We were staying at a hotel across the road and this place was a nice surprise. Very nicely designed with outdoor seating. Attentive staff and nice menu. Great coffee. Opens early for coffee and at 7 for breakfast

Big boy- 2 large lumps of meat make it well worth the money and the vegetarian burger was the best I’ve had in ages! Full of cheese, salad and beetroot as well as the sweet potato and chickpea burger itself.

Good menu to choose from with a nice breeze on the veranda to sit and relax. Reasonable prices and good service. Meals are fairly large in size. Order and pay at the counter and everything will be delivered to your table.

Visited Byron Bay for this year's writers festival. Enjoyed three breakfasts en route to the event. Relaxed and friendly staff. Good choice of breakfast options and nice sunny outdoor seating.

The service was great, however when ordering a smashed avocado it would be nice to receive more that 1/8 of an avocado!! Expensive for what was received, however it is Byron bay. There are other places which offer better value for money!

We just came here to eat, we did not stay here. The burger we had here was absolutely delicious, and well priced. I didn't expect food at a backpackers to be so good ! The food in Byron Bay generally seems to be overpriced -...More

We enjoyed The Wreck and Bircher muesli for breakfast, and the coffee was delicious - despite the fact that the waitress spilt one of them all over the table (and our things) and then insinuated that we may have to buy another...but then realised it...More

There are plenty of water jugs readily available of which you can help yourself. If you order coffee there are no sachets of sugar or sweetener available as you have to ask for this with your coffee order. Otherwise you need to wait in line...More
