Came here with a group of friends, the food was hit and miss and overpriced. The lamb salad and eggs were nice. But the Socca was so terrible 2 out of our group couldn't eat it. When the waitress asked if the meals were okay and we brought up the Socca, the waitress made an "aww" noise in a baby... More

We visited twice here for breakfast and although busy, staff were very friendly and there was no sign of stress from anyone. Our waitress still took time for a quick chat which as visitors we really appreciated. Food menus were exceptional and extremely healthy. We loved it!

Been here for breakfast a couple of times: the menu is varied, including vegetarian and gluten free options, and the food is delicious. Every time we've been (on the weekend or school holidays) it has been crowded and I think there have been other times we've tried to go and haven't been able to get a table (although the takeaway...

This is a really popular place in Byron Bay for breakfast and coffees. Be prepared to wait for a table during peak morning time, but it is definitely worth the wait. They have a unique menu so come here if want something different, not the place to come if you are craving something traditional like eggs benedicts. Their coffee is... More

Really enjoyed two meals at Bay Leaf. The food is fresh, creative and healthy. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Only complaint is that they really are on par (if not ahead) of Sydney prices, which can be surprising for somewhere outside of the capital... but this is Byron, and touristy, so I suppose it is to be expected.

What a fantastic cafe! The staff are incredibly friendly and the whole vibe is incredibly relaxed and comfortable. The breakfast is absolutely standout. Easily one of the best breakfasts I've ever had! A definite must! Coffee was pretty good too, I think they use a local roaster. It's a little on the pricier side for breakfast - but totally worth...

This is a small cafe but always full.We had lunch here. The focus is on healthy eating and we enjoyed the experience. The owner and staff were friendly .Nice to sit out on the side walk and watch the world go by.Will be first on our list when we get a chance to go back to Byron Bay.
