Best Restaurants in Bondi for a Lazy Weekend Brunch

by | Mar 27, 2016 | Bondi

Looking for the Perfect Brunch Spot in Bondi?

If so, then no need to worry because there are many restaurants in Bondi where you can find a great breakfast or brunch menu, from delicious cronuts to endless glasses of prosecco, there is no shortage of options offered all around Bondi.


 

1. Trio – 56 Campbell Parade

Love to pick your own ingredients for your juice? Trio has an excellent juice menu that lets you pick up to five different fruits and put them together in a custom drink.

Though ordering custom juices at Trio is a highlight, it shouldn't overshadow their delicious brunch menu.

My first love for breakfast at Trio is the Texas BBQ Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict. Geez, I can't even type that without my stomach growling. A runner up would be the Boss eggs.

Cost for two: $60
Hours Open: Monday- Friday 7:30 am – 3:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday 8 am- 4 pm

2. Icebergs Dining Room and Bar – 1 Notts Avenue

The view, the view, that iconic view of the Icebergs pool with Bondi Beach in the background. You just can't beat it.

Sunday brunch at Icebergs is a special occasion affair. One, it's super, duper expensive. And Two will require reservations.

Here is the set menu for Sunday Brunch at Icebergs.

Pane e Pasticceria
Selection of Breads & Pastries
Whipped Pepe Saya Butter

Frutta
Watermelon, Berries, Citrus & Geranium Ice

Piatto Principale (select one of the options below)

  • Frittata with Porcini, Goats Curd & Crispy Organic Kale
  • Smoked Petuna Ocean Trout with Beets, Roe & Cultured Cream
  • Pork Cheek, Organic Hen’s Egg, Asparagus, Radicchio Jam & Focaccia

$55 Set Menu
$75 with Bottomless Prosecco
$90 including Osetra Caviar and Champagne
(all include Coffee or Tea).

Did you see those prices? Yeah, like I said, this one you save for a special occasion like out of town visitors or a big birthday or an anniversary or your move to Sydney anniversary.

Or did you see those prices and think, “There's no way in hell I'm paying that for breakfast!”?

Then try the Icebergs Club below the fancy pants dining room. There you have all the standards for breakfast, and you still be the view.

Cost for two: $110 and up.
Open hours: 12 Noon to 3:30 pm and 6:30 PM to 12 Midnight.

3. Speedo's Cafe – 126 Ramsgate Avenue

Speedo's Cafe is yet another beautiful spot in Bondi, where you can drink, eat, and enjoy a lazy, weekend brunch. Speedo's is popular with the cool kids which means you will be seated in the cafe like sardines so consider either going early or later for brunch.

The triple stack of pancakes with berry, banana, ricotta, chopped pistachios and maple syrup has got to be one of the more indulgence brunches I've ever had in Sydney but somehow still felt healthy.

If that sounds like too much for you for breakfast, then try something simpler like the poached eggs on toast with avocado.

If you are there around midday, then it's all about the cronuts. Don't leave without having one.

The coffee here is fab as are the smoothies. If you're in need of a nice healthy afternoon snack, then try the coco whip. No, not cool whip.

Speedo's is a great little spot!

Cost for two: $40
Hours: Breakfast is served from 6.30am till 11.45am daily

4. Shuk – 2 Mitchell Street

It is better to visit Shuk for brunch in Bondi, after spending the morning at the beach working up an appetite.

The food here is incredible!

Shuk serves delicious Teff pancake that is made with Ethiopian teff flour, ricotta, sweet dukkah, maple, apple and pear compote. (Yes, pancakes are one of my go-to food choices for breakfast not dessert.) But what they're famous for is the Shakshuka with capsicum, tomato and baked eggs. Everyone raves about it.

Food at Shuk is healthy, and the wait staff is always attentive and friendly.

When you decided to go out for Sunday brunch with the family or friends, Shuk at Bondi is an A plus choice.

Cost for two: $65
Open hours: Monday- Wednesday 6 am- 5 pm, Thursday- 6am- 10pm

5. Bondi Hardware – 39 Hall Street

Wait, did I say hardware? Yep, sure did. Really? It's not just me that thinks vodka and orange juice when she hears screwdriver?

Bondi Hardware has a fantastic DIY breakfast where you get a choice of two free range eggs, your choice of poached, scrambled or fried, on Luxe Sour Dough. After you order your eggs, you move on to step 2 where you order sides to share with the rest of the table. Sides include chorizo, baked beans, sweet potato mash and, for an extra charge, hollandaise.

Since brunch is only on the weekend, consider making a booking ahead of time.

Cost for two: $80
Open hours: Monday – Thursday 4 pm until Late, Friday Midday until Midnight, Saturday 9 am until Midnight, Sunday 9 am until 10 pm

6. Lox, Stock & Barrel – 140 Glenayr Avenue

The words “New York style deli” and “bagels” sent me over the moon as the bagel void for me in Australia had not been sufficiently filled for many years. Happy dance.

My go to breakfast here is a bagel with avocado and lox, but I always end up taking bite after bite of my husband's Bowlarama until he cuts me off.

Bonus: The coffee here is fantastic.

Cost for two: $40
Hours: Monday- Tuesday – Sunday 7 am to 3:30 pm

7. Bills – 79 Hall Street

Before moving to Australia, I saw a travel show about Sydney on the Travel Network. The host of the show went to Bills for breakfast and had the ricotta hotcakes. This because a must-do in Sydney for when we arrived, brunch at Bills.

I wasn't disappointed nor will you be.

It will probably take you a few minutes to get over the prices at Bills for breakfast but just commit and enjoy. It's not like you have brunch every day, right?

Like I said the ricotta hotcakes are a big yum but if hotcakes are not your thing then try the creamy scrambled eggs and corn fritters.

Bills is also a good lunch or dinner option and has a cookbook that I often use at home.

Cost for two: $50
Hours: 7 am to 9:30 pm

Transferring Money to Australia from Overseas

Lock-In Your Exchange Rate

Did you know the Australian dollar is a commodity currency? This means the value of the Australian dollar is linked to the price of iron ore and other Australian exports. It also means that it's HIGHLY VOLATILE! When a good rate comes along, you need to be ready to jump on it and lock-in that exchange rate.
