Recently revealing its Brooklyn-inspired renovation, this cool and contemporary cafe offers a succinct menu of fresh and tasty offerings from braised-pork sliders to salmon gravlax with fennel salad. They pride themselves on the highest standard in coffee, from cold brewed to single origin espresso - to be enjoyed at a picturesque window seat or to-go when you're on the run.

“Great food & atmosphere”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Off the beaten track and so worth hunting to find this little gem. We were having a girls weekend and didn't want to suffer through throngs of tourists from the docked cruise ship so this place was perfect. Good coffee, if a little weak. Great food. I ordered poached eggs on toast but the toast is a little too crusty when you're trying to cut through it. Still delicious.

“A good place for lunch”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I ate here twice at lunchtime during a stay in Sydney. We found the food good and reasonable enough for Sydney. Free WiFi was an added bonus.

“average overpriced food, with attitude!”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

The coffee here is quite good. Food is ok but is sooo expensive! The guy who served me, who I think is the owner, was quite rude and dismissive. I asked if I could have my sandwich fresh instead of toasted to which he replied abruptly, "they all come toasted, thats how we serve them". If you're starving check it out, otherwise don't bother.

“Unique breakfast!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Almost missed locating the place as it is hidden from the main street but glad we found it at the end!

Very unique options for a breakfast and quite delicious indeed! Our drink portion was small though. Highly recommended if you make a visit to the Rocks!
