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

Having arranged to meet my friends for the famous European cakes at our favourite coffee shop yesterday, we were utterly dismayed to see a very disappointing change to this establishment.The old popular cafe of the past 58 years is well and truly gone. Along with the food and cakes it was famous for all this time. Also gone is the... More

The Gelato Bar has reopened... but there are no longer any cakes in the window! So sad, after so many years... There is a reduced range of cakes inside but there was no cherry and cheese strudel evident. The guy there said that they had sold out for the day... at two in the afternoon...

I visited Bondi last night, and the Campbell Parade Gelato Bar outlet was closed, with paper plastered over the windows. Can anyone shed light on this? I went to the Bondi Junction outlet on 20 July, and it was still serving cakes. It looks as if the dumping of the classic mid-European menu was a gigantic mistake

Went here for an afternoon cake as the cakes looked amazing. And they tasted divine too was disappointed that they didn't come with ice cream for the price they were charging as they were a but rich and needed something to help it go down.

We have been enjoying cakes from the Gelato Bar for over 50 years. The quality is consistently outstanding and the prices very reasonable. We are disppointed that they have recently reduced their trading hours.

I am gutted that they have wiped out their famous menu items if Chicken Soup with Matso balls and Goulash - all the comfort food this place has made since 1958. Now it's just another coffee shop. I won't be back.

We had dinner there last night and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was cooked to perfection and so cheap. The atmosphere was very friendly and the waitress very attentive. We stumbled upon this place but we'll definitely be returning.

The cakes are still fantastic. I had a cheese and cherry strudel and my child had a chocolate croissant. The cappuccino was also made to perfection. Well recommended!!
