If you do brunch in Byron Bay, make sure you do at Bay Leaf Cafe! The restaurant offers a good choice of options - all very fresh and healthy! Decent coffee as well. Bay Leaf Cafe is probably the 'the best place to be seen' in Byron Bay! Just be prepared to pay a little bit more, it's not cheap!... More

Had to have breakfast because it is always so crowded I wanted to try it out. I wasn't disappointed. Probably the coolest place in town with waiters being super relaxed and people having to share tables. The food and coffee was exceptional. Yummy breakfast with heaps of options using lots of local organic yummy ingredients. Not your usual eggs benni... More

The Bay Leaf was everything I was looking for. A menu of super fresh produce, catering for both vegans and meat eaters. They specialise in breakfast salads, but are put together so they're perfect for any time of the day. The dishes are so beautiful, you don't want to mess them up! They are always busy, but happily cater for... More

So you'll find that there are always plenty of people here and usually a waiting list. Though they will take your name down and seat you at the takeaway section next door until a table is ready. This didn't take too long, maybe 15 minutes before they came to notify us. The staff were very friendly and were doing a... More

We dropped into Bay Leaf twice during Byron's very busy New Year period. Both times for breakfast. The menu is super interesting with lots of creative breakfast options. Try their dairy free version of an ice coffee made with roasted coconut milk ...luscious! The staff are focused and friendly, especially the waiter on the door. If you go during peak... More

We came for late breakfast and the place was busy so the waitress suggested we wait in the attached coffee bar - this was fine and we didn't have to wait long. The food was interesting and really tasty - but we had to wait a long time for our meals.

Bayleaf has the best coffee in town, and delicious take away treats... But as like so many other places in Byron the service is really quite 'smug'. Haven't had a meal there before, only take away so maybe it's different then.

Great food, great Coffee, Great Atmosphere, freindly Staff. Also opens at 7.oc so great if your an early riser. Only meters off the main street. We all were very happy with the option available for Breakfast.
