Welcome to Drake Eatery in Bondi

Aug 16, 2017  ·  3 min read

When I hear Drake I used to think of a dude with a bad haircut and a million screaming girls. Now, my vision has changed… to something much more appealing!

Drake Eatery our favourite little Curlewis Street gem.

Drake is perched on the corner, just a block from the QT Bondi lobby and couldn’t be more appealing at this time of year, which is why it seemed like a no brainer to have as another star of our Re-Balance in Bondi Package.

With the winter sun beaming through its windows from dawn till dusk there is no better spot for brekky or lunch in the cooler months. Though when the candles are lit, Drake morphs into a great little dinner venue with a wine list that will be sure to knock your socks off.

Drake is the brainchild of superstar chef and local smiling legend Ian Oakes. Ian and the team focus on using locally sourced sustainable produce to create a Modern Australian menu that bursts with flavour.

The brekky menu is healthy and with Ian’s individual flair isn’t just your everyday café menu. If you are feeling adventurous the Brekky Burrata with Mandarin, Fennel, Pistachio, Red Witlof and White Balsamic is a winner, it’s one of those dishes that leaves you completely mind blown as to how all those flavours can work so well on one plate. But if you’re more of a classic breakfast kinda’ kid then the Avocado, Lime, Black Pepper, Coriander on Chargrilled Sourdough has your name written all over it. This dish is also one of the two dishes on our exclusive QT Re-Balance menu inclusive of a juice and coffee.

The Lunch/Dinner menu is somethin’ else – filled with produce perfectly prepared and tailored to the season, choosing what to get will not be an easy task, Oakes has even found a way to make Brussel sprouts taste out of this world. Picking a wine to accompany your food will be an even harder task, so we advise you leave that part to the professionals.

Drake is a favourite among all the QT Bondi staff and we’ve always had a great relationship with the team, so you’ll be taken extra good care of when mentioning you’re staying with us here at the QT.
