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.

We went with our family for lunch and ordered 4 burgers about 10 minutes after arriving. Forty minutes later people that had arrived and ordered after us were receiving meals. We asked the waiter and he said he'd find out and get back to us. After again asking we were told the order hadn't gone into the computer so he'd... More

The cakes are looking a bit old fashioned nowadays, but the matzo ball soup is always good. Nice that some places don't change and the Gelato Bar has been a staple at Bondi forever.

The gelato bar has changed since my last visit the veal joint, and the pate mushroom have gone sadly but it is still hanging on to its iconic status

As the last few reviewers have noted : Gelato Bar is under new management and there is not a single trace of the Hungarian/Eastern European menu that they used to have. The wonderful cakes are still there, but in a much reduced selection. The restaurant has been renovated to be a lot brighter and airier - which is an improvement.... More
