Offer board: offering coffee and roll for $8.70, then charge you over $10. Girl trying to do her best but a male person in charge (store manager?) shows a rude attitude when confronted. It happens 9 July 18 just before 12 noon. Certainly I won't...More

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

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
