Regulars come early in the morning for their coffee fix, perching on milk crates and mismatched chairs outside in the sun.

The scene here is pure laid-back Bondi. Away from the ‘scene’ that is Hall Street and Campbell Parade, locals rule at Jed’s Food Store, and they come here for delicious long breakfasts (with a Mexican edge), healthy snacks and lunch throughout the day. Regulars come early in the morning for their coffee fix, perching on milk crates and mismatched chairs outside in the sun, or reading the papers at small tables inside where there is plenty of action in the open kitchen.

On a busy Saturday morning you’ll have an interesting time trying to get a seat. Service is likely to be brisk – they’re busy and they want you to know it. Weekdays are a little more sane, the domain of kids, dogs and all those buff Bondi locals who are mysteriously around at 11am on a Tuesday.

For breakfast, try Poached Eggs with Mexican Beans and Chorizo, or a take on Huevos Rancheros, a toasted tortilla with scrambled egg. There are wholesome options like Porridge and Bircher, as well as healthy Smoothies made with the wonder-fruit-of-the-moment, Acai Berries. Coffee is intense and rich – it’s worth having a second.

Lunch involves burritos, wraps and salads. It’s all hearty, healthy stuff made with good ingredients, and it will make you feel like one of the lucky locals.
