Description: Welcome to La Renaissance! We are one of Sydney's oldest family-owned French patisseries, and the first in the Southern Hemisphere to be awarded the prestigious Relais Desserts status with our head chef and co-owner Jean Michel Raynaud. Each morning we serving fresh buttery pastries, hot coffee & tea, juice, savouries and cakes every day. A great place to recharge and relax if you're new to Sydney and exploring Circular Quay and The Rocks, or a favourite for locals. Our best-selling items include almond croissants and the Monet, a white chocolate mousse cake with lychee jelly, raspberries and coconut base. Cult favourite, the ham and cheese croissant, sells out daily as well, with a shredded ham & cheese bechamel inside and on top of the croissant. Baked until crisp but still a little soft inside... we say yes please!

This little gem is one of our favourite finds at the Rocks. Look no further for the most exquisite pastries -- especially the wonderful macarons and tarts -- with a lovely enclosed courtyard setting out the back for a relaxed coffee away from the bustle of the main street. Very highly recommended!

We stumbled on this little patisserie and to our surprise it was fantastic. The cakes were amazing and so were the pies.
The milles feuilles were lovely. We do recommend.

Good standard of french croissants, brioche, pastries, tarts and cakes. Filled baguettes for lunch. The larger cakes are more like mousse desserts than cake, which can be good or bad depending on your personal preference. I particularly love the raspberry and meringue cake....

We called here on a very busy Saturday. The service was excellent and the coffee and pastries were excellent. Others were having lunch snacks and they too looked really good.

Good quality and the service was excellent.
