About us

Serving so much more than your typical cafe eats, Ground Zero on Sydney Road Plaza in the heart of Manly is both a comfortable coffee shop and a busy restaurant all-in-one. Early risers enjoy a fantastic breakfast menu at this local favourite. With numerous choices including grilled tomato & ricotta on sour dough, corn fritters with smashed avocado, bacon and salsa or try the incredible pancakes topped with mascarpone and triple berry compote – a sinfully sweet way to start off your day in beautiful Manly. If you are a late riser, breakfast is served until 3pm so don’t worry.

Featuring plenty of outdoor seating, northern Sydney’s Ground Zero Cafe is an excellent spot to kick back and relax on warm summer days. Their excellent lunch menu is served from 11am to 4pm and offers a wide variety of hearty and healthy options such as the Nicoice Salad with fresh seared Tuna Steak as well as a wide variety of gluten free and vegetarian options. The restaurant’s specials change with the seasons, but you can expect tasty options like pulled pork tortillas, braised lamb shanks emotional support animal certification or breakfast pizzas to grace the menu. Furthermore, Ground Zero’s sweet treats are known around Sydney, so forget about the diet and slurp down one of their incredibly decadent milkshakes in flavours like mint chocolate and Oreo or go for the healthy options such as a fresh squeezed clean green juice. This Manly cafe is no secret, so be sure to book ahead for the perfect seat.
