I have been to the Boathouse in Shelly Beach before for dinner (which they recently discontinued) and today I am here to have a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast while enjoying the beautiful view of Shelly Beach.
Coffee and Milkshake
The caffeine hit is so need this morning and the rich crèma just wakes up every cell in my body. The milkshake is oh so sensuous with its rich creamy flavour with the sweetness of the strawberry mix intertwined to deliver a delicious tasting experience.
Green Eggs and Ham
Poached eggs, bacon and grilled heirloom tomatoes & basil pesto
The crunchy sourdough, tangy oily pesto, rich sticky runny egg yolks with a soft gelatine like pouch and the salty smoky bacon with the rich juicy tomato all combine for a rustic breakfast experience. It is comfort food and with quite a view.
Looks lovely (makes me very excited to be moving to Manly very soon) – surprised to hear the dinner service has stopped, do you know why?
Breakfast there is amazing – you’ll love having this as your local. In terms of dinner, not sure why they stopped it. I suspect Shelly Beach is a bit out of the way from Manly, so people are unlikely to venture there after dark unless they wanted to visit the Boathouse specifically. I think cafes like this are driven by foot traffic.
