Sun, sea and solid cup of coffee is what lazy mornings in Bondi are all about. Here’s our list of where to go to get the best coffee in the area, whatever your kind of brew.

Melbourne’s Sensory Lab Roastery (our Melbourne office loves coffee so much they've even set up in the same building) have opened up a caffeine cavern that plays Cash and Dylan while serving kick-arse coffee.

Restaurants

Bondi Picnic

Little Marionette beans are always a safe bet and the coffee here is rich and strong. Change things up and go for the cold drip. It comes with a little jug of coconut water that gives the coffee a perfumed, almost floral flavour.

It’s all about bagels, brioche and brisket at this New York deli-inspired bakery café. But did you know they also pull an excellent espresso? Expect long lines, but deliciousness as an end result.
