Folk Byron Bay
Turmeric and gingko in the ginger beer and tahini in the smoothies. This place has super healthy and wholesome bowls.
Great coffee keeps this popular sunny meeting spot pumping from morning till late afternoon. Call by their new deli and takeaway counter directly next door for all your beach and picnic goodies too.
This place does a roaring trade selling organic smoothies and acai bowls. The coconut bircher is a winner.
Byron Bay General Store
Almost a mid way point between Suffolk Park and town you'll find this bustling cafe (right next to The Bower). Take up a seat on the verandah and enjoy the casual atmosphere. Their haloumi burger is certainly delish!
Using farm fresh, local ingredients “The Roady” is a popular choice. This cafe is situated just out of town, a short bike ride or three minute drive. #roadynights have got you covered with pizza, tapas and cocktails. Closed Sundays.
Sunday Sustainable Bakery
Need a takeaway treat for the beach? This is your go to. From sandwiches to sausage rolls you won’t be disappointed when you stop by this popular bakehouse.
Harvest Deli & Bakery
One side is a bakery and the other is a gourmet deli with great coffee – it doesn’t get much better than that. Sit amongst the gardens, especially on a Saturday morning when the bakery makes extra yummy pastries.
100 Mile Table
A friendly and passionate team cooking up seasonal dishes and good coffee. Situated in the Industrial estate with a co-working space above. The fragrant asian style fish curry and the ginger congee are great!
RESTAURANTS & BARS
From breakfast through to lunch and dinner Francisco and his team are serving incredible foods with an Argentinian twist. There is a great open space with outdoor seating. You can opt for the chefs suggestions at dinner time or try the Peri Peri chicken and roasted cauliflower.
Tacos from a two-hat restaurant team? It's the dream . Just a short 20 minute drive from Byron, this Brunswick Heads fit out does a mighty fine Margarita, achiote-marinated pork and pineapple taco and ceviche.
The ultimate dining escape - seasonal food sourced from artisan producers and their own edible gardens sit alongside foraged native and wild Australian ingredients, in the historic village of Newrybar.
Their award-winning wine list explores small, conscientious wine-makers and lesser-known Australian varietals.
Opened in October ‘18 Bang Bang offers delicious, fresh and fiery mod-Asian food. Think of a pared back Chin Chin. It gets pretty popular so booking for groups >2 is important.
The fifth restaurant in the 'three blue ducks' team’s hat is brand new bar/restaurant 'Locura' - Spanish for madness. A blend of Mexican, Costa Rican and Peruvian the food offering is small (think nibbles and small mains), spicy and delish. The cocktails are great too!
Contemporary Australian with a Mediterranean influence. Rae’s offers a stylish mix of dining in an ideal location - the natural and relaxing surrounds of Wategos Beach.
They also have a cellar bar where you can enjoy an afternoon drink and some of the region's finest seafood in bite sized form.
This great business is a favourite among locals and tourists alike. Indulge in a tapas plate paired with great cocktails.
This natural wine bar is the new kid on the block! It only opened in mid-March but is already serving up delicious food and all natural wines. Fingers only dining. Lots of fun and excellent staff. They don’t have a website yet so follow their insta page for the address @supernaturalcellars
Authentic coastal Mexican cuisine with a festive fit out, situated in Suffolk Park. From the team behind Harvest.
A brand new player on the Byron food scene. Locals are claiming this is some of the best Italian in town.
Mediterranean magic. Go for the cocktails and the great interiors. An excellent spot for groups and events.
Miss Margarita & Chihuahua
Cheap, quick and cheerful. Hidden amongst Byron's laneways you'll find these two ‘hole in the wall’ restaurants with fresh Mexican staples that won’t break the bank. Better for a quick takeaway post beach than a sit down meal location.
Spot this lively haunt as soon as you roll into the centre of town. Situated on the round-about you can take in a great street view from brunch to dinner. Their signature dish - fresh Northern Rivers Oysters, anyway you choose. Go here for the cocktails over the food.
Big night? Look no further than Bay Kebabs. Full disclaimer: We haven’t been here since 2008 schoolies era.
