Hemingway’s Manly offers a menu inspired both by our beachfront location and our origins in the French Alps – all served in a cosy beachside café surrounded by décor (and books) inspired by our namesake; Ernest Hemingway.

For Breakfast, choose from classics such as Croque-Madame, Haloumi and Avocado or Eggs Benedict and for those with a sweeter tooth, Granola and fruit Bowl and a range of freshly-baked muffins and croissants.

Our lunch menu includes All-Day Breakfast options, Steak-Frites, Ratatouille, and a range of burgers with vegan and gluten-free options.

For dinner, we let our French roots speak a little bit more, with Cheese or Charcuterie board, home-made Patés & Rillettes with freshly baked baguette. For main you will have to choose between Classic Steak Tartare, Duck confit, Tuna sauce Vierge or perhaps the Special of the week.
For dessert ? Crème Brulée, Chocolate Fondant and maybe a cocktail !

The service here is always exceptional, ambiance great outside or in, and food delish. We had the charcuterie, risotto, steak frites, creme brûlée and chocolate fondant, a few drinks and bottle of wine, thankfully we had a long walk home!!!

I hate writing these reviews. I like to go to restaurants but I don't see why I have to write to websites. I mostly delete when I get to this stage. Why isn't it enough that I complete your ratings request? Why do I have to write something myself? To all restaurant booking sites can you please just stop this. Filling in your ratings to guide your users should be enough.

This is the last one I'll be writing.

PS I don't write Amazon reviews for the same reason. Star ratings like on Kindle are surely enough.

We booked a lunch at Hemingway's for a very casual birthday celebration. I found their staff uncommonly delightful to deal with - very accommodating and unlike other places in popular areas, didn't require a deposit or minimum spend. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the space is so cosy. Would 100% book again for another time, and definitely recommend! Thank you Anne-Laure and team x

Hemmingway's has character and great aesthetics. It is a great place to meet for either casual business meetings or with friends. The menu has variety and the food is well prepared and fresh.
My favourite dish is the Bad Boy breakfast.

The staff are attentive especially if you have a furry friend.

Had breakfast - great staff & attentive enough, but not smothering. Food was excellent and well presented. Had the Avocado toast and it was literally the most beautiful looking Avo toast I’ve ever had. Almost didn’t want to eat it because it was so artistically presented. Delicious too. Also had a Bloody Mary - a bit spicy for my liking, but delicious nonetheless.
