This time we were there for lunch and it certainly lived up to expectations.The chicken wings were a... read more

We 'settled' on this place last night after running out of options with others either being too busy or not the menu we wanted, but we're so glad we did! I had the carbonara which was one of the best I've ever had - it was much lighter and less cheesy than I was expecting, and full of flavour! My... More

Absolutely divine cheesecake with vanilla ice cream one evening around closing time, the owner happily sent me off with my gift in a box and I was able to indulge when I got back to my lodgings. Helpful friendly staff with great service and an excellent dessert. No complaints.

We have been travelling in Oz for two months so far and this is the first 'bad' meal we have had. Ordered chicken caesor salad each and a bowl of chips to eat with them. Coffees were fine. Chicken was so tough couldn't eat it. Clearly re-heated. Eggs ice cold, chorizo greasy, dressing watery. Had to ask where the chips... More

We made trip to Byron Bay on last Wednesday May 8. Because of Easter holiday most of the places were packed. We managed to find free table in Mokha and we didn't regret. Perfect service from first till last minute. Girl with black hair and jeans skirt was very friendly, attentive but not too pushy. Atmosphere with live music (... More

Despite the large number of competing cafés in the area, Mokha can be relied on for yummy breakfasts, good coffee and friendly service. Would definitely recommend it

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.

Mokhas is one of the few cafes in town that actually sell coffees at a reasonable price, service was good and so was the coffee, I had a Latte, my cousins had a green tea and cappuccino + chocolate coconut brownie slice. I like Mokhas, its busy but a great place to people watch and lots of shops around right... More
