Breakfast, Lunch or a
Drink on the Water
The Boathouse Balmoral1
Why locals love it
An excellent (but expensive) breakfast and lunch menu make this great for brunches and all day dining, with a line often forming outside, especially as no bookings are allowed. Located at the picturesque Balmoral Beach, part of the swish suburb of Mosman, on a wharf looking over the harbour.
Why you should visit it
Although the food menu is expensive, the furtherest section of the wharf permits alcoholic drinks (the rest is "family friendly"). Find a perch on seats or benches in the sun, send someone inside to the bar, and get ready for an afternoon of relaxed drinking.
There are 4 different types of rosé wine on the board. If you feel like something non-alcoholic, there are whole coconuts for $7.
