We had 2 salads - thai beef and chili squid and both were great. They could tell my son was starving so they brought his food out first. Good service.

We thought we needed sustenance before we started the walk to the Lighthouse and this seemed to be the perfect place to take a break. The view from the deck was peaceful and everyone seemed very relaxed. We ordered a selection of sweet treats - the blueberry muffin, a blueberry tart and a chocolate brownie. The banana smoothie was delicious... More

We often come here when we're in Byron Bay. The cafe is in a great position that overlooks the beach and just a few steps from the sand. The owners are super friendly and the food is always excellent. Also a few nice wines and barista coffee. The perfect beach cafe but a little hidden amongst the beach trees. 5... More

Went seeking a good breakfast in a nice place. We found it at The Pass Cafe. The meal was very satisfying, and so were the coffees. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Post wedding breakfast with the wedding party and the food and excellent service totally outweighed the hour it took to park the car. So park in town and take a walk up to the Lighthouse, you won't regret it.

Love the amount given and the quality of the food here. Fish&chip came with fresh coleslaw and some green veggies while prawn avocado salad was so fresh and the prawn is well-grilled. Strawberry milkshake is also a good choice to cool down an afternoon. Worth a try if you come to cape byron or watergos.
