Bayleaf has the best coffee in town, and delicious take away treats... But as like so many other places in Byron the service is really quite 'smug'. Haven't had a meal there before, only take away so maybe it's different then.

Great food, great Coffee, Great Atmosphere, freindly Staff. Also opens at 7.oc so great if your an early riser. Only meters off the main street. We all were very happy with the option available for Breakfast.

Ate an early quick breakfast here. Both breakfasts really good but with a Sunday surcharge breakfast is expensive. My wife's kale and mushroom breakfast with gluten free bread together with the surcharge came to $25! That didn't include drinks or my breakfast. While it was all delicious I've had just as good breakfasts elsewhere for a third of the price... More

the food is simply divine warning: no skim milk for your coffee tho, but that is quite standard for Byron.

Soooo good! We visited for breakfast twice and waited 20 mins each time which is unheard of for us! Always busy. A very friendly, hip vibe with amazing healthy dishes such as pulled pork breakfast burrito, feta scrambled eggs and amazing banana bread. I enjoyed a coconut milk infused iced coffee. Highly recommended.

Bay Leaf Cafe is always abuzz with people enjoying their morning coffee or breakfast. The food is fabulous and so is the coffee and other goodies. It is also fantastic to watch the experts in the kitchen whip up the meals. We watched the chef put together a fruit and yoghurt breakfast plate for a toddler and it was magnificent,... More

Generally packed especially around meal times but get in early for great coffee and a meal. Bay Leaf is a bit of an institution and an automatic choose if looking for great coffee in the Byron shopping precinct.

All of the people in Bayleaf were amazing! I had cafe latte and their elixir made of coconut water, ginger and other things and it was like healthy bomb! Definitely place with a vibe! Thank you Bayleaf for what you are doing!
