EPIC breakfast!

It's not often you can rock up to breakfast with 9 people to be told, sure no problem, then get seated & have coffee on the way in less than 5 mins. Then there's the menu, you know it's going to be good when you can't decide between 2/3 items. Want something healthy? They've got... read more

I had the summer museli...unbelievably good whilst the others all... More

We kept coming back for this delightful Byron gem. All meals were fantastic - but the Breakfast Breaky salad was amazing. Fresh food, quick service, great value, and awesome atmosphere - can't recommend enough.

This is hands down the best cafe in Byron, potentially my favourite cafe I have ever been too. I went here three times last week for breakfast as I just HAD to go again. I had the greens (with mushrooms and pea smash) one morning + decided to add pulled pork - best ever !! Every mouthful was so full... More

Went with a group of friends for breakfast & none of us could fault our meals. The brekky greens were amazing! Service was very efficient & staff were friendly. Perfect experience & will go back!

Everything besides the ice chai was amazing!! My partner had a blue corn dish , which he said was his best brekkie ever, and I had poached eggs and smashed avo on toast. My ice coffe was brilliant, some cold filtered coconut blend (I think?) with coconut cream. If it's a hot day and you like unsweetened coffee - go... More

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 the name) with marinated mushrooms,... 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
