“Great location, great food, exceptional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love this place, it's just off the beach at the northern end of Bondi. It's always busy, but there's always room...and the food is great! The classic bacon and egg roll is the best one on earth! The coffee is great and the thing that makes Speedo's Cafe is the excellent service, which is fast, friendly and always with a smile!

“Bondi Icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

One of Bondi's most famous cafes. Located at the north end of Bondi Beach, Speedos offers great cafe fare and excellent cofee. Super-friendly staff with a unique view of the beach. Highly recommended - we frequent it at least once a week thoughout the year.

“Kick-*^%ss coffee, ok service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Went for coffee with my friend yesterday(18th Feb) late afternoon. She ordered a Soy Cappuccino I a Large Skinny Latte, hers arrived at least four minutes before mine and the waitress appeared to be in no rush to deliver mine:/ The view is fantastic though
It seemed very expensive (at least a dollar more than most other places nearby) but the view is fantastic and this was KICK-*&^5SS coffee; had I known this in advance I would not have ordered a large one!
I was pleased with the flavour but the effect was that I was completely trembling by the time we left and was 'hyper for at least five hours afterwards. No complaints about the quality but service was a bit slack..

“Great way to start the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

7:00am not breath of wind, 24 degree C, a view of Bondi at its best and a hearty big breakfast. It does not get any better.
We enjoyed the food, the coffee, the smoothes and the view. The service was a bit slack, but hey, this is the beach not down-town.
Get there early as it gets very busy later on.

“Great little cafe overlooking Bondi Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Twice during the past week we have taken a break at Speedo's Cafe in North Bondi that has been going since 1928. What a great find! Mingling with the locals and visitors too we were able to look over the beach and relax over a leisurely breakfast and lunch. Great cafe food and customer service. A very popular spot judging by the number of patrons. Only drawback was coin operated parking @ $6 per hr - but I guess that is Sydney!
