Enjoying a morning coffee at North Head is a really great way to start off the day. I normally start walking at sunrise from Shelly beach. I take the clearly marked bush track all the way to north head. By the time I arrive at the North Head lookout the sun has come up and the view is amazing. At North head there is a great place named Bella Vista Cafe and theres an pleasant outdoor seating area. Bella Vista also do breakfast and the menu is top notch. Normally its not too busy and the area is really calm and relaxing. Theres plenty of cyclists that ride past and consider the place as their local. After you enjoy a coffee or breakfast you can follow the road all the way back to manly.
