Often wondered what this place would be like passing over the bridge, so we gave it a shot. Got a table in the sun outside and got service right away. We ordered Eggs florientine for the wife, Baked beans for Dad and french toast and berry pancake for the kids. The waitresses quick, polite and very smiling. Always a bonus.
After hardly any wait the coffees and juices arrived and the breakkie not long after. Wowzers what sizes. I knew just looking at them that I had to finish off the kids ones if I had room. Both me and my wifes meals were fantastic and the kids were raving about theirs, which i got to finish off, and had to agree with. What a treat.The prices are low and the quality is high.
Should have tried this place long ago. We will be back again
for sure. One thing though. You have to be early coz this place fills up fast, as we noticed, when standing by the rail after the breakfast feeding the fish and the alligator?
Friends have offen said to stop by the Sitting Duck Cafe for breakfast,No wait for my coffee,was great, had a nice chat to the waitress,I had the Berry pancakes with everything on the side, not a prob,no wait,was yummy. My friend had the Eggs benidict with bacon,I ate some of his too,was excellent! will be back again. Great place to walk off breakfast,nice views all around.
Dropped into the Cafe today. My coffee was not great- more good. I used to go often for lunch a few years ago, when it was great. As everyone says, the location is wonderful. Pity the cafe is looking so tired….
Went to sitting duck for breakfast with my fellow friends. Service was ok, ordered the”home made”baked beans. Arrived in bowl, not home made but out of tin with specks of bacon. Not satisfying at all and expensive. This place use to be really good, but reading other comments it has certainly gone backwards.
Shocking staff and service – everything is a problem and you can stand directly in front of them and they will carry on talking between themselves – attitude correction required
Food OK, but if I have to have an argument when ordering, rather go elsewhere
This cafe is in a lovely location by the marina with tables inside and out. I’d just done the Harbour Bridge Climb and this looked like a nice place to relax. Alas location is not everything.
I had to queue for over 20 minutes and then it took 15 minutes for our drinks to come. I had wanted food but found the menu too pricey with very little suitable for vegetarians. The staff seemed pleasant enough but the process for ordering clearly lacked any flow.
My raspberry milkshake was ok but my husband’s flat white was small, luke warm and lacked flavour. Very disappointing. Despite the nice location, I doubt very much I will return here. I’d rather go to Starbucks – and that’s saying something!
I went to Sitting Duck Cafe a few days ago for lunch. The waiter and waitress were both friendly and efficient. The selection on the menu was quite good and covers a variety. I had a mochaccino and squid & crab salad. The mochaccino was a bit disappointing as it tasted like there was something else in the drink, something that shouldn’t have been there but I couldn’t tell what it was. The mix in the squid and crab salad was great although the green was served warm and I was a bit surprised. I thought that the food and drink was average so given its price, I would probably try somewhere else next time.
Love the location but the food rating has dropped over time. Service is lousy and the decor can do with some attention.
Been there lately – nothing much has changed since
arrived here great setting but service terrible Had to wait 20 minutes for a cup of tea . put our orders in and asked for eggs Benedict with sauce on the side and waited and waited Sauce arrived all over the egg. Bacon was tough and wholly disappointing and very expensive for the meal.
This venue must get a lot of tourists so the food and service really will give a bad impression on tourists If I could give less than 1 star I would

Had a particularly bad experience – hopefully a one off. The food was exceptionally average and it took an hour for lunch to arrive. Average café food would be OK at café prices – but $20 mains (seafood) were dry, over-cooked and not what we’d expect for the price.
I had the Caesar Salad with crumbed fish (first mistake instead of chicken. The fish was only just comparable to frozen and out of a box.
