Hard to leave a positive review here. We ordered milkshakes which were grossly sweet and synthetic with neon syrup in them. We also ordered bagels and cream
Cheese to be told they had run out by 11am. My ice coffee was also full of
Sugar and cream rather than just being iced liked the menu suggested. Cheaper than other places but for a reason :(

Located in a nice quiet little ally in the Rocks, this little cafe is quite local and cozy. The boss is very friendly and their egg benedict is amazing!

Playfair Cafe is largely popular among the other food establishments along the street. Maybe because the prices were lower. Ordered a chicken burger which tasted unique, carrying a curry-like sauce. But the chicken is tough. The latte tasted bold and good.

There are no table or order numbers, so the cafe is a bit disorganized on bringing out food, I could see them ask about 4 tables if some food was for them. We had a breakfast roll and smashed avocado on rye and some milkshakes. All the food was good, pretty good value, both were under #10. Place just needs some better organization!

We really enjoyed the quality and cost of their sandwiches and long black coffees. The service was also great...
