    Cute little restaurant, opposite Bar H - in Surry Hills. Great Pho and chicken rice, not BYO anymore as they now have a licence. Great spot for lunch... buzzy, fun, and vibrant!

    Food needs a revamp. Service needs a revamp. Don't ask for a amaretto sour... Great location.
  • Fine Food Store

    Cafes The Rocks, NSW
    What a great place to meet, both for business and pleasure! Situated in a side street in The Rocks, if I hadn't been told about this place, I certainly would have had trouble stumbling across it. Rather busy compared to the other local cafes in the same area for a early week day morning - always a good sign. Friendly staff, great herbal tea (apparently the coffee is fantastic too!) - only shortfall is the toilets located upstairs in a public space and I found the music a little too loud to listen carefully to my guests. Overall, great little spot.

  • The management is the most aggressively rude I've seen in any cafe or restaurant. I've eaten here 4 times for lunch and had a bad experience with them every time, to the point where i walk in hoping they won't be there.

    I don't understand why they act that way. Its with everyone, has nothing to do with the people they are serving, its just an automatic reaction. Its really stressful and I won't go anymore, despite the nice food and convenient location

      I'm sorry to hear you've had the same experience - I wish it were so different!
  • Very cool little cafe/restaurant across from Cottesloe beach. I had a very nice crab linguine, which was a bit small but tasty. They had some old black and white Italian movie running on the wall, which was fun.

      I was so keen to check out their lunch/dinner - at the very least their menu. How great are the wine racks on the wall? Something told me though that they don't take stock taking very seriously! Great spot.
  • I have held two group functions at Botanic Cafe, both were an absolute hit with the guests. Cono and his friendly, funky staff do a fantastic job and I will definitely be back! The food is simple but very good.

      Hey Kiddo, how many people can they fit for event functions, do you know? I went here years ago and love it but a group function is a brilliant idea.
