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.

This cute little place has a good selection of food, from hipster comfort food: pulled pork burger with coleslaw and fries $18 (delicious) to superfood salads featuring the usual suspects: quinoa, kale avocado (did not order). The service is nonchalant and not particularly attentive, but that's fine, it's a tiny place and approaching the bar for whatever you need is... More

Have been enjoying this cafe for some months. Awesome coffee, good light bite menu and good sun trap out of wind on those southerly windy days. Worth a visit

Great service and extra good food and fresh juices. Coffee good but not hot. Other diners included several AFL stars!

had a delicious lunch here - can highly recommend the pulled pork burger. Quite a surprise to find such an establishment on the Manly beachfront. Typical Sydney prices but I think worth the cost. No reservations so think about timing your visit "off-peak".

As I was walking down the beachfront of Manly, I came across this little café. I ordered the chicken and kale salad thinking I would be still hungry after but boy was I wrong. It was so amazing and I'm not usually a salad kind of gal. It was drizzled in a pesto basil dressing with these little crunchy bites.... More
