Manly’s 5 cafes.


I miss nearly everything about Manly. I’m so glad I spent spent 2 nights in Manly doing absolutely nothing, before concluding my Sydney adventure last month. My days were spent literally waking up into a coffee house. Then, whiling away the rest of the day away, either by strolling into Coles and people surfer-boy watching or cycling up all the way to foot of North Head. (My next post is gonna be on this!)

1. Barefoot coffee traders (EXCELLENT COFFEE!)

Their belgian hot chocolate is to die for! I’m not even joking. If I was dying and I could choose my last drink, I’ll choose this hands down. The chocolate is so rich and blended to perfection, that even now as I’m typing this, I can feel this drink down my throat. Okay, I shall stop here. Just go and try coffee from here, whenever you are in Manly, Sydney. If you ever are. You can take my word on this.

The one thing you’ll love about Manly is that it’s such a small town you can hardly miss a cafe that is worth checking out. Just basing on the crowd, I stumbled into three beans. And of course, I surely wasn’t disappointed. Definitely decent food and, needless to say, iced chocolate was a bomb.

Rita’s baked bacon and egg

You get a very cozy and indie feel when you step in Belgrave Cartel. It’s quite a different cafe as you don’t have staples like, eggs benedict for instance, which is a refreshing change. Instead, you have interesting twists to your first meal of the day. I loved my egg which was wrapped in baked bacon. Toast came along with avocado and pesto. Definitely a cafe you should try!

Mini Cheese Burger

Not only is Moo Gourmet a cute, little burger joint in Manly but also easily one of the top 5 in town. Just look at how cute straw is?! And also, from the menu I’m sure you can tell, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There have THAT many variations for a burger. I’m not huge on burgers, but I liked Moo Gourmet.

Decided to try BenBry burgers for my last dinner in Manly. It’s apparently better than Moo Gourmet, according to online reviews. However, I disagree. I didn’t really enjoy BenBry, as my chicken burger was rather oily. It didn’t quite fancy my tastebuds, I must say.
