To be honest, i was a little underwhelmed when reading the menu. Nothing too adventurous, all the standard breakfast and lunch options...we both ordered the potato rosti with salmon, hollandaise, avocado etc and it was DELICIOUS! Service was great. Certainly worthy of a 5 star rating and would certainly return.

After browsing round the town, which in itself is interesting, we opted for this cafe in a side street, the sun just touching some tables in what was a cool breeze. Service was good. Staff friendly. The coffee was also good. My food was close to excellent with freshly cooked chicken pesto pasta, just as if it was good home-cooking.... More

These guys need a lesson in Customer Service. Waiting an hour for breakfast to come without any acknowledgement from staff, not even a check to see if we needed more drinks or an indication that the kitchen was running behind. The girl taking drinks orders wouldn't take our food order because it wasn't her job but didn't let the food... More

Ordered five meals. Four where the same and all were made wrong! Service was painfully slow and staff needed to be prompted to do things. All food was bland and not memorable. All meals were sent back to the kitchen half eaten. Will stop at McDonald's on the way home!

We called at Byron Bay on the way from Brisbane to Coffs Harbour. The arcade in the middle of the main street looked fine so we strolled up to the top and found this café. Only wanted a very light lunch so selected the soup of the day. Not sure about the ingredients but it tasted like it had caught... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast and was impressed with the food. Ordered a bacon and egg roll and it was brilliant. Homemade aioli and chutney - was really good. Friendly staff and relatively fast service. Would definitely return to try more of there food.

Fantastic (Classic roast) coffee ... Eggs benedict with perfectly poached eggs and a nice tangy sauce. Nicely tucked away from the main road. Very friendly staff.

Great little place. Absolutely no negatives at all. Friendly engaging staff, good menu selection which was not over priced, excellent coffee, pleasant atmosphere, good free Wi-Fi and just the best dip platter we've ever had anywhere. Will definitely be back next time in Byron Bay.

Nice little cafe tucked away in Byron bay. I arrived mid morning which is clearly rush hour time but the service was very slow. Food was good but would have preferred it a bit quicker.
