After a leisurely stroll to the lighthouse some where to eat was a must ( if not just to shut the misses uo), where it was the stiff achilles or the Hangry's setting in, who knows. The food was great (if not too leafy). Waiting in the gutter for a table for 15 minutes had to be worth it. The... More

Bayleaf is a very popular cafe in Byron, and rightly so. The only issue I have with this place is the way I have heard the Barista carry on about making my drink on almond milk on more than one occasion. Don't put it on the menu if the staff are going to whinge and make fun of an order... More

We had a most delicious experience at Bay Leaf to please any palate, coffee was the best and the breakfast another level above on the taste-o-meter, I had the breakkie greens, my husband had the mushroom toast and our son had the banana bread. We all went away feeling loved and full of soulful food. Thanks to everyone for making... More

Had breakfast here twice while in Byron over Easter. The food is beautiful and great atmosphere, try the dukkah eggs- amazing! Staff are friendly and service is quite quick. Highly recommended, get there early though as it is very busy.

Weekend queue is 30-40 minutes so if you are after a quick meal, forget it! Very friendly and passionate staff. Worth a crack.
