Barefoot coffee traders, Manly

Toby’s estate coffee. Wood floor, green tiled walls, this place has a hole-in-the-wall feel, seating only nine on some converted tree stumps. A lone barista keeps the place running, stern-faced but friendly in temperament.

Coffees are all $2.50, even for an affogato, which is quite a find in an area like manly. Coffee is good; there’s some real flavour punching through the lightly frothed, but good temperature milk.

  1. Greatest Hot Chocolate and Waffles ever! And apparently (i dont drink it) the coffee is great too!

  2. Ooooo, the coffee is so goood. Best art and design mags! A great place to meet the nice locals, this one is, but if you’re in a hurry, the barristas are quick!

  3. squid & mikey have something very special going at barefoot … best coffee in sydney (not just manly) & the relaxed vibe & feel is awesome.

  4. this place is the best coffee around – in all of sydney. locals, cool,the waffles are amazing…..the hot chocolate is better than any I’ve had in the world! love this place. wish they served a biscuit if you are not in the mood for a waffle. It is called ‘hole in the wall’ by some….go there and find out why – it’s tiny!!

  5. Does anyone know who makes those waffles?Is it the same guy that was at Katoomba………They were delicious
