1. Down the Hatch

Located in an outdoor seating area at Port Edgar Marina, this is the perfect place to go on a rare hot sunny day. Watch the world go by as you sip on one of their old fashioned shakes with flavours such as maple waffle and Hershey’s chocolate. The succulent burgers are also worth a mention, too.

2. The Manna House Bakery & Patisserie

Since 2017, the cafe has been offering customers delicious cakes and views of the three bridges. On offer are a breakfast and brunch menu, as well as a kids menu and an all-day menu. There are some particularly interesting delicacies on offer, an example being the tower of toast.

4. Picnic Kiosk

With coronavirus still being prevalent, sitting outside still seems the most sensible option. Luckily, the Picnic Kiosk has outdoor seating. On offer are a range of Italian coffee and Italian ciabattas and paninis.

5. Ferry Tasty

Apparently, the owner Chris came up with the idea of running his own cafe in quarantine. We think it was a great idea of his, for the place is incredible. The cafe offers a menu that according to them is “fresh, local and sustainable.”
