Good selection of cabinet food. Staff friendly and efficient. Decent coffee. The negatives were very sticky tables and music very loud.

Being early for an appointment close by, we decided to stop for a coffee. The decor was interesting including the very 70's wallpaper. The staff were friendly & personable. Sadly our coffee took nearly 30mins to get to our table. This meant that we had to leave quickly to then make our appointment on time. The meals that were presented... More

Ok so it might have been that it was a rainy day and the coziness of this cafe was so welcoming, or it might have been that I was hungry, or perhaps it was the extraordinary service this place provides... whatever, but I just have to say that I've been here a few times and the food and service are...

Been here many times in the past. Food used to be great, the staff used to be attentive and the vibe was cool. Went there with my father 2 weeks ago and sat outside and told him this is the best place for lunch. Waitress seemed disinterested in being there and forgot our meal. It went down like this: After...

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
