But with so many places to choose from, it can be even harder to narrow down a spot. So to help, we’ve created the ultimate guide to help you navigate Bondi's café scene like a pro. Much like Bondi itself, the menus here are all about clean living, so whether you’re looking to fuel up before hitting the coastal walk, or for post-yoga nourishment, the best cafés in Bondi have you more than covered.

Lox in a Box

This North Bondi Jewish deli has got all your bagel needs covered. A quaint hole-in-the-wall with real chutzpah, expect traditional bagel flavours peppered with some fun, modern twists. We have it on good authority that Lox in a Box's signature lox bagel is a must-try, and the whipped cream cheese schmear is seasoned with lemon, dill and shallots to give it a bit of kick. What’s not to love?

Promenade Bondi Beach

Promenade Bondi Beach Kiosk

Tucked away in the beachside haven of Bondi, the Kiosk at Promenade Bondi Beach is a standout among the best cafes in Bondi. Unpretentious and effortlessly cool, it captures the essence of coastal living without the fanfare. The Kiosk serves up delectable treats on the fly, giving you 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 cafe. For a laid-back brunch that feels like a warm hug, the Kiosk is Bondi's not-so-hidden gem.

Porch and Parlour

Locals happily line up at Porch & Parlour every day of the week.  The design draws inspiration from natural elements around the café such as the ocean, and shades of green that match their indoor foliage. With a great selection of innovative dishes, think pea pancake, mascarpone hotcakes and Baja fish tacos, you will find it hard to pick something to eat. If you’ve had a late start to the day, don’t worry, the menu runs all-day.

Harry's

Once a hole-in-the-wall café churning out coffee, Harry’s has expanded into an ethical kiosk and bar, and their loyal following has come along for the journey. There’s always a queue but it’s not just for the coffee, the brunch offering is equally as good. Opt for the Harry’s hotcake which is topped with seasonal berries, passionfruit, toasted coconut and vanilla double cream.

Speedo's Café

Speedo's Café

This North Bondi café is all about clean eating and gluten-free – 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. With a relaxed vibe, Speedo’s Café meals are colourful and downright delicious. For an insta-approved brekkie, order the coconut porridge.

Lox, Stock & Barrel

Lox Stock & Barrel

For a taste of New York City in Sydney, Bondi residents flock to Lox Stock and Barrel. The deli-slash-diner only seats 40 so there's generally a short wait, but believe us, it's worth it. Bagels are the order of the day, and they pair beautifully with their delicious smoothies.

Yoghurt bowl Bills Bondi Sydney

bills

When bills arrived on Bondi Beach, it was the ‘it’ restaurant of the moment – and that hasn’t changed. The space is light-filled, airy and casual, serving up modern Australian plates with a twist. The ricotta hotcakes served at bill’s are the stuff of legend – fluffy cakes of heaven topped with banana and honeycomb butter. One bite, and you’ll question every supermarket-bought pikelet of your youth, and vow to never sink to such lows again.

The Nine

The Nine

The Nine is a wholesome brunch spot health-crazed locals swear by. Tucked away on Glenayr Avenue, this organic Mediterranean-style café serves up delicious plates of goodness in a minimalist Scandi setting. There's limited seating, so our advice is to arrive early so you can secure a streetside table.

Pie, coffee, and a book on a table at Gertrude and Alice Bookshop Bondi Beach Sydney
Gertrude & Alice

Gertrude & Alice

With wall-to-wall books (over 25,000!), communal tables and plush velvet chairs, Gertrude & Alice is as cosy as it gets. The quirky café-slash-bookstore also offers a range of snacks and Middle Eastern brekkies – making it a haven for bookworms and freelancers. Stop to sip chai or enjoy some breakfast. The crumpets are as nostalgic as the second-hand books, while the avocado smash is a Bondi must.

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

Makaveli

Makaveli may be a newbie to the scene but is quickly climbing the ranks among the best cafes in Bondi. This cosy beachside spot offers a homey haven with a dash of Italian flair.

Glory Days Bondi

In the coastal embrace of Bondi, Glory Days beckons as one of the locale's best cafes. Born from a lockdown daydream, it's a nod to lazy summer days and the Euro holidays Aussies 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's a casual escape where you're very much well-fed as your burdens wash away with the waves. Have a Goodness Bowl and flat white at Glory Days, and you'll see that every day can be an endless summer vacay.
