Great food, but could not talk over the live musci

Great food fast service, pleasant wait staff, but the little song bird in the corner was so loud that we could not hold a conversation. The volumn appeared to be turned down a little when we asked. We will be back for the amazing calamari.

Worst breakfast ever. Ordered eggs on toast, side of bacon, sausage, hash brown and mushrooms. As well as a juice and coffee. Drinks arrived promptly, juice was nice. Coffee was full of coffee bean granules and very bitter. Breakfast arrived 1 hour later!!! During this hour wait no one acknowledged us at all, nor did wait staff tend to our... More

Had a coffee here earlier today - it was really good. Came back this evening for a glass of wine and a dessert. The chocolate mousse cake was divine and the peach and strawberry crumble was different but really good. Dessert was great but to top it off there was a great female vocalist with her guitar. Love the atmosphere... More

We had dinner at Mokha when we visited Byron Bay in August. It's a cute little restaurant with a rustic atmosphere. The crumbed fish we had from the special menu was one of the yummiest fish I've ever eaten. The service was great and we enjoyed the free live music that evening.

After a big day exploring the region, we stopped here for a great coffee and watch the world go by. We even spotted a lovely actor named Colin Friels :) he was enjoying the ambience also. Lovely spot to sip and enjoy.
