The first in what I hope will be a regular - if occasional - series. Our family has a serious tea drinker in it who loathes tea bags and is therefore on a permanent quest for real tea. Dymocks is a great book store in...More

A friend joined me for lunch today and even though the food was enjoyed by both of us I was amused when my friend made mention of the sullen staff. This cafe has never been known for its friendly, ready to smile staff (from the...More

This café is a good place to kill time. The food (tried an omelet and a lime cake) is good and the café is located in CBD, easy to reach from several hotels such as Hilton. I spent more than 2.5 hours there working. Clearly...More

My husband and I have been here before, so thought we'd try breakfast here. The coffee was hot and a 'proper' flat white too, which is always good when the cafe can do an actual flat white. My husband ordered a ham and cheese toastie,...More

Lovely oasis in the heart of the city. Light, airy cafe overlooking the rest of the store. A welcome break from shopping with the added bonus of books.

There is a certain nostalgic feel about this cafe tucked into the upper floor of the Dymocks bookstore that I love. So much so that I have frequented this place for many years now. Very good food, comfortable booths, reasonable prices and extremely friendly staff...More

It is simple customer service that if you forget an order and need to be reminded of it then you own up to the mistake.Just a coffee but it is extremely awkward while one person sits there finishing their drink while the other person waits....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
