When Harry Met Bondi
“Harry’s Bar & Dining does its best to honour locally sourced produce by creating honest and elegant fare and using fresh and organic ingredients where possible. The menus created by Chef, Bryan O’Callaghan reflect the availability of produce, incorporating house made items and unique flavours, allowing all elements to shine.”
Every time I've driven past this cafe it's always been busy and today was no exception. Parking in Bondi is more than a challenge and the Festival of the Winds combined with the Sunday Markets made it extra tricky in finding a spot within the same postcode. Service is switched on and needs to be to keep up with the popularity. They're pretty friendly as well. Golden Latte ($5) with house-made almond milk, tumeric, ginger, honey was very nice and had a sort of almost carrot taste to it for me. @plus1guest was pretty happy with his Latte ($4) and the Purple Reign Smoothie ($9.50) with lots of healthy blueberries, banana, almond milk and tahini.
Ricotta Hotcakes (menu states allow 15 mins) with blueberries, double cream, lemon balm & maple ($18) is probably one of Sydney's most instagrammed hotcakes. So pretty and a yummy soft moist hotcake although they should say Hotcake not Hotcakes on the menu. Would have loved a bit more maple syrup on the side to pour over. They say allow 15 mins but took over 30 mins so keep in mind when they're really busy. Coconut Chia Pudding ($18) with house-made granola & berries was well-presentated. Very nice granola although I found it too dry overall as a dish and would have preferred with a cup of milk or yoghurt to add some much needed moisture or even some juicy poached pears or caramelised peaches would work really well to help lubricate the palate. We had a 30+ mins wait today for a table but next time I'll have to remember you can book via dimmi to hopefully save some time.
