It has become somewhat of a tradition , that when we visit Sydney, we always have lunch here. The service is great, the food fabulous with large portions. The view to die for. We always have the Jimmy Olsen cocktail, a bit pricey, but again now a tradition. It's our 3rd trip to Australia since 2004 and each time we've... More

It's a little on the pricy side but you do get a lot of food. Warning to all the North Americans out there.... it's Australian bacon... not that small stuff you get back home.

For breakfast, lunch, dinner or coffee we found this diner style café/restaurant perfect for our needs whilst spending several days holidaying in Sydney. Meals were so good that we kept going back again and again. From hearty home-style soup to full breakfasts and satisfying dinners, we enjoyed eating at City Extra day after day. The staff were friendly and very... More

The staff was so lovely; they were very helpful, friendly and genuine. It is a little pricey on Sundays due to the surcharge as the staff gets paid penalty rates working on Sundays and Public Holidays but that's fair enough considering this place is open 24 hours a day. Food was good, I had the big breakfast and I demolished... More

We ordered the healthy breakfast which is a new addition. I don't like my toast pre-buttered for me!! very rude. The spinach was at least fresh and not frozen. Quite generous size meal but for $21 I think $14 would have been more appropriate. Very large menu but sadly in need of a renovation to bring it up to standard.... More

I had the lasagna and a cider. The lasagna came with a small salad. The food was good and the cider was cold. If you are sitting outside, this is an outstanding place to people watch. The service was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would come back to this place to try something else.

We make them a regular as they've always had great food, good price and great location. BUT this time they failed badly. It was not busy so not sure why. Our cooked breakfasts were cold, except the hash brown/ Rosti which they forgot and had to cook while we ate. The staff were friendly and the coffee good. As usual... More

For coffee or a beer the setting is great and the staff were pleasant. The food is a little pricy, probably due to the location, and it's about average. The colourful parrots have got stealing the small sugar packets down to a tee, hence the staff try to remove the sugar asap.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
