Cafe Sydney offers an amazing view of the harbor, bridge and opera house. We were seated inside but outside is great too and they have heaters and blankets if it’s winter. The noise level inside is intense. Lots of large groups and families celebrating. But...More

We enjoyed a pre-show dinner at dusk, and enjoyed the killer views of Sydney harbor, bridge, and city lights. Service was excellent, and the kitchen accommodated our special dietary needs with no problem. Great atmosphere for a special experience.

Called in for coffee on a busy Saturday night. Very popular. Not a lot of inside seating, but more seats outside. In spite of the crowd the coffee came quickly. There were some delicious looking eats on offer.

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
