We had relatives visit from Victoria to go to vivid with us. This year the light show wasn’t as good as they toned it down a lot. But the trip on manly ferry we got to see all the lights on the harbour. We stopped off at manly for dinner at the Steyne Hotel in Manly Corso. Meals were a bistro pub with a ringer when meals were ready. Window seat of the beach. Meals were $20 each and we opted for water bottles. Meals were large and value for money.

After Vivid lights we stopped off at the café in circular quay for some relief from the rain and had hot cappuccino and hot chocolate. The place was noisy and packed. We ordered and this was their menu. Very cute. The waitress got one of the orders incorrect but fixed it promptly without problems. This particular restaurant/café is open 24 hours and have been around since 1986. I actually recall going there the week they originally opened in early hours of the morning they were the only café around.
