The Best Cafes in Bondi to Brunch at this Weekend

Our edit of the best cafes in Bondi for a beachside brew for locals and day-trippers alike.

Porch and Parlour

Cafes are to Bondi what avocado is to toast – and you can't turn a corner without stumbling across a trendy coffee spot serving up a solid selection of brunch bites. With so many places to choose from, it can be hard to know where to perch, so, to help, we’ve created the ultimate guide to navigating Bondi's café scene like a pro.

Much like Bondi itself, the menus here are all about clean and healthy living, so whether you’re looking to fuel up before hitting the coastal walk or for post-yoga nourishment, the best cafes in Bondi have you more than covered.

Lox in a Box

Lox in a Box

This much-loved local Jewish deli in North Bondi has all your bagel cravings covered. A quaint hole-in-the-wall with real chutzpah, expect to find traditional bagel flavours peppered with fun, modern twists.

We have it on good authority that Lox in a Box's signature lox bagel is a must-try, while the whipped cream cheese schmear is oh-so-tasty, seasoned with lemon, dill and shallots to give it a bit of kick. What’s not to love?

Shop 2/96 Glenayr Avenue, North Bondi

Promenade Bondi Beach

Promenade Bondi Beach Kiosk

The Kiosk at Promenade Bondi Beach is a standout among the best cafes in Bondi. Unpretentious and effortlessly chic, it captures the essence of coastal living without the fuss. Serving up delectable treats on the fly and all-day breakfast on weekends, you get a taste of Bondi's charm in every bite.

It's the kind of place where locals casually sip their coffee, trading sandy toes for a cosy spot in the charming cafe. For a laid-back brunch that feels like a warm hug from a friend, the Kiosk is Bondi's not-so-hidden gem.

Porch and Parlour

Porch and Parlour

Locals and visitors will happily line up at Porch & Parlour, every day of the week. The design draws inspiration from natural elements around the cafe, from the blue tones of the ocean to the colour of the sand that matches the indoor decor.

With a selection of innovative sweet and savoury dishes - think a pea pancake, fresh ricotta hotcakes and Baja fish tacos, you will find it hard to pick just one dish to eat. If you’ve had a late start to the day, don’t worry, this breakfast menu runs all day. 

17-18/110 Ramsgate Avenue, North Bondi 


Makaveli may be a newbie to the scene, but it very quickly climbed the ranks among the best cafes in Bondi. This cosy beachside spot offers a homey haven with a dash of Italian flair. You can easily spend the entire day here: mornings start with the perfect brew, afternoons unfold with tasty bites, and evenings buzz with suave cocktails.

The menu is a tribute to shared moments, boasting snacks and shareable plates that make every bite a communal celebration. For a taste of Bondi's unique blend of warmth and cool, this spot is a must.

Harry's Bondi


Once a hole-in-the-wall cafe churning out crowd-pleasing coffee, Harry’s has expanded into an ethical kiosk and bar, and their loyal following has stuck around for the journey.

There’s always a queue, but it’s not just for the aesthetically pleasing matcha and cold-drip coffee - the brunch offering is equally as good. If it were up to us, we'd go for Harry’s hotcake - topped with seasonal berries, passionfruit, toasted coconut and vanilla double cream - any day of the week.

2/136 Wairoa Avenue, Bondi Beach

Speedo's Cafe

Speedo's Cafe

With a relaxed vibe, Speedo’s Cafe meals are colourful and downright delicious. This North Bondi cafe is all about clean eating and gluten-free options – but that’s not to say they don’t have classic breakfasts on the menu.

You'll find everything from truffle mushrooms to chilli scrambled eggs, and for an Insta-approved brekkie, order the coconut porridge or caramelised banana pancakes.

126 Ramsgate Avenue, North Bondi 

Glory Days Bondi

In the coastal embrace of Bondi, Glory Days beckons as one of the locale's best cafes for a beachside bite. Born from a lockdown daydream, it's a nod to lazy summer days and the Euro holidays we adore.

This isn't your typical tourist haunt; it's a haven reflecting Sydney's dual beach lifestyle, hitting its peak in Bondi. At Glory Days, each day is a casual escape where you're well-fed and your burdens wash away with the waves.

Sit back with a Goodness Bowl and flat white at Glory Days, and you'll see that every day can feel like an endless summer vacay with the right tools.

Bondi Pavilion, Shop/3 Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach

Lox, Stock & Barrel

Lox Stock & Barrel

For a taste of New York City in Bondi, Sydney residents flock to Lox Stock and Barrel. The deli-slash-diner only seats 40, so there's generally a short wait, but believe us when we say - it's worth it.

Bagels are the order of the day, and they pair beautifully with their delicious smoothies. If bagels aren't your thing, the bowls loaded with vegetables are sure to satisfy.

140 Glenayr Avenue, Bondi Beach 



When bills arrived on Bondi Beach, it instantly became the ‘it’ restaurant of the moment – and nothing has changed. The space is light-filled, airy and casual, serving up modern Australian plates with a twist.

The ricotta hotcakes served at bills are the stuff of legend – the fluffy cakes from heaven are topped with banana and honeycomb butter. One bite, and you’ll question every supermarket-bought pikelet of your youth, and vow to return to bills time and time again for some sweet tooth satisfaction.

79 Hall Street, Bondi Beach

The Nine

The Nine

The Nine is a wholesome brunch spot the Bondi health-conscious locals swear by. Tucked away on Glenayr Avenue, this organic Mediterranean-style cafe serves up delicious plates of wholefood goodness in a minimalist Scandi setting.

There's limited seating, so our advice is to arrive early to secure a streetside table - perfect for some people watching!

163 Glenayr Avenue, Bondi Beach

Gertrude & Alice

Gertrude & Alice

With wall-to-wall books (over 25,000, in fact), communal tables and plush velvet chairs, Gertrude & Alice is as cosy as it gets. The quirky café-slash-bookstore offers book-lovers a range of snacks and Middle Eastern brekkies – making it a haven for bookworms and freelancers to stay a little longer.

Rated one of the top bookstores in the world, we can't think of a better place to sip a chai or enjoy some breakfast. The crumpets are as nostalgic as the second-hand books, while the avocado smash is a Bondi must. 

1/46 Hall Street, Bondi Beach

Orchard St

Orchard St

Naturopath Kristen Shanks is behind this wholesome and nutrition-focused Orchard St concept, and promising to purify Sydneysiders with herbal elixirs, booster shots, raw treats and cold-pressed juices.

Stop in at the Orchard Street Elixir Bar in Bondi for a freshly made juice, healthy meal or restorative potion. If you’ve got time to linger, have a chat with one of their on-site naturopaths.

Brighton Boulevard and Wairoa Avenue, North Bondi 



Occupying a prime corner position in North Bondi, Shuk is an airy, bustling spot that serves scrumptious Israeli-Mediterranean dishes and fresh bread, all day long.

It’s famous for a soul-warming shakshuka and its zesty hummus, and the weekend brunch lines attest to that. To make the most of your visit, round up your mates and order different dishes to sample all the best ones on the menu.

2 Mitchell Street, North Bondi 



Among the best cafes in Bondi, Rocker is a charming space that channels a laid-back spirit with a touch of European verve. The talented cooks whip up delicious dishes made from fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. There's always something new to come back to try, as seen in their popular and ever-changing bottomless brunch spreads.

This Bondi cafe is made for long, boozy brunches downstairs, the bar is a vibe of its own. They serve up classic cocktails, Aussie wines, and local craft beers to pair with delicious share plates. So, fire up the group chat and bring your best pals here for good food and great vibes.
