Located at the water’s edge of world-famous Manly beach, The Pantry Manly is the perfect spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
Manly’s famous “Beach House” was built in 1919 and for many years served as a tea house and change rooms for locals and tourists alike.
Finally Opened in November 2010, and renamed, The Pantry Manly has continued the tradition of catering for Manly locals as well as international visitors who can sit back, relax and take in the beautiful Manly seafront.
We decided to go and see for ourselves, it was a glorious day and we took a short trip on the ferry to Manly, arriving at the Manly Wharf.
A wander down the crowded walkways , lined with shops, children jumping in the little water fountains that popped up in the pavement.
We lazily wandered in and out of the various interesting shops along the way.
It almost seemed that the seagulls were urging us to hurry along our way.
On our arrival down to the beach, we saw this artist displaying his paintings, for sale, alongside the boardwalk.
We finally arrived at our destination and joined the queue to get a table and we were lucky enough to get a table overlooking the beach.
We ordered the Chilli & garlic prawns (Queensland king) with a warm French baguette, as a starter and the Ploughman’s plank with aged cheddar cheese, shaved Bangalow ham, terrine, pickles, quince jam & warm French baguette, to share, both were equally delicious but these were such a difficult choice as there is so much this menu has that is so delectable that we would want to try. The Chilli and Garlic prawns were so good that we were sorry we didn’t ask for another portion to take away. Everything on the menu is so well priced.
We finished our meal off with a glass of the best dry Pinot Grigio for one of us and a Moscow Mule for the other.
We really, really, really need another visit.
