No better place for breakfast

Great menu, great wait staff with great attitude! The food & coffee options are a delight to the taste buds. Try the falafel & poached eggs or the special scramble with an iced coffee & coconut milk... A great way to start the day

Been here a few times now and always good. Can sometimes be a bit of a wait for food in busy periods. Love the breakfast burritos and menu has some unique options which is good. Not the best coffee in Byron but still good.

Visited Bayleaf while staying in Suffolk park for two weeks and was graciously greeted upon entry by a smiling waiter who found us a table for two and provided us with our menus. The menu has a wide range of foods to suit all needs and a complex drinks menu with everything you could think of. I ordered poached eggs,... More

This place is a staple favourite every time I visit Byron - I always have to have brekkie here at least once (try the meat brekkie burrito). Not only is the food great, but so is the coffee! Trust me, you will not be disappointed with this place. Very cool.

This is a very busy and happening place so it was understandable that we first had to wait for a table to be free and then for our meals to arrive. The coffees came out promptly however and it was the best I had in Byron Bay. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. They were happy to be flexible as... More

I had a delicious breakfast here, but i have to say the place is prentious and the waiters are douche bag hipsters. I felt they where just pushing as out as quickly as possible. I saw one of the kitchen staff come out, pick flowers from right next to the entrance where dogs were peeing and sniffing around and next... More

After a swim at the beach it's always good to re-energise. For lunch, my family and I decided to eat at Bay Leaf. We had been here the previous year, yet we were unsure if the food was still as good. The menu was a bit pricey for the size of the food, but the salads were amazing. My only... More

We stopped one morning "just for coffee" and were overwhelmed with the range. Even The coffee had a tasting range which we tried and loved. Had to go back the next morning to try the breakfast which was fantastic. Ended up taking away delicious mini cakes both days on the way out. Very busy so a bit of a wait... More
