Their service is excellent and breakfast was plentiful with the addition of a few sides. Try the brie and caramelised onion omelette with chorizo on the side. Delicious.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for breakfast, and what a great tip it was! We ended up eating here every day because the food was outstanding, the menu varied and interesting. My favorite was avocado toast with shrimp, roasted corn, topped with a poached egg....More

A perfect little cafe with a cute entrance from the flower shop. Fabulous food! The best French toast I’ve ever had. Lamb was divine too. The coffee is great, almost Melbourne standard (yes, I’m a Melbournian). The ambience is perfect and the servers are very...More

Breakfast is my favourite meal! I was in town for work and both mornings I ate at Bowery Lane. I wish I was staying longer so I could sample all the options on the menu. Located on a mezzanine level above a florist the atmosphere...More

My wife and I dropped in here for breakfast during a weekend in Sydney. Service and food was excellent, with the baked eggs a favourite. Nice fresh juices and our first great coffee in Sydney. Great job!

Coffee was ok but in a city of great coffee that means terrible. Service was friendly but food was very poor. Nothing special or high quality about it at all. Decor is impressive but sadly all style no substance

Popped in for a quick lunch. Seated with no problems, staff attentive but unobtrusive, food fast and tasty.

Slow, inattentive "service" that makes me think they're growing, roasting & grinding the coffee beans. Always slow whether lunching or just having coffee - I only go because it is convenient & big.

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
