Three Blue Ducks
Dine with the Ducks
In Bronte Beach, just south of Bondi, Three Blue Ducks draws a queue of beachgoers every weekend for its famous scrambled eggs with black sausage and orange yogurt pancakes—which sell out fast so get here early. Besides the friendly staff, the graffiti-and-indie-music vibe, and the crew of good-looking surfer mates who own the place, Three Blue Ducks is beloved for its honest and sustainable approach to food and drinks. The tea, Single Origin Roasters coffee, and eggs are organic; the sourdough comes from Iggy's a few doors down; the beef is grass-fed and raised in Tasmania; and seafood is hand-picked from the market every morning. Produce is as local as possible—some of it coming from the restaurant's own back garden, which features fruit trees, chickens (called chooks in Australia), herbs, and a bee hive. Check the pastry cabinet on your way out; you won't be able to resist house-made muffins like the chocolate macadamia nut. And if you love the food as much as the locals do, buy the Ducks' cookbook, which came out in 2013.
