The days start early in Bondi. Get out shortly after sunrise and you'll spot numerous surfers, swimmers and people on their way to yoga. And of course, walkers and runners tackling the picturesque Bondi to Bronte route.

By mid-morning the area's cafes swell with people enjoying the salty breeze and refuelling post-exercise. The menus mostly lean healthy – don't expect to find too many burgers, or desserts masquerading as breakfast dishes. Kombucha, fresh juices and acai bowls are much more Bondi's style. Here are our favourite spots to take it all in.
