Small coffees, but nice views
The Crabbe Hole with their Mothersky coffee

The Crabbe Hole has a beautiful location with views overlooking the Bondi Icebergs Pool towards Bondi Beach and out to sea.

The quality of the coffee, which is from the Australian Mothersky brand, is good and perfectly acceptable. The price for a coffee is also not unreasonable at $4.50, especially given the prime real estate location.

However, the coffee is of an extremely disappointing size for those having it in the café (takeaway sizes appear to be slightly larger). When taking into account the tiny size of the coffees, this place does not represent value for money. You might need to buy two of their coffees for $9 to get the equivalent of a decent-sized coffee.

On my visit, the young girl who initially served me at the counter was polite and helpful enough. If you are eating in, you are given a small number to put on your table and your coffee and or food will be brought out to you.

After finishing my coffee (which didn't take long as there was so little of it to drink), I was working away on my laptop with my jacket over my head and my laptop to provide shade for the screen when I heard a voice asking if I wanted another coffee. I said I was okay, thanks and then was given words to the effect of "This is actually a café seating area". He then walked off.

I was not sure exactly what his issue was; whether he objected to me working on a laptop there or thought that I should leave now that I had finished my coffee, but whatever he was on about it certainly didn't make me feel welcome or wanted.

The Crabbe Hole claims on its website to be open from 7am to 3pm on weekdays and until 5pm at the weekends, although some Google reviews claim this is not always the case as they occasionally close early when the weather is inclement.
