Description: The rocks cafe The Rocks Cafe is one of The Rocks' favourite icons. It offers a truly European dining experience just opposite the MCA on George Street. The Cafe spans two floors and combines the best of modern Australian architecture with a traditional bohemian feel that adds genuine warmth which is echoed by the friendly staff. The Cafe is open seven days a week from 8am to late at night so you can enjoy the breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menus are updated regularly and are complimented by the daily specials where our Chief Chef exercises his flair. Just around the corner from Circular Quay it's very central to the CBD and the financial district for lunch or after work dinner with friends or colleagues. The Rocks Cafe is the perfect for an intimate meal or large corporate bookings can be hosted upstairs and made private if required. Our wine list features wine from the best Australian wine producing regions and our staff are fully trained to help you in any way

We stopped in here after a walk through The Rocks and up onto the pylon lookout on the harbour bridge. It was a cool morning so we elected to sit upstairs and we were ushered up a tiny staircase at the back up to a lovely second story. The service, coffee and the hot chocolate were great. This place has some of the best cakes and cheesecakes! I recommend the blueberry cheesecake, but a slice is huge and could be shared between 2, if not 3 people. My firmed had the lemon meringue pie and the meringue on the top was a good 10cm high!

Went for breakfast:

Mushrooms on Toast was fantastic.
Pancakes could be better

Service was attentive, polite, and accurate

A good looking restaurant with a good service. The choice of meals is great specially if you want to taste a crocodile burger or kangaroo burger while you are in Australia.
But finally I think it is a little bit too pricy for the small portions that are served.
I felt a little bit disappointed at the end ...

Haven't been to the Rocks Cafe for an early dinner for some time so didn't know what to expect. It still has great meals we had the specials - shepherds pie and the spicy meatballs and they were both delicious. The service was good and customers were coming and going. The cocktails looked good and the deserts as always were very rich and indulgent. If you can fit one in do. The price was reasonable and we only had a short walk to Vivid.

Everything was excellent. Our favorite breakfast spot. Sit upstairs and enjoy a latte and homemade croissant.
