The Cortile

Offering all day light dining and an extensive repertoire of beverages to take you from day to night, The Cortile’s sun-lit lounge is the ultimate all-inclusive venue. Just footsteps away from Sydney’s iconic harbour vista, settle in amongst The Cortile’s soaring atrium and sandstone arcades for a gourmet breakfast offering and all day light dining options set to tantalise your tastebuds. Transformative in essence, by day the lounge is a historic haven in which to host business meets or catch up with friends over rich brews of Vittoria Coffee. By night, bask in the magnificent ambience of this 1851 heritage-listed gem as you end a long working day scouring the extensive cocktail menu which currently features our newly launched premium wine menu, served by the glass thanks to state-of-the-art Coravin extraction techniques.

Exclusive to The Cortile Head of Pastry, Simon Veauvy transforms traditional High Tea and High Coffee into a luxurious ritual for Sydney-siders and international guests alike. This winter, we invite you to experience the all new High Tea rich with winter flavour as Simon Veauvy plays with spice fruits, caramels and chocolates to create sweet and savoury delicacies designed to pair with herbal teas from the Ronnefeldt tea library. If High Tea is a celebration of spiced seasonal fruits and fluffy pastries, High Coffee is its definitively darker counterpart offering rich blends of caffeinated treats with aromas of dark chocolate and classic espresso martinis.

If time is of the essence, be sure to visit our latest addition, Nourished by The Cortile. A pop-up coffee cart filled with gourmet bites, healthful delicacies as well as single origin Vittoria Coffee to take with you on your day's journey.

The perfect beginning or end to your day, step into a world of wonderment as you recline in The Cortile’s iconic lounge.
