Too cool for school, the waiters at this venue are just the quietnessentially australian good looking surfers that are taking a shift before hitting the waves. Awesome food, incredibly busy. Go early or you will have to wait. It is directly under the sun and has a great terrace so it is great for morning chilling in the sun with... More

I know rent are high in Byron, but do are Sydney rents - so I just don't understand why they charge $6 for a coffee? they are $2.80 - $3.50 in Sydney Its a grubby hole in the wall and it really isn't justified and they are still serving kale based things on planks of wood - so last year!

We had breakfast and it was most enjoyable: we had the special Scrambled Eggs with Chilli and the Vegetarian Breakfast with Poached Eggs.....all of this washed down with great coffee. The meal was complimented by a good staff and some great 'old' music which made this a really casual and relaxing start to the day. A venue definitely worth considering... More

Had breakie and loved it. Good music too. The best though was the chai tea... The best I think I have ever had!. Served in a separate jug with loose leave tea leaves and spices with a sieve to pour into the cup. Delicious!!

After a few days of eating rich food, it was nice to have something healthier for breakfast. the mushroom toast was interesting with the kale, but the bread was really good. chai was presented really nice, and warms you up nicely in the morning, which was good.

Best chai in town! Food is delicious, though not a huge variety in the menu. What they do they do well though
