I can recommend this place for breakfast prior to the opening of the NSW Gallery. The menu is varied and also offers the basics. The service and quality of the food is fine. The coffee is good.

My husband's sandwich and chips were good, but my salad was not very flavorful. The kids we were with were not impressed with the relish on the sandwich. I would not go out of my way to eat there again, but for grab and go...More

We had our team offsite here and it was the most lovely setting for it. The team who provided our meals and coffees looked after us really well, with nothing too much trouble and great flexibility on timings. Good food. Good coffee. Lovely views.

We like the location as it's great for the little ones to get out into the park. We lunch recently but the food was quite disappointing. The service started off well but towards the end we had to wave our arms around to get attention....More

The service was terrible. Waited over an hour for our food with the children waiting also only to be told they were busy. The waiter was short and snappy when asked to follow up the kids meals. Will not be back.

Guys, you are dangerously understaffed for a Sunday. Waiting 20 minutes just to put in an order is a tad ridiculous and then about 50 minutes for food from the time we sat down for food to come out. Given that it is 7 bucks...More

Had lunch here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Not very busy while we were there. Waitress poured table water, we were discussing which drink we would order and the waitress just walked off! She returned about 10 mins later to take our food order. Food...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
