Located in a side street in North Bondi overlooking Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach, Speedos has breathtaking views from all seats.
Seemingly super popular with the locals, we watched the barista pump out an amazing amount of takeaway coffees on our morning of visit.
The cafe is modern, bright and open and certainly a comfortable and casual cafe. We were there early morning and can see this being a place you could chill at all day with a juice or coffee, watching the passers by.
Their menu is great, showcasing brunch favourites from big brekkies to bacon and egg rolls, as well as healthy dishes and some incredibly vibrant and colourful instagrammable dishes that not only look good but taste amazing! Speedos even topped the list created by Big Seven Travel magazine which created a list of the top 50 insta worthy cafes across the world.
In addition, the cafe has some great options for diners who are vegan nor have gluten and dairy free needs.
We can see why it was voted instagrammable for the food is beautiful, colourful and well presented, and massive on size. My pancake order is testament to this. We absolutely loved the caramelised banana and chia vegan pancakes. The vegan pancakes were super tasty, stacked with pieces of caramelised banana between each layer and topped with berry compote, dragonfruit and half a mango. They were served with raspberries, blueberries, kiwi fruit and a generous pour of maple syrup and sprinkling of pistachio crumble. Whilst the serving was massive, it tasted so good that I managed to finish it all!
We also enjoyed the veggie patch; a beautiful plate with toasted focaccia, topped with grilled eggplant, tri mushrooms, spinach, kale, crispy chickpeas, sugar snap peas and crispy emoki, served with a drizzling of pomegranate and a smear of beetroot labneh. Also a huge serving, that does indeed look like a veggie patch.
If some other healthy options are up your alley, maybe the Acai bowl or blue spirulina bowl topped with fruits would be great as you can find a perfect refreshing brekkie for a warm day.
A range of drinks available from Vittoria coffee, or some favoured lattes like matcha, red velvet or the one I ordered – the gingerbread latte, which did indeed remind me of a gingerbread cookie! There’s plenty of juice options, smoothies and tea too. Grab yourself a cruffin, croissant or cookie to go and you’re set for a delicious treat.
Staff were hospitable and welcoming and we had a great experience.
