Coming from the ferry terminal, Doyle’s several establishments seem the obvious choice for a meal. But on the warm March Saturday we visited, they were packed. The Tea Garden Cafe also faces the water, but is to the right of the terminal, next to the...More

We went twice. Took a swim, showered and then had a delicious lunch. Bliss. Good food, quiet atmosphere, and a library right next door if you need to wait for your return trip to Sydney.

Had a great time here for my birthday with friends. We purchased a special deal so the value was fantastic. Food & view were both gorgeous. Would highly recommend.

We had tea and scones at the Tea Gardens (next door to the Library). The scones were nice but a bit spongy, I think they had been warmed in the microwave. The tea was fresh leaf and strong.

Not accepting cards and having a private ATM inside the cafe that charges customers to take out cash is soo dodgy. Never seen this anywhere else in Sydney. Just get card facilities like everyone else does! Food was only average which added to the negative...More

Great place to have breakfast or brunch on a weekend. Get here early as the place fills quickly. Super views over Sydney Harbour.

Great location across the road from Watsons Bay Sea Bath. A short walk past Robertson Park, to the right as you come off the wharf. Next door to Watsons Bay Library. Friendly service with outdoor tables. Excellent Fresh Fruit Salad with Yoghurt and Honey.

I'm not sure how you edit your review - maybe try the help section? (it's under the three dots on the menu) The Teagardens Café has been there for a while and it's lovely. I certainly recommend it.
