“Bondi Icon”
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”
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”
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”
Reviewed January 26, 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!

“Best egg whites in the world... The beef sausages are just beautiful !”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

So... Why would you go anywhere else ?

View over the beach at Bondi.....best coffee, fantastic menu , efficient staff and a great atmosphere.

We went here twice on our stay at Bondi Beach and simply loved it.

Check la Quinta before you pay. 2 visits 2 mistakes. But they were honest mistakes !
