Whilst all the food here is great it is the deserts that are a real standout. The choice is really good and every one is great. Cocktails here are also great and the staff are always lovely and friendly too

Fresh produce, cooked well with helpful staff. Request slightly off menu - no problem. Right in the middle of King St Newtown so convenient for all as a good meet up point with bonus people watching vista from open frontage.

We've been going in this cafe for almost 15 years but since the place was renovated and change management we stop patronising. The food was pricy and the service was very poor. If you are around Newtown area you have variety of restaurant to choose from anyway.

This is a well situated restaurant just opposite Mona Vale beach in Sydney. It is quite new and the staff were very friendly when we visited for dinner. Unfortunately the food for us on the night was very disappointing as it was so bland. One of us had the gnocchi which was overcooked and ended up a gluggy mess on... More

King st is full of Thai restaurants and cheap takeaway, so to find something with a little more quality is a relief. The atmosphere is nice with the open plan and the coffee is ok.

Cinque is a nice little restaurant in Newtown with nice food. The coffee is to be avoided.

The food was so revolting I hesitate to give it one star. The lingune was very undercooked. It was like half the Indian Ocean had jumped into my plate. Badly, badly cooked. Was too scared to even try desert. That really says something.

Nice little spot for some good coffee/dessert, or a quick pasta. Good people watching, too!
