“Top Shop is good for brekkie and lunch....and COFFEE. 2 min walk will have your morning coffee taken care of. Take a mug from home and help the planet :) (not the pink hand made ones please...they're my precious favourites. Granola/yohgurt and fresh fruit is our favourite brekkie, but egg and bacon rolls are also very good. Lunchtime is burgers, but they have a ready made quinoa salad that is very yummy too.”

“Special night out? Look no further than St Elmo’s - amazing food, and a sophisticated and intimate atmosphere. The only drawback is snaring a table as, even on a quiet night, St Elmo’s is often booked out, so remember to book early. Whether you start at the bar or head straight to your table for some of the Bay’s best tapas, you‘re assured of a fantastic evening at this superb venue. REMEMBER: Put on your best holiday outfit and head to St Elmo’s for a night to remember! Open 7 nights a week from 5 pm st elmos byron bay ”

Tasty snacks, muffins, coffee and cake. (For a special occasions, ask about booking a sunrise breakfast - one of the most interesting breakfasts I’ve had in Byron.)”

“The Pass Cafe provides great indoor-outdoor dining. Dine on the covered deck or choose an outdoor table under a market umbrella. The Pass Cafe is footsteps from the beach - at the best surfing break in Australia - and it offers a wide range of meals, snacks and drinks. This licensed cafe not only has tasty menu options, grab-and-go snacks (think fish and chips), ice creams and drinks but the friendly staff will welcome you warmly - even if you’re barefoot, in your swimmers and a towel over your shoulder. Enjoy the beachy vibe!”

“A great people-watching spot - especially suitable for single travellers. Located on the corner of Jonson Street and Bay Lane, behind the Beach Hotel, this is one of the best places in town to chill out, listen to the nighttime buskers and relax. And it’s also a great place for morning or afternoon coffee. ”
