The decor is rustic and clean, and the entry is through a florist which adds a special element. Unfortunately this strong start is let down by the food and service. We had a variety of meals and sides to share (cheeseburger, fish of the day,...More

This was a very good place for breakfast. Great menu, coffee, and servers were very friendly. Bookings (aka Reservations), are recommended but not mandatory

We found this place through a top 14 breakfasts in the cbd list. Was one of a small handful that was open on a Sunday. Service wasn't bad but I wouldn't say it was amazing. The menu only had a few options but what we...More

I was a. It surprised that Bowery Lane was such a modern cafe. But it was such a great place to go for breakfast. Friendly attentive staff, fast service and excellent coffee and breakfast. I'll definitely be going back when I'm next in Sydney.

WOW! I spent 3 weeks travelling up the east coast and I have to say this was the best breakfast I had. Healthy portions / excellent food / fantastic service! Thank you for making one of my last meals in Australia a memorable one!

All staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food was exceptional at very reasonable price. (Similar price to our local sailing club bistro) Wine and beer very reasonable. The booths were great to sit at. Will be returning to this eatery without doubt.

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
