Located just footsteps away from world-famous Bondi Beach, the appropriately named Speedo’s Café has got to be one of North Bondi’s busiest. This beachy neighbourhood favourite is perfect for vibrant colourful dishes, with a side of picture-perfect views.
With a beach chic atmosphere, the café features classic timber tables and chairs with landscape shots of the iconic beach adorning the walls. Just pull up a seat at the communal breakfast bench or relax in the outdoor seating area with a post-dip meal accompanied by a gentle sea breeze.
Speedo’s caters to an array of dietary requirements with a variety of tasty gluten-free and vegan options, while regularly updating their menu to keep punters on their toes. For the fitness fanatics looking for a post coastal walk refuel, the ‘clean’ menu section will keep your health goals in check. The Green Goodness Bowl loaded with poached eggs, smashed avocado, chickpea, flax and sesame seed fritters, veganaise, super greens, miso reduction and quinoa sourdough is pretty much Bondi epitomised in a breakfast dish.
While the Hot Pink Pitaya Bowl is a colourful frenzy of fresh mango, coconut, strawberry, passionfruit, banana, kiwifruit and veganola. With other options including Protein Power, Veggie Patch, Summer Coconut Bowl and the Fruit Plate, you simply cannot go wrong.
Topping our list is the super delicious ‘Gen Y’ Smashed Avocado with poached eggs, danish fetta, cherry tomato, pesto, zaatar, chilli, and quinoa sourdough. And you don’t even have to be a member of Generation Y to appreciate it – a must-try! For something both delicious and insta-worthy, the Caramelised Banana & Chia Vegan Pancakes fit the bill perfectly – fluffy and stacked sky high, finished with poached berries, pistachio crumbled and a good dose of maple syrup. Alternatively, there’s The Frenchie – sweet brioche covered in a cornflake crust with white chocolate confetti, vanilla custard, seasonal fruit, berries, pistachio crumble, lime mascarpone and maple syrup. Yum!
To wash it all down, there are green smoothies, detox drinks, colourful lattes, refreshing frappes, protein shakes, and even alcohol. And you know the coffee will be good with Speedo’s snapping up the title of “best coffee in Bondi” for their Vittoria roast.
With its top-quality food, seaside location and speedy service, there’s a reason why this place has been a neighbourhood favourite for so many years. Well worth a visit!
