coming out looked like cafe food from the 80's. We've eaten in the Rocks a few times recently, and the cafes along the main George St area or the pubs... More

Always a good stop off for lunch or a quick snack. Pies and pasties to die for, and the cakes out of this world. The coffee is average, but you don't go here for anything but the food.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
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.
