Bay leaf is a must for anyone visiting Byron. If you are lucky enough to get a seat inside you can watch the chefs in the open kitchen do their thing. The food is always 10/10, it is absolutely a favorite and there will always...More

I overheard a conversation about a cafe with long queues and thought I’d check it out. Good coffee, great sweet potato flat bread and lovely staff. Enjoyed it enough to have it again 2 days later. Creative yummy breakfasts. A lovely change. Worth the wait.

I ate here because of the high rating on Trip Advisor and because of the vegan friendly tag, but I was disappointed. I'm not vegan but I don't eat dairy and the vegan-friendly tag can be helpful. The menu has limited vegan or dairy-free options...More
