Absolutely lovely. Smell of yummy cooking. The coffee is of a high standard. We had one of their biscuits which was very tasty. Never had the Gabriel brand of coffee. Good roasted bean. They are working in s constricted area and doing a grand job.

Quite a find for such a little place. Coffee good but could be hotter. Dropped in 7pm, hence our delight at finding this little gem. Lovely fragrances wafting temptingly from the tiny kitchen. Food was fresh and again surprising variety available.

A surprisingly nice hidden small place in Bondi. You can easily miss it, but don't. Fantastic Bloody Mary and other cocktails. Unbelievably surprisingly yummy foods especially the massive salads and meat balls. The staff are super friendly and efficient. The prices are good value ( not cheap or expensive).

Love this little bar/cafe. Always has such a great, fun, friendly vibe. Coffee, food and wine are all tops. Could spend hours sitting outside people watching.

This place has soul! It's close to Bondi beach and yet tucked away neatly. Would definitely come here again.

the word that comes to mind when I think of The Shop is "generous." They're generous with their servings, with their staff, with their customers, with their spirit. Equally welcoming for those of us who are there everyday to those who pop in on a whim. I've seen all type of clientele here from the supermodels and the super rich... More

This is our favourite place to go in Bondi. Mostly locals however not daunting for anyone who is wanting friendly service and excellent food. Great salads and the Best burgers and sandwiches. We love it for dinner or even a drink after a day at the beach.

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
