Late brekkie

Great location in manly, friendly wait staff and great food, what let down our visit to sugar lounge was their coffee, the coffees were a disappointment.

Very disappointing return to what was our favourite brekkie spot at Manly last time we were here. Looks like new staff , cushions have been removed so not so comfortable and we could not attract a waiter to serve us. Sad as a great position Plenty of other places to visit

Healthy $7.00 options for kids was our priority while looking for a breakfast spot on Manly. This place had seasonal choice if fruit that came with a substantial pot of honey and a large pot of yogurt that was yummy!! The other kid had pancakes with maple syrup and enjoyed it thoroughly. Freshly made $6 juice was lovely too. Great... More

Stopped in for a drink on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, mainly because of the couches and beach-facing open front. Service was ok, didn't have half of the beer on their menu available, only had 2 choices of mocktails (considering it's a cocktail bar they could do better...). Worst was the smell - sweat and cheese from all the furniture and... More

Like the relaxed space, the food is fine, reasonably priced. And good selection of cocktails with a lovely view. Nice place to sit and relax for a couple of hours with a cool drink and a bit of snap.

Mai Tai's came out in fancy island themed glasses used to hide that both were overflowing with ice and fruit but were less than half full with drink. Bartender made good after we showed him but only after we waited for 15min and watched about a dozen others get served. Atmosphere was good and while it had a bit of... More

A bar that was open at 10.30pm when we landed after travelling for 25 hours. Thank you for the service and the fab choice of wine - didn't expect this from the outside

We arrived and were told we had to order within 10 minutes as they were changing over the kitchen ready for lunch which would have been fine if we didn't have to wait around 30 minutes for our breakfast. My fiance's egg was overcooked and mine was so raw that it still had all the whites. Ended up just eating... More
