We went to this cafe for a late lunch. The food was good. Service was quick and friendly. Tables were set outside and we enjoyed the nice weather.

Mushroom Omelette and Burger were served in a quiet back area. Clean with great service. We had to pay at the till and not our waiter. Prices were on the high side.

Pleasant stop for breakfast! Not the most enticing menu and not the cheapest....coffee was great and the best food is the baked delights!

We stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It's one of the first cafes you come to as you enter The Rocks from George Street. We sat in the outdoor area which was stinking hot. The heat and barrage of flies was extremely unpleasant. The food was very average, one of the poorest attempts at a big breakfast I've... More

Went here for a coffee and to read my novel after a long day of walking around Sydney. Was really let down by poor service. Asked for a medium sized coffee instead was given a small as it appeared the cafe only does large and small sizes. I was quietly enjoying reading my book after finishing my coffee I hear... More

Ate lunch on a Sunday. Restaurant was at near full capacity. Service was a bit slow but the food was decent. Chicken schnitzel sandwich with fries was tasty, as was the prawn and avocado salad. Pancakes with ice cream and maple syrup looked good. Indoor and outdoor seating available, but like any cafe it feels a little cramped. Would have... More

We should have twigged when we went here for breakfast and were misled when told their pineapple juice was freshly made. It was clearly from a bottle. Poached eggs were not just runny (which I like) but when the egg white is also both runny and still clear it was clearly not cooked. Waited forever for the bill and when... More

Like a lot of places at the Rocks it caters for the passing tourists. Service was incredibly slow. I ordered sausage and scrambled egg. Sausage was deep fried and tasted vile. My wife ordered bagel and avocado, no avocado left so she was presented with a pathetic supermarket value bagel and a tiny plastic carton of jam. Expensive and poor

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
