The location is good, just across the road from the beach. The inside of the cafe is quite old and dingy looking but the outside eating area is pleasant. Service is OK. Servings are generous but we were disappointed with the quality of the food for the prices charged. Fish and chips came with lemon and tartare sauce but no... More

This café is tied in with the restaurant Il Puntino next door but the menus are different and Gabby's appears to be a bit cheaper. Sit at any of the tables outside and providing there are no cars parked in the way you will enjoy a view over the iconic Bondi Beach. Meals are fairly basic but plenty of food... More

Views of Bondi beach and the headland. Friendly service although I had to stop the waiter from taking my drink before I finished it. We all ordered on the same table so when it came time to pay we asked to split the bill but this wasn't allowed we then saw the sign to say they don't split bills. That's... More

Had a lovely breakfast at Gabbys overlooking Bondi Beach. Great views, friendly service, food tasted great and came out quickly and all for a reasonable price.

Was looking forward to a delicious breakfast after (watching) the City to Surf. This cafe is located in a fantastic location overlooking the beach, and the menu looked promising. Ordered the vegetarian breakfast which was very average. And we were told they had run out of soy milk (for coffee)! It must've been their busiest day of the year -... More

There were plenty of bad reviews for Gabby's but decided to try it nonetheless. The service was ok. The guy standing outside playing on his phone while waiting for someone to walk in. He was friendly enough but didn't seem to really want to be there. I ordered the vegetarian breakfast which was somewhere between pk and good. Pretty basic... More

Decided to have breakfast at this cafe on a Sunday morning. The location is prime - opposite Bondi Beach. The Breakfast itself was nothing to rave about. Very basic bacon & eggs. On the boring side. Staff could have been a little more inviting and friendly. When i paid the bill i noticed a 10% service charge added to the... More

Average food at best. However, the street side tables overlooking the beach are the reason we are there. None of the restaurants on this street are for foodies. It is all cheap, fast, fried food for beach goers.

We ducked out of the wet weather to have breakfast here at Bondi yesterday morning. I had the lot, and my partner had the classic breakfast. Service was quick, courteous and friendly. The food was ok, but nothing special. Nice location and good view. The coffee was alright, but served in small cups, not as hot as I'd like.
