Absolutely worthwile to go here. The staff is friendly, fast and competent. The food is delicious! The only thing is, that they are almost too fast in clearing away the dishes. As soon as your cutlery touches the plate.

Stopped in late one evening for coffee as there was a singer playing out the front we had heard earlier. Great coffee served by very polite and happy staff. Sat and listened to the music and soaked up the atmosphere. Looking at the food others were eating and checking the menu that looked good too. Recommended. And we ended up... More

After checking out of our accommodation we needed somewhere for lunch before heading to the airport. Mokha looked pleasant and had a shady outdoor area so we decided to try it. I ordered a sourdough toasted Vego sandwich which was delicious and so was my iced coffee, which was made with real coffee. My friend was very satisfied with the... More

Nice little cafe on Lawson Street. They have free range eggs on the menu too. Enjoyed a nice healthy breakfast which included poached eggs, spinach and sourdough, along with tea and coffee. It's not a big cafe and the seating is a little tight, but the food is good and the service was polite and efficient. Nice atmosphere too.

We visited this place on the recommendation of friends who holiday in Byron Bay every year. It is unpretentious but offers great food at a very reasonable price. My fettucine carbonara was delicious, as was my partner's tofu salad. We enjoyed the local musician playing out the front- added a lot of atmosphere.

One of the best breakfasts ever! Their menu is creative and adventurous- not your run-of-the-mill bacon and eggs place. I ordered the homemade pumpkin bread topped with cherry tomato confit, sliced avocado, sunflower sprouts and feta cheese topped with the most PERFECTLY poached egg I've ever had. It was moorish and filling! (My date had the salmon eggs Benedict and... More

Took a seat with my daughter, got met by an awkward kinda guy, he gave us menus and uncomfortably hovered over us waiting for our drink orders; I like to think that I speak quite clearly but he asked me to repeat myself over and over and over again for each of my requests, I almost starting to think that...
