Situated nearer to the Northern end of Bondi Beach just off Campbell Parade is a great cafè called Harry’s. Make the most of the location go for a swim beforehand, go for a stroll along the coastal walk or if you are visiting on a sunny Sunday check out the markets that are situated just across the road. We stopped by on a dreary Friday morning for brunch, this didn’t take away from the experience, the service was great and the cafè buzzing with people socialising. Harry’s is stylishly set up as you would expect for a cafè set in the social mixing pot which is Bondi Beach. The cafe is sectioned in to two dining areas, with the prime spot being the bench at the window at the front of shop, where you can enjoy the Bondi scenery. There is a semi open kitchen and a cool aqua retro looking coffee machine at the take away window, convenient if you are after a take away coffee to enjoy on the beach.
There are plenty of great beverage options including coffee by 5 Senses one of our favourite coffee roasters. There was also a list of great sounding smoothies, juices and some different types of latte. We tried the tumeric latte which was very nice, similar to a chai. There was also a beetroot latte on the menu, that sounds interesting. We of course went for some coffee; a great espresso and macchiato.
The menu had plenty of delicious healthy options using fresh as well as organic ingredients. This is great if you have a New years resolution to get healthy or to drop a few kilos. Don’t despair, there are also a few indulgent options such as burgers and their famous hotcakes.
After much deliberation we ordered the crispy rolled egg and the cashew cheese cigars, both dishes were nicely presented.
As I cut into the crispy rolled egg, the yolk oozed out, perfect! This was served with chorizo and chickpea and kale with the dish tied together with a tasty capsicum puree.
The crisp cashew and cheese cigars were served with a nicely poached egg, again with the yolk oozing. This was accompanied by a salad of mixed heirloom tomatoes of different colours which added to the visual appeal of the dish and helped cut through the creamy cigar filling.
This was a great cafè experience. Efficient and friendly service, top notch food. A must visit if in the area or make it a plan to visit.
