Earth to Table
In the hustle and bustle of Bondi Junction, Earth to Table offers respite with its relaxed vibes, raw and vegan dishes and the most colourful display of raw desserts we’ve ever seen. Owner and raw chef Julie Mitsios is famous for her beautiful cakes, which are dairy-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar free – not that you’d ever notice.
Speakeasy Bar is a chilled-out bar along Curlewis Street, with red lanterns and retro furniture, and it's the place to go when you’re after a scene that is less raucous and more mellow. The meals here are a mix of Asian and Mediterranean and go with a select drinks menu.
Tucked away on Glenayr Avenue, this organic Mediterranean-style café serves up delicious plates of wholesome goodness in a minimalist Scandi setting. A Bondi local favourite – this place is teeming with beachside brunch goers every Saturday and Sunday – with a focus on organic, locally-sourced and clean-eating foods. If you’re on a health kick, this is the place to come. The café itself is intimate, but the interiors are bright, open and airy, so you don’t feel like you’re cramped ...
Gertrude & Alice Cafe
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 mains – making it a haven for bookworms and freelancers. If you’re craving a quieter vibe, head to the Hemingway room, a beautiful hideaway with sofas and reference books.
Bondi Beach’s trendy sake bar, Mamasan is where Moulin Rouge meets 1920s Shanghai. There are two places to dine, the opium den or the bar. The food is pan-Asian tapas and it’s amazing, and if you’re not a fan of sake that’s ok because their drink offering is diverse.
Bennett St Dairy
This trendy cafe is a local go-to, thanks to its specialty coffee, farm-to-table food, and generous servings. The seating may be limited at Bennett St Dairy, but if you can, nab a seat on the wooden counter or a streetside table, soak up the sunshine and indulge in some serious people-watching.
Rosenbaum & Fuller
A stylish all-day eatery-cum-wine bar, Bondi Beach's Rosenbaum & Fuller is the new local hangout. The polished floorboards, native flora and quirky hanging light installations make the space warm, inviting and uber-cool. Honest to its core, there is no frilly façade nor flashy gimmicks – from their fresh cocktails and quality coffee, to the wholesome food and friendly service there is so much to love about Rosenbaum & Fuller.
Can Cava Pintxos & Wine
There’s tapas, and then there’s pintxos: bite-sized morsels of food on toothpicks. It hails from Barcelona, as does the team behind this cosy Bondi Beach wine bar. Inside, you’ll find hand painted Spanish tiles and terracotta walls, while the outdoor area has a case of puppy love.
A Tavola Bondi
This is A Tavola’s second outpost, and it’s just as good as the Darlinghurst original. The pasta is made fresh daily, and the menu features a simple selection as well as weekly specials, many of which focus on fresh, sustainable seafood. Our advice? Pair your meal with an Italian wine and save room for dessert.
Harrys Bondi beach
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. The space is much bigger space and the interiors are sleek. There’s always a queue but it’s not just for the coffee, the brunch offering is equally as good.
craig's cheese shop
Along tree-lined Birrell Street in Bondi Junction, Craig’s Cheese Shop is way more than the name suggests. A business born out of the now famous parmesan biscuit, Craig’s sells cheese and other dairy products, but it’s also a café that serves delicious meals and coffee.
Sonoma Cafe Bondi
Baking some of the best sourdough loaves around. Sonoma is a family-run empire and they have been baking and delivering delicious, crusty breads to cafes and restaurants across Sydney since 2001. Branching out to pastries, biscuits, tarts, muesli and their own chain of cafes, the Sonoma name is synonymous with wholesome and delectable sweet and savoury treats.
When Bills arrived in Bondi Beach, it was the ‘it’ restaurant – and that hasn’t changed. The space is light-filled, airy and casual, and the food is modern Australian with a twist. Celebrity chef Bill Granger studied interior design and fine art before becoming a restaurateur, so it’s no surprise that his eateries are stunning spaces.
Up South Bondi
A prime corner location with head turning street art, you can’t miss Up South. Formerly known as Bondi @2026 this brunch spot has a great vibe. The streetside tables are a great place to sample one of their wholesome smoothies and inventive brekkies. Their motto is 'there is no love sincerer than the love of food', and eating here couldn't make that any more true..
The Corner House
Run by the same guys behind Panama House, Corner House knows exactly what locals want: a relaxed, casual atmosphere, simple and seasonal food, and space to move around. The dining room dishes up fancier Italian fare, while the upstairs bar is all about pizzas, cocktails, charcuterie and cheese boards. There’s also an outdoor area that beckons on balmy nights.
