The food going by looked incredible, unfortunately I only visited for coffee the 3 times I went there (plus a delicious slice!). The scrambled eggs looked so fresh with some fresh chill added.

Met up with some friends for breakfast and we were very impressed with the food. Plenty of vegetarian options and easy to cater for vegans. Our waiter was especially helpful. Produce and meat is advertised as locally sourced which is great and the coffee was fantastic too. Would love to go back.

Nicaraguan single origin coffee beans, locally roasted and served black, no sugar, was the best coffee of the road trip. Nice atmosphere too!

Very locals focused cafe with good food and coffe, but can be a bit snooty if you know what I mean, it's nice setting outside and has good music and all the trendy people go there, more upmarket sort of place.

A focus on locally grown and/or bred produce makes for sensational fare at Bay Leaf. Fresh, amazing ingredients expertly combined and thoughtfully presented. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful (narrowing this author's menu shortlist from five to the very perfect one - a special of borscht with beef cheek). The selection of teas are impressive. Coffee was a tad sour... More

The coconut and chia cup for breakfast was lovely. The texture, presentation and flavour were outstanding for a small but extremely popular cafe. The service was fast in such a busy cafe. A great place to with friends, I only wish that I liked coffee so that I could understand why people are fashionably hanging out of the windows drinking... More

Their popular green salad was fresh and healthy but the lamb dish was inedible. It was so chewy the knife couldn't cut through it let alone one's teeth. It has a nice vibe and the staff were very friendly. They were apologetic about the bad dish however we were still charged for the dish which was a shame since it... More

We enjoyed beautiful coffee here but it was served in very small cups. Delicious cakes to be had as well.

Coming from Melbourne we are used to good breakfast places but Bay Leaf could teach Melbourne a few things! The dishes were so creative and deliciously fresh. The Brekkie Greens was amazing. The coffee was really good as well. Service was fantastic also. Awesome place!
