“Lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We din't discover Succulent Cafe until our last day in Byron Bay. On our next trip there, it will be the first place we have breakfast. The cafe is clean, the service excellent and very friendly and our breakfast excellent.

“Great Omelettes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Enjoyed a good breakfast here; their omelettes are excellent, first rate, moist (not overcooked) and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient.

“Excellent food, lovely atmosphere and dog friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Succulent Cafe is located under the Byron Quarter holiday apartment complex, which is set slightly back from Byron Bay's busiest streets. But only slightly - it's just a five minute walk, if that, to the beach and main shopping area. This means it's easier to find a park. And a table too on a busy day.

We were last there on a Byron market day. It was great to be able to find a table outside and get our dog settled. To find a dog friendly cafe in Byron Bay is sometimes hard even for locals, so we are very grateful to the team at Succulent Cafe for always making each and every member of our group feel welcome.

I love the atmosphere and decor at Succulent. The Middle Eastern brass light fittings. The tiled tables that are cool under my palms on hot days. The smoothed wooden chairs and the pile of bright oranges near the kitchen. The way the Byron Quarter's small pool (visible through the cafe's louvered windows) throws pretty reflections on the cafe's louvres on sunny days.

Then there is the art. This last visit there was the delight of reconnecting with art works by Christian Palmer. As these included two large art works featuring dogs, they reinforced the feeling dog owners were welcome.

The menu features local produce in well designed dishes that allow a great deal of choice. There is always a specials board. Our last brunch included excellent coffee, perfect scrambled eggs with scrumptious sausages, banana bread, blueberry and macadamia muffins absolutely stuffed with fresh berries and nuts, and a mushroom, leek and truffle oil omelette that was very special indeed.

It's Byron prices, so sadly we can't go every time we are in Byron. But we would be there every day if we were on holiday :)

“50minutes for eggs!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Food was good but service and attitude was very poor.. We were a table of 5 and after ordering noticed they served tables of 2 who ordered after us!! They did come to advise us after 40 minutes that we were next in line, to then come back again and say we'd be waiting longer ss another table was served again in front of us. After all that we didn't really enjoy eating our meal and to top it off our bill had 10 extra items on it.. Poor form - you'd think a couple of coffees could have been comped?!?
