This is a little cosy and well decorated caffe very well located in Darlinghurst. Their service is below average though. My order came wrong, food was cold and I had to cancel two capuccinos because they were simply not prepared. There is room for improvement.

Upstairs has loads of room so don't be deceived by the ground floor. Service excellent. Menu fantastic and food was fabulous. Probably the best milkshakes in Sydney. My daughter is very specific about milkshakes and is known to leave them. So great place to eat....More

A friend and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Philosophy Cafe. I would highly recommend the Halloumi Vege Wrap and Tropical Juice, and I know that my friend absolutely loved her Chicken Burger. Lovely staff and everything came very fast, even though it was busy!

I first stumbled into this cafe when it first opened about September-October 2016. I had a job down the road from it. It's been my favourite cafe ever since. Every time I go there everything is spot on. It's now July 2017. Looks nice and...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
