The Favourite Child

When the name Bondi is mentioned, most will think of sun-soaked beaches, tourist buses, attractive locals, white pointers and a few different clichéd summer anthem songs. A specialty coffee house is not what would come to mind; however, The Favourite Child is bringing a wholly different flavour to what is probably the most famous beach setting in the world.

Modelled after the classic basement New York bar meets the trendy Bohemian setting of east London, you will find The Favourite Child a succinct mix of designer class and street attitude. Childhood collectables line the walls, a signed Hanson guitar acts as a doorstop, and in the corner sits an original arcade table, featuring none other than Pac Man.

Coffee is the forefront of the business, offering a wide range of blends and seasonal single origins, specially selected and roasted by Delano Coffee. Customers can have their coffee prepared in a variety of methods, from the classic espresso based milk coffees, to filter coffee and the unconventional, like cold drip and syphon.

The espresso coffees are prepared using the latest multi-boiler Dalla Corte Pro machine, a hand crafted high-end espresso system from Milan, which gives the baristas an extraction second to none. The filter coffee is prepared using a Trifecta, and I would recommend sampling the variety of seasonal single origins on display. I tried an organic Columbian Caturra that featured a rounded medium body with high notes of berry and caramel. Customers can also purchase the coffee beans dry and have them ground to their specific needs, or as whole beans.

In addition, the café offers a food menu comprised of pastries and seasonal hand crafted café style dishes that are fresh, flavourful and unpretentious.

The Favourite Child is open daily from 7am –5pm and is definitely worth a visit.
