The service here is crap - perhaps our fault for going during the day - probably better as a bar than a lunch place.

Been twice in last few days for breakfast and now dinner. Great beach front location, good food, great atmosphere but VERY relaxed service. Staff always helpful but food on both visits came slowly and bit by bit over 15 minutes or so. Also not the cheapest place in town, but location and views cost money and yes I would return.

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!

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.

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.

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
