Cafe of the month: The Coffee Shop Next Door
What’s not to love about a surf shop adjoined to a wholefoods cafe? The team at The Coffee Shop Next Door were one of the first to start driving a shift towards slow, real food across the Manly area. And we love the fact it is a family-run business too!
The team has also been ardent supporters of ours from the start, and we were thrilled to hear they were included in the new Specialty Coffee Book (NSW), which was just published last month. So you know if you go in, you can be assured you are getting a top quality brew (ours really was that enjoyable, pensive pick-me-up you always dream of getting).
On the menu, we couldn’t go past The Green Goat – avocado, goat’s cheese, sprouts, seeds and lemon on organic sourdough (or gluten free sprouted loaf if gluten is a problem). Pictured; scrumptious! Feeling cheeky? Grab a matcha, blueberry, chia seed, dark chocolate and hemp seed muffin.
We recommend washing it down with an Inside Out Alpacino, or an organic cacao, spiced vanilla or caramel almond milk, but we are a little biased… cold pressed juice from Orchard St, Dandy Jake Chai and other goodies also on hand!
The Coffee Shop Next Door is located at 46 Pittwater Road, Manly, NSW 2095
