Bondi Harvest’s other location is in (of course) Bondi Beach, and their little outpost in Santa Monica, where the windows are always open, definitely has a laid-back, surf-shack vibe. There long communal tables, exposed wood walls, and actual surf boards stacked in the corner. The menu specializes in brunch, with granola-topped acai bowls, avocado toast, and light salads (we love the heritage grain), and great coffee, but the best order is unequivocally the breakfast sandwich. Pick up some Lucas’s paw paw ointment and a jar of Vegemite—both cult Australian products—on your way out.
