Gertrude & Alice

Gertrude & Alice takes its name after two iconic American writers whose names are entwined forever: Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. One of the first shops to introduce the concept of eating and reading under the same roof, the bookstore has a friendly and warm atmosphere that aims to recreate the feeling of home. The bookstore has become a cherished neighborhood hub in Bondi Beach and is frequented by readers, writers, and coffee lovers from the local area and beyond.
