“Spanish omelette - yum”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We left our hotel in Byron Bay to continue our drive to Brisbane, wanting to stop on the way for a hearty breakfast. In central BB we came upon Why Not and we were glad we did. The décor is clean, comfortable and contemporary with a separate lounging area with sofas. The staff were friendly and helpful. We both had their special of the day – Spanish omelette, and it was wonderful – tasty, and plentiful. Washed down with a couple of cups of delicious coffee. Well worth a stop.

“Myeh”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The coffee was great! The food good-ish. The 'tude out of control. As long as you keep in mind that you are mere customers, and the servers are gods, you'll be fine.

“Good food even with the wait”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

When had a brunch there, the make your own type, and the food was excellent. The orange juice fresh, and the service good and they have free wifi. There was an issue with our order which did not go through to the kitchen so we waited quite a while.. but finally once the issue noticed, it came fast and we enjoyed some very good food.
