If you're staying at the Sir Stamford on Macquarie Street walk around the corner to the Settlement on Quay for breakfast. 10 times as good for half the price.

Nice place to have breakfast or cup of coffee. Cross between Starbucks take away and small full service cafe. Service very good. Only open on weekdays from 7:00 until around 4::00 -5:00. Open on Friday evenings but maybe for drinks only. Seating inside and out....More

Just a block back from Circular Quay but with good service, a good menu and plenty of seats inside and out, I like this place because the food is good, price reasonable and it’s not so crazy busy as the places on the waterfront.

Needed a quiet moment to tend to emails and stopped by Settlement on Quay. Had a lovely iced coffee (although, it was a bit pricey at $7). Nice and quiet during mid-afternoon.

Good if you're short on time, food is always good and they are happy to do separate billing if you're with a group.

Have been here many times, the service is always excellent, and the food and coffee is consistently good quality. I wouldn't say it's the best ever, but exactly what you'd expect from a good cafe.

Well located at Circular Quay, handy for transport by station, ferry terminal and buses. Convenient for city meetings, relatively standard menu for breakfast but consistent

We met for lunch here. We were greeted straight away with a friendly smile. We enjoyed our meals which were efficiently served and well presented. The atmosphere was calm and we were able to talk easily As we ate

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
