I walked through the Strand Arcade during my April 2019 business trip to Sydney. It has very elegant and interesting architecture. There are many shops and restaurants.

Nice selection of shops and restuarants in the CBD. The facade is old and interesting so worth a picture by itself.

I love this building which on the outside looks a bit like a building in the The Soho District of NYC but with the vibe inside of England, France or other cities arcades of Europe... Great coffee place.. places to buy tea, a chocolate shop at each end.. you can't and should not avoid.. an Aesop store... and lots and lots more..

If you are looking for something healthy, filling & a great coffee...Pop into the Strand Arcade off Pitt Street Mall in Sydney...
Looks like a little family run business, small tables outside...We loved our lunch.
It is next to the stairs where shoe whiners are, opposite Barber & Antique Jeweller...It may be called Sweet Infinity

To me, The Strand Arcade represents grace and elegance long since lost to the modern commercial marketplace.

With its iron lace balconies, its stained glass windows and its cedar stairs, The Strand Arcade is home to a variety of shops and businesses, most of them up-market and expensive.

The Strand was built between 1866 and 1890, and when it opened it was hailed as the finest shopping arcade in the British Empire.

Two major fires nearly destroyed the arcade but it has been faithfully rebuilt and restored and gained NSW Heritage Registration in 2011.
