    It's been a year since we last visited and we were disappointed with the lattes we received compared to last time. I now drink soy rather than milk and Barefoot's soy had a poor aftertaste and it looked ordinary. My wife had a regular latte and while it looked good, she too was disappointed with... Read more

    Glad we found this little gem. Great coffee off the main drag.

    Lovely coffee, probably the best coffee shop in Manly in terms of coffee, our usual spot on Saturday mornings. Love their latte, beans taste just fantastic with right temperature, especially milk froth makes latte creamy and silky. Unfortunately service is just so so, nothing special or standing out.

    Friendly staff and chilled atmosphere met with a quality roast - it's all about the beans. Latte bold but creamy, well balanced with a clean finish. Recommend.

    Had a few really good piccolos over two days. Service was excellent and it's a cute little fit out.

    Poor surf today so I opted for an early coffee instead. Just as well as my flat white was sublime. Rich, creamy and perfectly balanced with a truly delicious soft acidic finish.

    On fire!

    A few months back I was trying to get to Manly Beach and stumbled across this place.

    Nice little fit out, good service.

    My cappuccino though - amazing. I got takeaway and sat on the beach. I still remember how great it tasted months later. They're definitely doing something right!

    Coffee made with love. For an organic free trade blend this coffee was excellent.

    Small and intimate. Nice friendly staff, easy to have a chat to. Clean shop and tidy space. Synesso looks sexy on the bench looking out to the street. Solid espresso!!! Flat white(which I rarely drink and was an 8oz. take away) was good. The milk drowned out the espresso a bit, but after... Read more

    Fanatic for this place. Wish I could go more often. Baristas are awesome and the fresh homemade waffles with melted chocolate are to die for.

    Great coffee and very yummy waffles, what else do you need for breakfast. It really is very good coffee in a cute little spot.

    I had to look hard to find this place last time I was in Manly.
    It wasn't easy as I don't visit Manly often.
    However it was worth tracking it down.
    Now if I'm over that way again I won't have to worry about finding a good coffee.

    Great little place. Probably seats 10 at the most. Worth dropping by if youre near by. The toby's is very bold and earthy. The milk was a touch too hot but I thoroughly enjoyed my flatwhite. Keep it up!

    Every time I've been to Manly and had a coffee from this place I've never been disappointed. Skilled baristas, lovely beans, magnificent coffee.

    I enjoyed the coffee from here, the guys know how to extract the best flavour from the beans. Coffee with passion is all we ask, thanks.

    Been coming here a lot lately, the place just seems to get better, had a long black made with a guest roaster coffee from 'Mecca' which was faultless, crew behind the machine are always relaxed but friendly

    Great coffee and by far the best I have found in Manly after many visits over several years. Consistently good but can vary with different barista's.

    We got directed to this, the new branch of Barefoot, by the barista in the original branch - they'd run out cold drip. The new place was a little hard to find - it is unsigned and we walked past it unknowing. It seems a lot posher and more formal than the original - staff in formal attire like... Read more

    Friendly and cool place, but milky and couldn't even tell it was Tobys.

    You really do have to hunt for a good coffee in sydney, not as easy to find as melbourne. Barefoot has a great little space and produce a decent cup. Good stuff guys, coffees well extracted and full of flavour, worth a second visit and I\'ll come back next time I\'m up from Melbourne.

    Strong dark double shot piccolo latte made from a Synesso by a really knowledgeable friendly barista...... It doesn't get much better !

    Too hot! Would make a more detailed review of flavours but my tongue is burnt and the single wall cup means i can only hold the cup by the lid!
    Once it cools it tastes average: not bad but not great, don't go out of your way for it. Beautiful coffee machine but probably not used to it's full extent.

    Huge improvement over my last visit. Coffee was great and the Brazilian gent behind the machine has more than happy to talk coffee with us. Staff were welcoming unlike last time. New Synesso helps too.
