Friendly staff. Busy place. Nice sun soaked deck to have a morning brew. Coffee a bit weak but otherwise nice.

“My favourite place for coffee and breakfast in Byron Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Bay Leaf Cafe is situated in the main shopping precinct in Byron Bay and offers a wide variety of tasty breakfasts, juices and great coffee. With an eclectic and funky atmosphere, Bay Leaf is a great post-surf grind option for those in the know - loved it!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

This is the place to go for good coffee in Byron. Had a pork an polenta dish with runny eggs on top which was tastey.

“Relaxed and happy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

My friend and I were looking for a place for breakfast and found Bay Leaf.

There was a slight chill in the air as it was August and there was seating inside and out so we chose inside. We were lucky with a beautiful sunny day and the sun streamed in and warmed our backs through the large windows that were open to let the fresh air in.

The menu was very reasonably priced and had plenty of choices for everyone and there were homemade cakes and slices to choose from as well. You could tell they were homemade which made them all the more enticing. Sadly we were too full after brekky to try any.

My friend chose bircher muesli which she said was delicious and it looked it too. It was a good sized bowl with lots of muesli and yoghurt with chopped fresh fruits including strawberries and grated pear.

I had poached eggs on toast with smashed potatoes as an extra. The potatoes were really interesting with what I thought was vinegar or such to give them a zing. Very tasty and unexpected (to me anyway).

The coffee was excellent.

The staff all seemed to be really happy and wanting to be there which made for a relaxed atmosphere.

I would definitely go back... and try some of the cakes!
