We probably wouldn’t typically think to head to Byron Bay for its coffee shops alone – it’s all about the surf, fish and chips or time spent exploring the restaurants in the surrounding area. But don’t be fooled into thinking it has little to offer the coffee lover. Here’s a list of Byron’s best cafes for those who like to start the day with a smashed avo and piccolo.

Located on the serene 86 acre working farm (‘The Farm‘), Three Blue Ducks is a haven for foodies who value the farm-to-plate experience. This relaxed cafe is all about real, fresh food from local (organic wherever possible) suppliers, sourced locally and sustainably.

Don’t be afraid to bring the kids for a family outing on the weekends. There is live music, BBQ’s and a playground, complete with a foraging trail and cricket pitch.

Folk has a great coastal and relaxed vibe with white-washed furniture and a scrumptious brekky menu. Sitting on the outskirts of Byron, this one is a great stop-off if you’re just passing through on a road or day trip. Folk is all about ethical plant-based eating, so if that’s on your list of must-haves in a cafe, make sure you stop by.
