This little cafe doesn’t look like much and they could most probably do with a bit of a revamp, but the food was delicious. We went for a walk and a brunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back.

Took the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly. This was a very nice ride on the ferry on a very nice day. The beach was beautiful and well worth the journey and expense. I think the ferry was $20 USD out and like $13 USD...More
