Great views, terrible coffee

Good sandwich and had amazing fries with the aioli sauce. They have wifi but it was not working. Had a black coffee that was simply terrible.

My husband and I walked past a few times and in the afternoon we wanted a cocktail - and this place is cute. We enjoyed it!

Dear Lozza0007, Thank you for your lovely review. I am happy to hear you and your husband enjoyed our bar and cocktails. There is nothing better than a yummy drink on a beach front. We hope to welcome you again soon, maybe for some nibbles this time? Kind regards. Kasia General Manager More

My family of three went to the sugar lounge for breakfast on our holiday. It had delicious coffee and milkshakes. Our breakfast was perfect and was not that expensive but worth every cent. Would definitely come to the sugar lounge agian. Loved it☺️

On the ocean front in Manly we stumbled in here having a family feud and all left content. Our brunch choices ranged from scrambled eggs, corn fritters, big breakfast, potted eggs and pancakes. Service was great too. Would recommend.

We return because the first time we dined here we had a fantastic breakfast. The lemon, marscapone pancakes are sinfully delicious. You seriously have to try them (on a good day). We have since been back three times and found that the meals became worse with each visit. Sour dough toast was dry, eggs were ok & bacon was also... More

We enjoyed people watching from the front bench at the Sugar Lounge which was fortunate as the service was really slow at all points from ordering to getting the bill. No chocolate sprinkle for cappucino so served a flat white instead despite partner still asking for the frothier cappucino. Milkshake was just slightly frothed milk with some choc syrup. Partner...

Sat down. Went to the bar to grab a menu. My boyfriend tried to order drinks & was told it "I have all this to get through (pointing at a list) ...It's table service" So we wait probably 10 mins before we can finally flag someone down. Asked for a cider with a splash of juice in it. Waited another... More

$10 mojitos - what's not to love about that. Really good staff, attentive waiters and a good nibbles menu. Beware, they do tend to creep up on you!

Came here with the kids for a lunchtime pizza and they remanded a return on two other days which is always a good sign... Staff were really nice and friendly, good drinks and nice views across the road to the beach. A nice spot to spend a couple of hours
