The Best Coffee Shops in Byron Bay, Australia

The Best Coffee Shops in Byron Bay, Australia
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.

Three Blue Ducks

Cafe, Restaurant, Australian, $$$

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.

Bayleaf is where you head on your way down to Main Beach for an early morning swim. Like many others in Byron, it’s a great option for vegetarians with loads to offer on the menu. The brekky options will fill you up with decent-sized portions and a good brew.

Espressohead Cafe has been a local favourite in Byron for 15 years and never disappoints. Only a stone’s throw away from the beach, Espressohead is a must for a locally sourced organic breakfast or lunch.

It might be a little outside of Byron but Woods, Bangalow is worth the short drive for a healthy and nourishing breakfast. Stay a while and enjoy the small-town, close-knit community vibe and locals shops in Bangalow.
