One of the cafes you have to hit in Byron

Both times I've been to Byron I made myself a regular at Bay Leaf. The food is great, the coffee excellent and the space is wide and open so you kinda feel outside wherever you sit, which, let's face it, is perfect for the great weather of Byron.

Healthy and trendy. Coffee was surprisingly disappointing. The food was amazing, come hungry though; massive servings. But I could take my leftovers home with me.

Came here 6 months ago for a coffee and was repulsed by the curdled cup of something that was served to me. Then i had to argue and appeal to not pay for the slop. This time i was asked to meet there for a business meeting. I reluctantly ordered another Soy Flat white telling the waitress that i was... More

The best chai tea I have tasted anywhere on the planet! And the coffee is great too. They use single origin beans for their coffee.

Great, bustling cafe that I stumbled across by accident. So glad I did! Nice interior, good coffee (although was mildly embarrassed to order a skim latte and be told they 'only stock full cream' milk - uh, just a little too hipster for me!!), had a simple brekkie of poached eggs with avocado which was lovely and ordered an orange...

Really enjoyed our breakfast here on a recent trip to Byron. Not the cheapest place mind you but if you want a varied menu to choose from and friendly staff you'll enjoy tucking yourself into a corner and eating the morning away. Totally relaxed feel ,everyone byronally happy, good tunes and food samplings that differ from the normal fare. Check... More

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!
