FB Instagram Youtube Byron Bay Food: Best Breakfast in Byron Bay - Travel with a Silver Lining

Hip and cool, Byron Bay was a joy of a visit during our trip through the austral summer. Just one hour away from Sydney by plane, this chill surfer town was everything we needed. It has a sort of glamorized backpacking vibe we won’t forget anytime soon – and the Byron Bay food will also stay in our hearts. Here, you’ll find my ultimate guide for breakfast in Byron Bay! Also check out my foodie guide for the TOP 10 BYRON BAY RESTAURANTS FOR DINNER!

This New South Wales sweet spot gave us all the vacay vibe we craved. Three items come to mind when thinking of our days in Byron Bay: flip flops, a sun hat, and sunscreen. Just the right ingredients to enjoy life at the fullest.

I love how varied Byron Bay food is: heaven for foodies, especially for those who follow culinary trends. The restaurants tend to be very conscious of design. Plus, the breakfast in Byron Bay is often focused on sustainability, locally sourced ingredients and offer lots of options for the healthy one!

Let’s delve into the Byron Bay food in this breakfast in Byron Bay review!

The moment we walked into Combi, we knew we’d found one of our favorite breakfast in Byron Bay options. It’s gorgeously decorated in pastels but with tropical sensibilities. I love how chic and modern this place was, with details like the pink table in the middle and the all-around décor.

This is a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, or even just to drop by for a smoothie. The fact that they served some of the best Byron Bay food certainly helped our love! Their smoothies were downright delicious, especially the mango one – and their avocado toasts and Açai bowls were also spectacular. Their sweets looked good, too, but we didn’t try them.

The atmosphere had a uniquely chill vibe. The service, as it usually happens in Australia, was super friendly and professional.

We came to Top Shop after all our friends recommended it, and we were not disappointed. One of the yummiest breakfast Byron Bay options, it’s a five-minute walk from town. The design isn’t extraordinary: just an unpretentious hole-in-the-wall with some outdoor seating, tables and a bar. Still, it’s pretty lovely to just take a blanket and chill on the grass here.

Top Shop serves some of the best Byron Bay food we tried. The place is famous for their burgers, and the fish one is among the best I’ve ever had. Fred went for their staple burger, the Top Shop, which was also delish.

Once again, it was the atmosphere that did us in here. Here, we were surrounded by locals, always a great sign. We actually chilled in this café for two hours!

The General Store was another love at first sight – and locals seemed to agree! Right outside one of my favorite boutique hotels, The Bower, it’s 10 minutes away from town. Even though it’s a little off the track, it’s always full of people out for breakfast in Byron Bay.

Before serving some of the best breakfast in Byron Bay options, this locale was many things. It’s been a major hangout for locals for nearly a century! Now, its rustic design is one of its best attributes. Decorated as an old shop, it’s full of delivery boxes as chairs, adding modern details like murals, a swing and cozy tables outside.

The vibe here is unmatched, and one of my favorite things about this place is the ability to do people watching. The queue for coffee here was super long, so we assume it was great – but we’re not coffee lovers. I can definitely vouch for their delish green smoothie and açai bowl. The menu was small but everything we had stood out among Byron Bay food!

Bayleaf Café – The Famous One in Town

Bayleaf Café is one of the most popular breakfast Byron Bay places, and it’s easy to see why. While the servings were good, it’s the atmosphere that makes this place stand out among others. Time and again, we returned for that intoxicating feel!

The Farm is a truly unique place not just in terms of Byron Bay food, but as an all-around experience. You can reach this restaurant after driving five minutes, and it’s such a different vibe. Here’s the kicker: The Farm is, in fact, a working farm, with piggies, birds, and horses. There’s also a café, a flower shop, a grocery store and a small and cute ice-cream stand.

Currently mixing the traditional elements of a farm with a modern outlook, it’s a very popular breakfast in Byron Bay option. The food and drinks, all made with local ingredients, are incredible, including the best chai latte I’ve had. Their sourdough bread is also incredible, made in their own bakery.

The Farm is wonderful for a weekend rural outing. One of the details I loved was the flower shop, and I would have bought so many flowers if I hadn’t been traveling.

This place is great for families with kids, as there are so many activities with the animals. Loved watching the pigs rolling around in the mud!

The Belongil Café proves that some of the best Byron Bay food lies right outside town. If you bike for 15 minutes outside town, you’ll reach the secluded Belongil beach. A more luxurious area with fewer tourists, it hosts this lovely little café that feels more like a garden. Very boho chic, it quickly became a favorite among the many breakfast Byron Bay options! First photo of this post is also from this cute Byron bay food place!

In terms of breakfast Byron Bay, no place is as popular with locals as The Roadhouse. A 20-minute bike ride along the road to town, it’s designed in darker shades, with lots of wood. Well, like the name says, it is a road house!  It’s one of those spots that proves how good Byron Bay food is all around, with delicious brekkie and brunch. Just a minute up the road, there’s also a cute little flower boutique that deserves a visit!

I hope this list of breakfast in Byron Bay options will inspire you to visit this lovely beach town. For more foodie inspiration, check out all my restaurants reviews here!
