Worst cup cake I have ever seen. Couldn't even get my fork through it. Couldn't eat it. Horrible. $8 for I cup cake. Told them it was stale and they said it was fresh and made that morning, total rip off.

Do yourself a big favour and keep right on walking past. It is hilariously expensive. The service is very poor. It is so bad we went for breakfast over near the Opera House, which itself is very expensive, but significantly cheaper than this hole in the wall, and of significantly better quality.

Looking for a take away for a picnic we stopped in and found a nice selection of Turkish rolls or in the US "po-boys or hoagies" along with some great homemade soup(pumpkin that day) and salads. Pleasant waitstaff. Can also satisfy a sweet tooth if necessary. You can dine in or sit out also.came back a second time!

I agree with a previous poster, what a rip off. Ordered a meat pie, they look good in the window but they are not fresh. My wife ordered a coffee and cookie. The cookie was about the size of the area between your thumb and your index finder, for $6!!!! Bill was over $40 for the worst meal we had... More

Total rip off $100 for 4 toasties. Rude staff. When one toastie didn't arrive we had to chase it up 5 times. Never received an apology in all that time and when I mentioned that to the 'manager' he blamed us for it!?! Go figure! Sadly those who are visiting this eaterie will stumble across it while they are out... More

I could not agree more with previous reviews.This ordinary café charges are exorbitant. My wife and I had afternoon coffee today-one piece of apple strudel,one Florentine bisquit and two coffees for 35 dollars. Thank you BAKERS OVEN,but you will not see us again.

I came here with my wife on a saturday morning, as we were staying in the city and wanted a nice cooked breakfast. The prices on the menu caused us to go with something simple. I eat breakfast alot in the city and these were way above the norm. There was nothing particularly poor with the food, but it was... More

$63 for 3 coffees and 4 biscuits!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS. A big shock when the bill came...a menu was not presented at our table. Our mistake...but hopefully you won't make the same error of judgement!

Stopped here for a quick meal - I had quiche, salad and chips and my husband had a meat pie and chips. Nothing special.

Popped in here for a couple of coffees. Staff were very friendly. Had a piece of shortbread with my coffee which was $9.50 which I thought was very expensive. Beware as none of the cakes in the window have prices on! Won't be returning.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
