This place has gone down hill... It used to be one of my favourite places to visit... The unique character of the place has changed... It now feels like customers are numbers, less personal or attentive service.

such a great little find! it's so lovely to be surrounded by literature and a little bit of class in manly. drink selection is interesting but a little pricey, but that's like most of sydney

A very small café facing the beach where you can sit either inside or on the pavement outside. There was always a crowd and it was easy to see why, great coffee, excellent service and good pricing for their food. They have a different menu for breakfast and lunch as well as a dinner and tapas menu for evening dropins.... More

Popped by for breakfast. Limited menu, no flexibility...won't do a fruit salad. Coffee took a while but was good on arrival. Staff lack customer service focus. Ordinary. Only saved by location.

We sat outside and enjoyed the Hemingway burger with Parmesan chips while we watched the world go by and overlooked the sea. Great food and location. Going inside to use the facilities, we realised that it is really quirky and would be a great place to have a coffee or brunch/lunch on a cooler day. Well worth a visit and... More

Great place for breakfast, especially to sit outside with a view of the beach. Breakfast food is really reasonably priced. Decor is quirky and fun. Also ate in the restaurant upstairs which was totally different. Quite pricey but a really nice experience.

Manly is flooded with coffee shops, Hemingway's used to be top of the list, but sadly competition is fierce! Coffee is average and food a little over priced....but location is amazing! The bonus with this coffee shop is it's licensed, so if you feel like a Bloody Mary with your breakfast its very do-able. Cocktails after dark are always nice.
