We wanted to walk somewhere and have a great breakfast!! The Pass Cafe certainly fulfilled that request. Very friendly staff and when i asked for something not on the menu they were more than happy to help!! Great place.

Went seeking a good breakfast in a nice place. We found it at The Pass Cafe. The meal was very satisfying, and so were the coffees. The staff were friendly and helpful. Just up from the beach and with walking tracks heading in both directions along the coast, it is a great location to park up before sightseeing around the... More

Post wedding breakfast with the wedding party and the food and excellent service totally outweighed the hour it took to park the car. So park in town and take a walk up to the Lighthouse, you won't regret it.

Love the amount given and the quality of the food here. Fish&chip came with fresh coleslaw and some green veggies while prawn avocado salad was so fresh and the prawn is well-grilled. Strawberry milkshake is also a good choice to cool down an afternoon. Worth a try if you come to cape byron or watergos.

We went for breakfast, had an egg and bacon sandwich, pastry and coffee's. The food was all top notch, fresh and probably the best cappuccino and latte we had in Australia. Service was great, very nice servers, checked on us and all smiles. We found it to be a delightful environment and will likely go back while in Byron Bay.

Unfriendly service (always has been when I've been there). Breakfast of one of the worst I've ever had - soggy toast, canned mushrooms-had to cover it in salt and pepper to make it edible

The pass cafe is amazing, great value for money, range of great meals, the staff are amazing, Kylie the waitress we came across so generous with a great personality. Away from the busyness of town. Cheeky kookaburras and water dragons to keep you entertained. Fast service, even during busy periods the staff always stay positive and try there best with... More

I am a Byron Bay local. I often surf at The Pass, and get something to eat or drink from this cafe. Today I took a friend, and I ordered some fish and chips, large size, $13. The meal was very average, and came without sauce. I went back and asked for sauce, and it was 50 cents. I paid... More
