Exploring the hinterland around Byron we discovered the townlet of Federal. And in Federal we discovered this cool Japanese style cafe where you can eat sushi outdoors under the hinterland trees. Great food and well worth a visit.

We came for coffee, but the green tea panacotta and sushi lunchbox looked too good to pass up. Everything was delicious and the outdoor seating area was perfect.

Awesome quaint bustling cafe, food was so fresh, best sushi rolls I've had! Well worth a visit, drive from Byron is beautiful through the countryside! Would love to know what flavour the aioli with the chips is? Delicious!

We had heard so many great things about doma which to me didn’t live up to expectations. They had live music which was a nice touch. If I come back I’ll give a 2nd chance just going off reputation
