Heart Cafe

Meet up, sit, eat, relax and enjoy beautiful fresh food and coffee served from the heart, in the heart of Bondi. Our food is fresh, wholesome and locally sourced with each dish reflecting the unique flavours, colours and lifestyle of Bondi. Our single estate, premium coffee is brought to you by local Eastern Suburbs coffee purveyors, Gypsy Espresso.

Heart Cafe is Bondi’s first social enterprise cafe, where diners can enjoy delicious, local dishes while helping to bridge the gap from unemployment to mainstream employment for some of Sydney’s most disadvantaged young people. Heart Cafe is a place for everyone.

Open daily, 7am – 4pm

In 2019, Wayside Chapel in partnership with UTS released the Managing Hybrid Releases Guidebook, using examing Heart Cafe as a social enterprise. You can download the guidebook here.
