Shop 1/144 Glenayr Street, Bondi Beach, NSW, 2026
We’re starting the weekend early and stroll into Deli Bottega for a Friday brunch before hitting Bondi Beach. While the shore is round the corner, you can’t tell it from inside this cafe. It’s a quaint place which crosses cute decor with a certain European romance. The staff are welcoming and chilled, and their bubbly nature froths over whenever a familiar face drops in.
Sitting outside, we settle into a cosy bench at the front of the cafe. First up, however, the menu features an array of Mod Oz favourites with a gourmet European twist. They even offer takeaway picnic hampers if you need to hit the beach, pronto.
My espresso is intense and sharp, awakening both palate and mind. There’s a woody aroma with spicy flavours carried through the dense body. The aftertaste is crisp, leaving a dry winey sensation across the palate. My latte, on the other hand, has a mild chocolate undertone and is both creamy and robust. Partnered with a brunch of truffled eggs and toast, this is how all weekends should start.
