My top 10 places to eat in Bondi

Looking for a healthy and delicious meal in beautiful Bondi? You will be spoilt for choice my friends, but here are my top 10 places to eat (in no order).


1. M Deli Cafe: 32 Fletcher Street, South Bondi

I used to live just around the corner from this little gem and I constantly miss it!  Located in south Bondi this is more of a locals hangout as it’s a bit further back from the beach.  They do the most amazing salads made fresh daily with a big selection, always really hearty and filling with things like roasted root veggies, pork slaw, chicken and asparagus and roast cauliflower.  You can wash it down with a fresh coconut or an almond milk dandelion latte.  The also have sandwich options and a selection of sweet treats to boot.


2. Paleo Cafe: 310-330 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction

The Paleo Cafe is a reliable place to go and get a fresh and healthy meal.  They also have great takeaway meals ready to go in the fridge – grab your morning coffee and a lambshanks to take to work for lunch, sorted!


3. Henleys Wholefoods: 310-330 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction

Just downstairs from Paleo Cafe this place is great to sit and enjoy your food over a cup of herbal tea.  Their food is all about sustainability and supporting local farmers.  I love their pumpkin hazelnut meal bread topped with zucchini ribbons, smoked salmon and yoghurt dressing, mmmmm…


4. About Life: 31/37 Oxford St, Bondi Junction

A wealth of gorgeous food options and you can do your grocery shopping too – what’s not to love!  Try the coconut quinoa porridge with banana, walnuts, chia seeds and cinnamon.


5. Bondi Wholefoods: 1/30A Hastings Parade, North Bondi

This north bondi cafe does a yummy banana chia loaf served toasted with ricotta and honey – perfect for a Saturday afternoon treat.  They also have a small shop stocked with many goodies (including every flavour of Pana and Loving Earth chocolate so watch out!)


6. The Health Emporium: 263-265 Bondi Road, Bondi

If you want a smoothie this is the place to go!  These guys do superfood smoothies filled with fresh organic ingredients like avocado, banana, dates, chia seeds, almond milk, etc.  But be warned, the smoothies are expensive (around $13) and are basically a meal in themselves.  They also sell a wealth of bliss balls / slices and an amazing coconut flour banana bread, and have a large grocery store too.

7. The Atlas Kiosk: 14 Hall Street, Bondi
Wayne and I loved to come here and sit at the big table up the back and stare at the huge world map, talking about all the places we wanted to go.  Oh, and they do the best shakshuka eggs which you can get with a high quality gluten free bread too.  My other favourite is their quinoa and hazelnut bircher.

*Update: I have been informed by my Bondi friends that Atlas has sadly closed it’s doors 🙁


8. Lox Stock and Barrel: 140 Glenayr Avenue, Bondi

Awesome spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  These guys are small and popular so best to make a booking.  If you’re there for dinner try the slow roasted eggplant plate, it is seriously delicious.


9. The Shop & Wine Bar: 78 Curlewis Street, Bondi

This cosy little spot is great for meeting up with a few friends for some delicious food and wine.  They also stock to die for cakes from ‘Wellness By Tess’ – enough said!


10. Paper Planes: 178 Campbell Parade, Bondi

Seriously good Japanese food including this “pop plant” dessert, with a fun vibe and a variety of sake available.

Oh and if want a great coffee, try Bondi Massive (8 Campbell Parade) or Sensory Lab (pictured at the top, 75-79 Hall Street).


P.S if you’re looking for some self care while in Bondi my favourites are getting acupuncture at Acupuncture Collective, and having a float at Bondi Float and Massage.
