A great place for breakfast before or after heading for a surf at one of Byron's best beaches. The meals are generous and the service excellent.

Out of the way and out of town but worth the walk along the beach to get there. The food was well done and plentiful. The coffee was the best I've had so far this trip (10 days so far). Feels like your eating in a tree house. Clean washrooms. Just steps to the beach.

Magpies & Kookaburras watch & wait in trees so I suggest sit further inside if you are worried may take your food. Staff will warn you about the... More

It' nice to find great service when you are tired from a tough walk. The staff here are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The food is fresh and the serves are plentiful. Great cold drinks too. We had a Kookaburra serenade us too.

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

Beautiful location in a bush setting overlooking the beach. Fantastic service, warm friendly and quick. Delicious zucchini fritters, scrambled eggs, BLAT and smoothies. Highly recommend.

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

We wanted to walk somewhere and have a great breakfast!! The Pass Cafe certainly fulfilled that request. Very friendly staff and when i asked for something not on the menu they were more than happy to help!! Great place.
