Coffee fix @ Manly Harbour
Manly Harbour Village is buzzing at weekends with its regular markets and city visitors enjoying the beautiful breeze and views over the Harbour and Moreton Bay.

Visiting on a weekday is a chance to enjoy its serenity and sip a coffee at one of the many popular cafes and restaurants. I like to mix it up according to my mood, time of day and if I am enjoying some solitary space or the company of friends.

Cuttlefish Cafe is on the Esplanade and a great place to sit and have coffee and a snack on market day.

The cafe is a great spot on market day just opposite the Jan Powers Farmers market which bustles with fresh food from baker to butcher to farmer. The Sunday Creative markets have an eclectic range of stalls selling all manner of craft items. They are an ideal hunting ground for that unique gift or just something for you or the home. The Farmer's Markets are on the first and third Saturday of each month from 6am to noon and the Sunday Creative markets each week from 8am to 3pm.

Fish Cafe is on the corner of The Esplanade and Cambridge Parade and offers a mix of dining experiences with lovely views overlooking Manly Harbour. Take away fish and chips can be enjoyed with a latte outside, or dine indoors for their lunch and menu selection. Moreton Bay Bugs, ravioli and whole baked squid appropriately feature.

On the corner opposite is Keith's on Cambridge with also fine views overlooking the harbour. I enjoy a snack and coffee sitting outdoors perched on stools enjoying the fresh Moreton Bay breeze.

There's a multitude of dining choices as you go up Cambridge Parade with the Manly Cafe, Manly Hotel, Celtic Corner (great for Guinness) and the Manly Deck with its balconied views above.

A newcomer on the scene is the Cambridge Lane Cafe tucked away off Cambridge Parade up from the Manly Travel shop. It's a bustling hub particularly at weekends.
