I was just walking around for a nice spot with good wifi and came across Bahista. Was super grateful for the smiles and friendly service after coming across some not-so-friendly cafes. Had the poached eggs with smoked salmon and it was super satisfying. Would definitely...More

I'm a regular here on a daily basis, and there is many reasons for this. The service from staff is exceptional, always with a smile and a friendly greeting. The coffee and food is some of the best you will find in the CBD. I...More

Terrible service + terrible bacon & egg roll. I will never be going back to this cafe. Stay away - you have been warned.

They offer a good range of brunch options. I opted for the "Eggs any Way" with a side of bacon, toast and a coffee - this came to $21.90. The food was tasty and the service was friendly and efficient.

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

Bahista Cafe 321 Espresso Cafe with casual dining. Fabulous indoor/outdoor seating with uninterrupted views of Hyde Park. Open from 6.30Am till 4.15Pm Mon - Fri. Open 7.30 till 1.30 Sat and Sun Whether you want to pop in for coffee, milk shakes or a country big breakfast or perhaps Barramundi for lunch we have a menu item that I'm sure will please you.
