Bower Restaurant

Cafe in Manly

Follow the foreshore southeast from Manly’s ocean beach to this salty little cafe/restaurant, so close to the sea that the windows often get sprayed (a major storm once closed it down for months). It's pretty casual, with counter ordering; the menu has lots of seafood and the sandy surfer-gal staff aren’t afraid to let Olivia Newton-John wail on the stereo.
