“Best coffee in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

We went to Bayleaf on our last 2 trips to Byron and its definitely the best coffee in town. It can be pretty busy and usually a wait for a table, but its worth it for the coffee! Brekkie is good, choc brownies are excellent - but the star here is the coffee!

“Good single origin coffee, fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Best coffee we had on our wet weekend in Byron; just back today. Bay Leaf had a surcharge for Queen's Birthday, but who doesn't these days (Macca's I suppose, but do you REALLY want to drink their coffee)?

Coffee's, freshly squeezed apple juice, hot chocolate, soft scrambled eggs, and eggs Bene without soggy muffins underneath. Didn't skimp on the hollandaise either. Good music and a bunch of happy, friendly staff. We'll be back.

“Bay Leaf Cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

If musical chairs and sharing tables is your thing these guys will fit you in. You may barely have room to raise your cup to drink but the coffee and the atmosphere are worth it.

“GREAT coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

One of my favourite things about Australia was how serious they take their coffee. I mean I don’t think I had a bad cup of coffee the whole time I was there… I think I have told you this already… but Bayleaf is a great example of an Ozzie coffee shop.

It really seemed like it was the place to be and even though it is teeny it was always packed.
They used coffee ground a couple of streets away.

I love the communal space and the food looked amazing, go pay them a visit if you’re in town and get an iced coffee (it has ICE CREAM in it!)
