Great location but average

Absolutely nothing wrong with the food or the service but in a location where there is a vast choice this is just average and doesn't stand out

I couldn't decide which of the bottled beers to have (there where at least 6 on the menu) or whether to have ice tea (also on the menu) waitress said 'well i don't have beer and i don't have ice tea so.....'

I have been to this restaurant since December 1966 and used to recomend to visitors. I has changed ownership. They did not keep the previous menu. The service was poor, the cakes were stale and exp[ensive for what one got

We stopped here for lunch and were disappointed with our sandwich. It was meant to have various fillings in it including avocado. When they came I couldn't see any in mine and asked the waitress about it. She said talk to another member of staff. He went to the kitchen and said it was an avocado paste spread onto the... More

We ate breakfast here overlooking Bondi Beach. The guys behind the bar were friendly and the breakfast was plentiful - always enjoy spinach and the ozzies love the stuff for breakfast. I didn't see many cakes and certainly don't know why it's called a 'Gelato' bar. The cafe itself is neat enough but the back rooms could do with a... More

Discovered this pastry and cake bar a few years back when shopping at the Westfield Shopping Center. I come from a family Hungarians and I can tell you without question that have the best Hungarian Apple and Poppy Seed Strudel I have tasted. It always brings back memories of the strudel we had when growing up. Can't wait to return... More

fantastic cafe for coffee & those 'magnificent' Cakes. Great to stop, just to put up your feet & recharge.

What a great shame that Gelato Bar has changed so much. Yummy cakes from the front window are gone. What is inside is looking very tired and not so fresh. Atmosphere has changed and the menu is no longer what it used to be.

So sad to see the institution change! The service was never much good but it was worth tolerating for the great food. Last week they still had a few remnants but no more - this week even the last remaining cakes and strudel have gone. Staff mentioned a name change was soon to happen. So now for Hungarian cakes you... More

Really wanted a great coffee and a sweet treat. Coffee is very good but the treat options and very old fashioned and a bit boring. Nothing looked at me and said hello - so had to settle for a coffee only.
