The Cafe is not in Byron Bay It is 20 klms away. An ordinary standard small portioned breakfast will set you back $150 for 4 people. My wife bought a drink at the cafe and had to pay an extra 50 cents for a simple straw. The whole place reeks of greed and rip off. Tiny portions and nothing special.... More

We were taken to the Harvest Cafe on our way to a wedding in Byron Bay, and were delighted - the location is stunning, just off the Pacific Highway, in a lovely old building which has been thoughtfully laid out. Service was top notch throughout, with a knowledgeable, enthusiastic maitre d who ensured we had a great lunch. Food was... More

We had a recommendation to try Harvest on our visit to the North Coast region. This destination is far removed from the traffic mayhem of Byron, being located on the Old Pacific Highway. We went for lunch. There lovely old dwelling on Newrybar main street, with classic expansive verandahs is the gastronomic centrepiece of this complex. A 100 yr old... More

This is still the best breakfast around. I reckon it must be nearly 10 years since we first came across Harvest while holidaying at Broken Head. When we were there again in September, I was reminded of how silly we are for not making the time to visit more often - it is a class act...

Was made to feel that we we're bring done a favour by being allowed to come for brunch. Food was average but on the expensive side. Won't be back anytime soon.

We ate on the balcony and enjoyed the ambience and food. The bar is lovely along with the staff. There is a verandah out front and a lovely side garden for smokers.

Newrybar is a small village about 15mins from Byron. The Harvest Cafe was packed. MAKE a RESERVATION. The queue for people without reservations was huge. We had a shoulder of lamb for two that came out on a serving board with all the roast vegetables but all done with special touches. The lamb just fell apart and the whole thing... More

Having heard there was a new chef in town we decide to re-visit Harvest. We had a booking and were off to a good start, and then, the wait..... deja vu all over again, as we watched table after table get served their food. Our waitress was MIA and it felt like all of the staff had dropped a mogadon... More

I've been to Harvest a number of times and never have I felt so unwelcome; so much so I didn't want to stay there to celebrate my birthday. Admittedly we didnt have a reservation, there were tables available but no-one seemed enthusiastic about receiving new customers. My husband encouraged me to stay when a table was found. The waitress, Danni... More

We went to a wedding here and arrived just before the reception was starting. The staff were so welcoming and allowed us to sit and served us with no problem. The setting was gorgeous and the food selection was amazing (part credit to the bride and also the staff)! I will definitely go back as a diner and would recommend!
