With its sun-washed fit-out and iconic beachfront setting, Bondi Pavilion embodies the suburb’s beach culture. Glory Days – which counts Glorietta in North Sydney and The Woolpack in Redfern as sibling venues – was a cornerstone of the Pavilion’s $48 million restoration, a project that took two years to complete.

The glorious all-day diner was worth the wait. From umbrella-shaded patio seating guests can watch the drama of Bondi’s famous surf. But even without the setting, the menu – which looks to California for influences – stands alone.

That means smoothies and acai bowls alongside a breakfast burrito with fresh jalapenos, scrambled eggs, Oaxaca cheese, bacon, black bean salsa and tater tots. Items such as the Goodness Bowl – with charred seasonal vege, avocado, kale, roasted tomato, brown rice, grains and a poached egg – are available all day.

Meanwhile, the lunch menu is all about classics like oysters served with lemon and mignonette; a club chicken sandwich and pasta such as lamb ragu pappardelle.

The fit-out is breezy, featuring shades of terracotta and natural wood, with shapes and materials that lean into the pavilion’s Spanish-inspired architecture. There are 80 seats across the indoor and outdoor spaces, and a takeaway window for the time-poor pumps out blends and single origins from Stitch Coffee.
