It’s with great pleasure that we announce Cafe Sydney is re-opening on Thursday 25th June in time for what happens to be our 21st birthday.
We have embraced the time at home, cooking with our families and enjoying a slower pace. However, it is with much excitement that we return to the Cafe Sydney dining room where we are busily preparing to welcome you back, our much-loved guests.
Your wellness is our top priority and we are committed to providing a safe environment for our guests to relax, dine, unwind and enjoy our warm hospitality. As such we have implemented a Covid-19 house policy.
We are extremely fortunate with our gorgeous, spacious restaurant, which is the perfect location for social distance dining. We eagerly await the energy that our guests and team bring, over a buzzing lunch or dinner in our harbour side home.
As we celebrate our 21st birthday, we would like to extend a big heartfelt thank you for your support and care over not just the past few months, but for the many years that we have sat atop of Customs House. We are eagerly counting down the days until we welcome you to Cafe Sydney.
