My wife and I had a good breakfast here. Good coffee is good and overall it is good value. Service was great and the owners/staff are very friendly.

If you're just looking for a light bite that tastes good, is value for money and want quick service, you can't beat the hidden away Hum Café. Ok, it doesn't win restaurant/cafe interior design of the year - there are plenty of cafes in the area aiming to achieve that goal (many of them all show but little substance) -... More

If you looking for a well priced meal and coffee in Manly this is the place. It is in one of the lanes off Whistler Street and well worth the visit.

Dont be put off by the slightly quirky exterior and the run down shopping alleyway/precinct just to one side. You will be given a warm welcome here by the owner, great coffee, refreshing fruit smoothies and simple but good value sandwiches are on the small menu at this unpretentious cafe.

We got a table here when Manly was very busy. Just a small café, but the service was very good. We had a very tasty lunch, bacon & egg burger with the salad and cheese on a gorgeous fresh roll, and also the vegetarian breakfast - poached eggs, avo, tomato, mushrooms and toast. As well as the mixed juice I... More

Nothing fancy, good old fashioned home cooked meals. One of the best coffees ever had in Manly. Owners know everyone's name and what they order. Full of locals. Love it. Down to earth and very relaxing Very reasonable

Have been here around lunchtime during the week to get a coffee and something sweet. Unfortunately the service person had a bad day probably and doesn't seemed happy that I wanted to order something. Coffee was good anyways. Location is ok so far.

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood 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 Harbour 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.
