Whoever said breakfast was the most important meal of the day, was most definitely on to something. Breakfast in Manly isn’t just a meal, it’s a movement. Manly Beach comes to life early in the mornings regardless of the day and whatever tickles your fancy as your morning meal, you’ll find it her in Manly.

Manly boasts some of the best breakfast joints in the world, well that’s what we think and judging by how busy things get, we’re not the only ones. All budgets are covered, from eggs benedicta overlooking the ocean to oatmeal in a trendy lane-way cafe, you will not be disappointing.

Being on holiday gives you the perfect reason to indulge in this awesome Australian tradition – breakfast out. So leave the boring old cereal behind and check out some of these fab Manly breakfast options.


If you care about sustainability, ethically grown, organic products this is the place for you. They don’t sell anything processed, that includes soy and skimmed milk. This cafe is a hot spot for locals, offering healthy yummy food and it wont cost you or the earth too much. Pop in and check out their menu, you’ll find them at 17B Whistler Street [Map].

Sketch Bar

Just down the road from Manly Beachside Apartments, Sketch Bar is an awesome addition to Pittwater Road. Their coffee is great, the staff are super friendly and the breakfast menu is yummy and budget friendly, with most options under $20. Check out their website here.

The Pantry

This is at the higher end of the budget when it comes to eating out for breakfast. Smashed Avo on toast will set you back nearly $18. But, if you want the best view of Manly Beach while you sip on your coffee, this is the place for you. It’s the closes restaurant to the beach and the views will not disappoint. We recommend calling to make a reservation and requesting a window table. Check out their menu here.
