We called into this unpretensious "traditional" cafe called The International Diethnes Cake Shop for a quick morning coffee and were amazed at the array of delicious cakes and pastries including a wide range of baklava and other Greek concoctions. The coffee, too, was very good...More

Had two different types of cakes. One with cream and one without. Both were dreadful. Dry and this was covered up with copious of high fructose sugar syrup. Waste and abuse of ingredients.Highly disappointed and will never patronise.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
