EAT & DRINK is all about bars, eating out and dining in and around Manly. It is a kind of a guide to all amazing restaurants, coffee places and other little spots that I find worth sharing. As Manly is one of Sydney’s most iconic destinations along the Northern Beaches, there are so many restaurants, cafes, pubs, take-away food and wineries to explore.


Whether you’re after a coffee, a post-surf pick-me-up, a quick bite to eat, a healthy Acai breakfast bowl or a place to have brunch, here are a few of the hot spots in and around Manly worth tracing loops to. You’ll probably find it hard to find your favorite coffee shop in Manly as there are too many really good ones.
