Cafe at the Gallery, Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney (12 Dec 2016)

Art Gallery Rd, The Domain, Sydney NSW 2000

Scones in the gallery

“The cafe has reopened with a brand-new look and menu. This stunning light-filled space on lower level 1 offers a casual dining experience in a relaxed environment. It’s a perfect stop before or after you enjoy an exhibition. The cafe serves great coffee and sweets, freshly prepared light snacks, sandwiches, salads and a beautiful selection of hot food.”

Looks like the cafe in the gallery has undergone a refurb since I last visited. Plenty of seating still and nice view from the terrace outside. Has the feel of more an upmarket cafeteria now. Scone with cream and jam ($6) caught my eye at the counter as it's hard to find cafes around the CBD that serve scones, especially just a single one. Pretty decent size that's makes it quite filling. A little on the dry side. A bit more cream would have been good. The jam is overly sweet for my liking making it taste a bit cheap. Chai Latte ($3.90) was quite nice with some flavour to be had but I do prefer a stronger flavoured chai. Service seemed friendly. Wasn't a fan of the seating inside which didn't have the right amount of lower back support coverage which became a bit uncomfortable for me after about 15 minutes. The seating outside and near the entrance way looked like it had better support. Found the background music a bit too loud and intrusive when trying to have a meeting with colleagues but for those having a casual chat it'll probably be OK. For food orders brought to your table they use the location devices which is pretty cool.
