That Chai! Oh My!

We went to Bayleaf Cafe twice during our 4-day trip for a late brekky. The menu is very creative and everything we had was delicious. The Socca dish was nice and light and fulfilling, all at the same time. The veg breakfast burrito was tasty, although quite heavy. We also had a dish (can't recall... read more

Without a doubt the best breakfast in Byron! Amazing coffee (decaf too), friendly staff and the Brekkie Greens with a side of pulled pork is the standout. It was our restaurant of choice for the duration of our stay. Thanks Dan and Nikki for creating such a fabulous place! I promise you will trying to to replicate these delicious dishes... More

Waited well over an hour and watched people come and go, then not a single food order was correct, coffees were missing, people got poached eggs not fried, too little of some orders and too many of others, extra side orders were not added to at least a few people's breakfast. Yes there were 10 of us but it was... More

This Cafe was funky, fresh and fab. Our breakfast was delicious and the coffee (I take straight espresso) was the best I tasted on our trip to Byron. The service was super friendly and it was obvious by the familiarity of the clientele that this is a Byron staple - always good to eat where the locals eat. Get yourselves... More

Byron is full of trendy or hip but Bay Leaf has, at least in my experience, the most friendly and attentive staff. That isn't all: I had the best chai tea, a yummy glutenfree brownie and on another occasion eggs/avocado on glutenfree toast, which no one would have thought to be glutenfree bread. A trendy place with good food is... More

They have the specialty filter coffee that come with a tasting notes that goes like this: "Delicate, floral, orange, blossom, peach, lady grey w a silky body..." Interesting presentation and the taste of the coffee is top notch! Try it, it is good!

The coffee is great, but be prepared to wait - these guys are not in a hurry! Food is fresh and delicious, the vibe is excellent. The price is to be expected in Byron. Be prepared to accept that this place is always busy, and appears to be a hang out spot in town.

Nice cool place, great coffee. Layout of the premises is nice. Just wished they closed later. It is impossible to have a good late coffee in Byron Bay...
