After walking around the Lighthouse and talking all the normal tourist type photographs, sit down and have a great coffee at this small but very friendly little cafe. Some inside seats but mostly outdoor seating. Resonably priced.

Having wandered around the lighthouse and taken the necessary photos it was time for some liquid refreshment. The coffee and hot chocolate were served in china mugs, a blessing instead of paper or polystyrene. They were both tasty and hot.

We had lunch here after walking up from the captain cook lookout car park. Lots of people around and little available parking. But the food was very enjoyable and the coffee was great. Awesome views as we agree lunch.

The best place in Byron bay to grab some coffee with the most amazing view, and gives you a chance to get away from the busy town, the food is amazing and the coffee even better !!

We have a large undercover deck which overlooks Byron Bay and the ocean, taking in Julian Rocks. The deck is open on the sides and ends and is subject to the weather.
