Cafe Bondi Is the New Eastern Suburbs Eatery Combining Pastel Hues with Breakfast Cocktails
Take in views of Bondi Beach as you enjoy vegan falafel bowls, zucchini fritters and a variety of bloody marys.
After hitting up the beach for a morning swim, folks in Sydney's eastern suburbs are spoilt for choice when deciding where to go for a morning coffee or big breakfast. Adding to the overwhelming amount of options, a new cafe has opened up on Campbell Parade in North Bondi, just a short walk from the sand.
Decked out in nostalgic pastel colours and serving up twists on cafe classics, Cafe Bondi has opened in the digs formerly occupied by The Depot. Drop in and you'll find a sprawling all-day breakfast menu, plus burgers and bowls for lunch, all on offer seven days a week.
The menu contains all your breakfast favourites like smashed avo, acai bowls and buttermilk hotcakes — but if you're looking to shake up your first meal of the day, you can also branch out with options like zucchini fitters with avo salsa, grilled chorizo and watermelon radish or a vegan turmeric tofu scramble with eggplant, sautéed spinach, roasted cherry tomatoes, avocado and house salsa.
Lunch is served from 12pm, and includes a slow-cooked beef brisket sandwich, as well as a vegan falafel bowl filled with quinoa, kale, butternut pumpkin, pickled beetroot and falafel. If a vegan bowl isn't going to hit the spot and you're just in the mood for a burger, Cafe Bondi's is made with a tajima beef pattie accompanied by cheddar, bacon, tomato, lettuce, pickles and onions.
While the menu is full of enough goodies to have you beelining down to Cafe Bondi come the weekend, the drinks list also includes a series of breakfast cocktails. A yuzu spritz (Aperol, yuzu, pink grapefruit and prosecco), three types of bloody marys and jugs of rose sangria sit beside a selection of beers and an extensive wine list ideal for your next boozy brunch.
Cafe Bondi is located at 286 Campbell Parade, North Bondi. It's open 6.30am–4pm, seven days a week.
