Bakery

“Walk down to Diamond bay Reserve and then take the path on the left to go for a walk. The cafe in on the main road but take the ocean walk rather than taking Old South Head Road the whole way. I suggest getting a coffee and a pastry or getting some bread to make toast back at home for your stay (a loaf will last). They do good pies and classic sydney breakkie - Avo and toast and eggs etc. I personally get a large flat white macadamia milk. Why not continue walking to Watson's Bay and get a drink at Watson's Bay Hotel and Fish and Chips at Doyles. Get a bus back up the hill. ”
