Guests please note: From Monday, October 23 until Friday October 27 Ripples Café will be undergoing some modifications. A Pop-up coffee bar and café with alfresco seating will operate under the glass awning stretching in front of Ripples and the Waterside Room. This interim café will have a full menu available for the 5 days. 


Ripples Café will return to normal operations from Saturday 28/10

When it’s time for a break, take a seat by the water and watch the world go by.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy a long lunch or a quick snack, we have a range of waterfront dining options catering for every taste and budget.

Settle in and treat yourself to our family friendly Ripples Café, enjoy a quick coffee, a delicious delight or healthy snack from The Coffee Kiosk or pack your own lunch and picnic at our tables on the museum’s Waterfront Boardwalk overlooking Darling Harbour.
