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

The main streets in Byron are super busy around Christmas time, so this is a nice way to get away. We had no problems with parking and a reasonably good lunch: friendly staff, reasonable prices and ok food (not spectacular, but decent). Thry have high chairs and a proper change table, but be warned, the high chairs have no straps... More

Relaxed atmosphere and great parking. This cafe is set up high surrounded by trees and with a lovely ocean breeze sweeping across the deck. Great for just coffee or for a special occasion lunch or breakfast.

Recently had lunch here with my elderly mother on a week day. What a lovely find after our horrible morning tea experience at the Byron beach cafe. We wished we had just come straight to the Pass cafe! We sat outside overlooking the bush and the sea and had a delicious lunch of nachos and a burger. The staff were... More

Breakfast at the Pass Cafe should be a must-do for locals and visitors alike. Set among tall trees a stones throw from the water, it makes a great apre-surf or swim spot to gird the loins for more adventures. The resident bush turkeys are entertaining. The coffee is good and strong. My partner and I ordered omelettes which at $18... More
