My wife kept saying she wanted to go back to this place and so I went with her this time. I'm glad i did.Its in a quiet place just by the "Bridge" We can recommend a pot of tea for two and some warm home made scones/jam/cream. Delicious. Will we be back for more? Too right we will.

Go on a weekend, stroll the lovely market and then pop into this charming restaurant for delightful scones, straight from the oven. A welcome respite from a day of touring.

Just finished scones and tea - they taste fantastic! There isn't much of a view as such from the back courtyard, but for me the food was the star of the show. They were freshly baked in minutes - and the smell here is lovely as a result!

what a lovely way to spend an arvo. at the Rocks under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, we had devonshire cream tea whilst the market was in full swing. choice of tea, bread type and jam, we sat outside though could have gone upstairs or garden. superb.
Only negative was having to queue up to order and having to make the choice for your companions
This is a rare Sydney gem

A gem in an unexpected location. This shop is right near the Rocks, so only minutes away from Circular Quay. Staff are super friendly and the scones are amazing. A friend and I arrived there right on opening one morning and enjoyed scones fresh from the oven, it was delightful! They have a range of jams (pear and vanilla is a winner, but it's hard to pick a favourite) and different scone variations as well. Great range of teas, complemented by the adorable knitted scones and tea cosies decorating the place. It caters to all ages - I loved the fact that I felt at home in there, but so too did a range of pensioners.
