Can't say much about the day time business of this place, but it's a very cool place to have a light dinner and drinks. Awesome, laid back tiki vibe, great decor and great staff. The location is great with a view to the beach and excellent people watching spot due to the open front. The place has a great collection... More

Popped in for a quick lunch - I ordered the banana prawn and pineapple salad. Worst meal for a long time. Prawns were large but hadn't been de-veined - gross. Pineapple tasted like tinned stuff. I had to return it. Waitress very apologetic and took the price of my meal off the bill. Others in my party had a superfood... More

Went to this cool little tiki bar, it's just like Hawaii. Really relaxed feel with relaxing music and Vibe. We arrived around 4.30pm and our wait informed us about tiki time, that runs from 5pm - 7pm mon - thur. $10 mai Tai and $5 tacos, what a bargain. Tacos came out looking fresh and colourful and wow they were... More

I have been searching for a cafe on the internet for pancakes. I finally found Sugar lounge on the net and it clearly stated they do brunch from 12pm - 4pm and they served pancakes. I was eager to try so my husband and i got there and the waitress said they don't serve pancakes nor do they do brunch.... More

This place was a few steps away from my hotel -- Novotel Manly. I loved everything about it! They have an impressive menu that has something for every kind of eater. The ambiance is relaxed, happy piped in music, friendly service. Eat facing the ocean .... it makes for a beautiful way to start the morning!! I can't wait to... More

I have been here a number of times for breakfast. Great location across from the beach. The food - try the corn and zucchini fritters - coffee and service has been excellent each visit. Highly recommended.

I love this place, it is right across the road from the beach, just like being in Hawaii, without travelling. The food is great, I love the décor, it is cool and hip. They have a huge cocktail list and love the fact they have infused water. Great for everyone, families, friends, couples, or solo.

We stopped for a bite to eat after having drinks here in a previous occasion. The vibe is great - typical island beach bar style. The menu is limited but everything we ordered was very tasty. We had spicy chicken wings (husband says it's better than his previous favourite place in Key West) and a beef burger. Both portions were... More

I had brunch with my friends and it was not a good place to eat. The tables were not cleaned properly, the service was below average and the waitress could not even get my order correct! I ordered pancakes and asked for the lemon mascarpone to put aside and they couldn't get that simple tasked to be completed. I would... More
