Many people had recommended this to me. Great location if you are staying in backpackers and I think the YHA next door?? Lots of locals in and passing by on the great street front that it has and a great buzz about the place. Coffee a little strong for me, but easily dealt with - add hot water! Breakfast good... More

We breakfasted several times at this Cafe during our recent trip to Byron Bay. The coffee is the best in the bay by far and the food was very tasty.

Had coffee or lunch on a number of occasions and was never disappointed. Wish we could take their chef home with us.

We went to this cafe for Breakfast and coffee. I had eggs with soldiers and my girlfriend had the quinoa bircher muesli. My eggs were perfect and the muesli served with fruit was also highly recommended. The best part though was the coffee, grunty flavour, well made and not too hot...

The morning walk back from Main Beach was highlighted by a visit to the best cafe in Byron. The coffee was exquiite
