Bondi summer cafe tour 2014

I’m extremely lucky to have the choice of over 40 cafes within a 15-20 minute walk of my house. While I have my favourites, I do like to spread my cafe dollars around and support the cafes that really put time and effort into their coffee, food and service.

There just aren’t enough days in the year for me to spend my caffeine quota and dollars at places that don’t bother to go the extra mile in service, or who don’t do anything differently. Every cafe listed is popular with Bondi locals and somewhere I would be happy to recommend to a friend.

The aim of my Bondi summer cafe tour is to get behind the cafes that locals really love.

I’ll be including helpful key points for each cafe including whether they’re child friendly, whether they have a sea view and what their most popular dish is.

At the end of my project I’ll be producing a little map featuring all of the cafes I’ve recommended; a little caffeinated tour guide of Bondi. Hopefully this will allow visitors to leave Bondi with great memories of the food and coffee, as well as memories of the crashing waves and hot bodies.

Here’s a list of cafes I’ve covered so far, with a link to the article I posted:

The Sensory Lab
