- This unique little bookshop/cafe, named after Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein, is a real find, even on Bondi's packed-with-cafes Hall Street. The cafe counter is squeezed in at the front of the shop, behind a row of welcoming chairs lining the street and will rustle up great eats and drinks including the ever popular soy chai latte. Everything about this place has been well thought through and seems to fit a divine blueprint of the best place to read in the world, with a long plush sofa, page-lined bathrooms, vintage teacups and saucers, and every single book you should have ever read, ever. Classics abound and so do readers as the vibe is laid back, practically begging you to pull up a rickety chair, select a book from the shelves and read, read, read!
