Cosy and feel good vibe. The bircher muesli is by far THE best and brekkie there is the most amazing place to start your day in Bondi, but let's not forget their very healthy yet filling salads and soups with a nice glass of red wine (good selection) for dinner.

A nice Café to hang out on cloudy or rainy days. Cosy inside with lots of oppurtunities to sit down, grab a coffee and read a book from all the book shelves. A bit expensive but I still like the atmosphere!

I guess this is supposed to be a trendy spot, but as for the used book portion, it is indeed overpriced. In addition, there are new books for quite high prices being sold alongside. Forget trying to exchange/sell a book of your own - quite particular as I was told it is "close to the holidays and we are focusing on our new items". Their prerogative...

Unimpressed.

Had a late lunch here as it was easy and convenient to where I parked. Had the salmon salad which while simple was tasty and quite a good size.

Also found the coffee to be pretty good too.

A small but nice used book store in the Bondi area. Book selection is very limited but I think the cutesy factor attracts people here. After going to places like Powell's Books I would classify this as merely quaint. And they serve some basic cafe food. In retrospect, I wouldn't bother visiting this place.
