Dropped into Manly Interpolitan Cafe for coffee. The coffee was good & service friendly. Unfortunately it's located on a busy corner so it's very noisy. The cafe could do with a good update as it's looking pretty tired & the furniture is shabby. However the breakfast coming out of the kitchen looked yummy.

Always good to sit outside, but this cafe is next to a roundabout and you may get the exhaust fumes! Good coffee and friendly service.

The interpolitan serves very yummi food at good prices and is a bit off the main tourist mile. It has plenty of indoor and outdoor tables, is very cozy, and even though it's always busy, there is always a table. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the service is quick and good. Definitely worth a try!

This is my go to breakfast spot. No tourists, great food and the portions are generous. They always have copies of today's paper available and there's a choice of a sunny table outside or a cozy cushioned bench inside. Breakfast is served all day which is fantastic for those who like a lazy start to their weekends. The chai is... More

Tried this after walking past a few times and seeing some menu items that looked appealing. Overall, a very good dining experience but come hungry as the servings are large and, from what we have experienced locally, excellent value. The barramundi ($22) was beautifully grilled with a caper and dill hollandaise that was subtle and tasty. My co-diners had the... More

Where do I start? This place has been recommended by a drunk friend. We were on our way to Criniti's when drunk friend said: "try this little cafe in Manly! Great roast and paella!" So we did. Got there and the waitress didn't understand a word we were saying - she doesn't speak or understand English properly. She was lovely... More

My breakfast spot of choice in Manly. Although looking a little tired these days still serves a wonderful 'healthy' early morning fry with a smile.

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
