I was killing time on a Sunday when I shopped around in the Dymocks bookshop. Discovered this nice little cafe and had lunch there. Almost like having a nice lunch in a library - no blaring music noise! Seems to be popular with other patrons...More

Love the ambience. It's cozy and conveniently located at the top floor of Dymocks bookstore. The coffee is great and the food is so, so, sooo delicious. I highly recommend the omelette - it's out of this world. Go early or it'll be difficult to...More

we often go the Dymocks for a coffee but also lunch the servings are quite large which means you can split the meal. The staff are little hit and miss but the coffee and food is always enjoyable

This cafe is located in the Dymocks bookstore...a 3 level bookstore with every imaginable book for sale. Food and coffee are served at the cafe and you can read a book whilst sitting there. I can only comment on the coffee, it was very good....More

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
