If you want lamingtons with a difference, this is the place! The combination of cake, chocolate, coconut, jam and ricotta is unbelievable and needs to be tried to understand what I amongst others rave about. There are also lots of other great goodies and the shop is always busy, you need to get there early to ensure you don't miss... More

This wonderful little cafe never disappoints! Delicious food, great coffee, love it all. The raspberry and chocolate cake was perfect for a birthday treat. So nice to visit such a friendly Cafe with great food, lovely staff and no loud music to spoil the atmosphere.

Had heard a lot of good reports so decided to try it out. Despite a crowd the coffee was promptly made and delivered. The sandwich was also quickly delivered and tasty. There were also newspapers to read which I always appreciate

Read a lot of good reviews about this bakery and finally managed a visit. Tried a few baked goods and coffee. At 8am there was a very good selection to choose from. The croissants were flaky and crispy. Almond croissant could be a bit sweeter with the almond paste inside. Also tried the apple fine tart and raspberry tart. I... More

Good food at reasonable price and gives you a feel of eating with locals. Good vibe. I'd never eaten a lamington till at this shop - wow! I'm hooked.

The lamingtons were crazily fantastic almost like a mixture of cake and custard and fudge. The genius who thought of soaking sponge in pannacotta should get a medal. Best lamington ever!

Everything is perfection, from the friendly team to eggs and soldiers with custom knitted hats to keep them warm, delicious cakes and hearty luxe pies and salads. I love Flour and Stone because they never ever crimp on ingredients. Everything is always and consistently the best produce. Yummy factor 10 out of 10!

Who said you can't have cake for breakfast!?! You'd be crazy not to here with the variety that they have on offer. Very small and cozy, but can't be beaten.

Fantastic savoury and sweet treats. Coffee superb. Service friendly and fast. We filled our bellies and bought some treats for home too. Small number of seats so don't all go at once.

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.
