This spot is an occasional Sunday Lunch spot with the family. We go for the tofu burgers - they are delicious. Always willing to accommodate 7 of us turning up and ordering the same thing.

We called into The Pass Cafe for a light lunch after a hot and strenuous walk to/from the local lighthouse. It is a lovely spot to enjoy the sea breeze and meet some of the local bird life (but don't feed them or let them steal food from your plate). We ordered two cold beers (local brew, cold and lovely),... More

We'd been to the Pass ( a gorgeous beach) 3 times before we realised that tucked away in the trees close by was this lovely environmentally friendly cafe. You can sit on the balcony and order a meal or light dishes and enjoy a glass of wine in a quiet place enjoying the bush and obscured beach views. Service is... More

Service with a smile; the Brekkie Bruschetta impressive and the coffee pretty damn good. The husband had the bacon and eggs and just to test the cafe "do you have Worcestershire sauce" host Peter brought... More

I have always enjoyed the Pass Café, it has been a landmark in Byron for great coffee, dining in a natural outdoor setting. I cant enough of being outdoors on a gorgeous summer day, sipping coffee and sampling one of their delicious cakes, I had the thai coconut cake which was dense and rich and fabulous with my latte. Sitting... More
