A hearty lunch in a courtyard shaded from the sun by giant cream umbrellas--ah, heaven. With a great location in the heart of The Rocks, this restaurant also has an extensive indoor seating area, so it's a perfect place to take a break from all that sightseeing. The breakfast specials (A$7.90/U.S.$5.55) are very popular with guests from surrounding hotels, while at lunchtime it's always bustling with tourists and local office workers. Lunchtime blackboard specials cost A$10 (U.S. $7). More regular fare includes the disappointing Ploughman's Lunch (why spoil a traditional English meal of bread, cheese, and pickles by limiting the bread and adding unappealing vegetables and salad?), the better chicken and leek pies, and pasta and noodle dishes. Filling Turkish bread sandwiches cost between A$6.90 and $8.20 (U.S.$4.85 and $5.75). The courtyard is heated in winter, making it quite cozy.
