Great lunch spot with an awesome Bloody Mary!

On our last day in Australia, we decided to take the ferry over to Manly from Sydney. Looking for lunch, we stopped into Hemingway's and I'm so glad we did. I got a really nice craft beer, and husband had what is probably the best Bloody Mary we have ever had - seriously! I don't know what they put... read more

I loved this place. Peaceful on a winter day. Good beer, decent food, books lining the way. Very friendly and efficient waitresses. I had a great time.

Grabbed take away coffees while staying at the Novotel recently. The coffees were great and service good. I really liked the aesthetic and wish I had time to stay and sample the food - what I saw looked fantastic!

Love hanging out in Hemingway's, perfect place for enjoying the passing parade of foot traffic. The chicken nuggets are my weakness and always go down a treat with the 4 Pines on tap beer .... my happy place!

Hemingways is quite quirky and perhaps a little bit of a surfie spot, being just over the road from the Manly surf. This is quite the spot to hang out and have a great breakfast and some coffee's! Menu's are a bit tired!

If you're looking for a place to have a drink and chat with friends, this is the place in Manly to do so. My wife and I have been here several times to just have a drink before heading home, and also to meet up with friends. It's perfect for this, because it isn't noisy at all. Evening conversation isn't... More

The first thing that strikes you is the aroma of coffee which pervades the indoor area. The lunch (or brunch) menu was quite restricted so I went for the kale and warm chicken salad that was mentioned here recently. It was huge and took quite a while to get through. It tasted fine and the avocado was a welcome contrast... More

Had a great time dining there solo during lunch. Highly recommend the avocado, tomato and goat cheese dish. Great view of Manly Beach on the outside patio. Staff was pleasant and attentive. The ingredients were fresh, and reasonably portioned for the price paid.
