Buttermilk pancakes and a side of bacon at any time of day — good one. Almond milk (made fresh on-site each day) at no extra cost — good one. And a toast menu that extends well beyond peanut butter, Vegemite or jam — good one. Sensing a clear theme? It’s these thoughtful touches and a willingness to accommodate that help Good One Cafe stand out in Bondi’s already health-conscious cafe crowd. Eager to please, Good One caters for all dietary requirements, to the point that nearly every item on the menu can be made vegan-friendly. While healthy options are its forte, Good One acknowledges that on some mornings you’ll want an overwhelmingly green omelette with courgette, kale, soft herbs and hippie mix ($18), and on others you’ll crave a sizeable stack of buttermilk pancakes with berry compote, pistachio streusel and vanilla mascarpone ($17). Regardless of what you choose, if you wash it down with one of the cafe’s wellness smoothies, which are jam-packed with obscurely healthy ingredients, the balance will be easily tipped in your favour. At the end of the day Good One is giving the people what they want, with some unique added touches.
