One of our favourite things to do in Byron aside from going to the beach is eating!
We've put together a list of our favourite spots to help guide you to have the perfect culinary experience in Byron!

We highly recommend making reservations well in advance to avoid missing out as walk-ins are often turned away.



A trip to Byron is incomplete without a drive through the hinterland to visit Harvest. In the tiny village of Newrybar, head here for a slow morning of coffee and pastries from their deli. Don't forget to take a wander through the surrounding local stores and if you're really keen, make in a booking in the main restaurant for dinner—you won't regret it!

Local Tip: On weekends, tucked behind the main restaurant Harvest fires up its bakery and it's not to be missed! Just be sure to get there early as the delicious pastries sell out fast!


This iconic corner store is a must when in Byron. Whilst you can dine in (or sit on the front lawn like a local), it's best to grab your brekkie and go. You can't go wrong with their B&E roll or Acai bowl, head straight to the beach and enjoy.


A short drive out of town you'll find The Farm. Spend the morning with coffee & brekkie at the Three Blue Ducks restaurant, followed by a wander around the paddocks and under the Macadamia trees.


After a morning walk up to the Lighthouse, there's no greater reward than heading to the Pass Cafe. Sit on the deck and listen to the waves roll in while you refuel on their famous brekkie burger.


The ever popular Bayleaf cafe is the perfect local spot to start your day. Right in the middle of town, this brunch spot is a crowd favourite, get in early to get a table out the front and watch Byron pass by.


Located on the main road out of town, you can't go past this local gem. With a focus on sustainability, this restored heritage cafe serves a predominantly plant-based menu, their smoothie bowls are not to be missed!


Hidden away behind the mangroves of Belongil beach, this cute and homey cafe boasts a tasty plant-based menu which can entice even the biggest of meat-eaters. Get in early to secure one of their outside spots and enjoy.



Located in the heart of town this corner restaurant is always packed. Famous for their Moreton Bay Bug rolls, their Asian-fusion menu is full of flavour and perfect after a long day at the beach. Just be sure to reserve a table in advance because the locals know a good thing when they taste it.


Just a couple of doors down from Bang Bang, you'll see the glow of red neon lights. Boasting a flavour-packed Indian menu, come for a tasty selection of curries & tandoori, washed down with a cold beer from their self-service beer fridge.


Whilst out of town, this place is worth the 20 minute trip to Brunswick Heads! This little orange hole in the wall serves some of the best Mexican the region has to offer. There's no better way to do it than wash down your tacos with a Tommy's Margarita.


Tucked away behind the Beach Hotel, this colourful little place isn't one to skip on. With a modern Asian menu combined with great cocktails and a great atmosphere, it's hard to beat.


If you're feeling boujee, snake your way around the headland to Raes on Wategos Beach. Be sure to book well in advance, as the chance to enjoy their set menu is one of the hottest tickets in town. If you're after something little bit more low-key, their cellar bar is a great spot for an afternoon drink while you watch the surfers out in the water.


A Byron institution, you can't come here and not get a Bay Kebab! Whether or not your stumbling in after a few schooners at the Beach Hotel, or you're just hungry, a Bay Kebab always hits the spot! If you're after a vegetarian option however, best you head around the corner to Orgasmic Felafel on Bay lane, they taste as good as the name suggests.



The home of Byron's favourite beer can be found out in the Industrial Estate. Head out for a schooner (or 4) before 5pm direct from the source. If you're keen to embrace your inner beer-nerd book yourself a tour of the brewery and see how they make their sweet nectar.


If you find yourself trying to kill time before your dinner reservation at 8pm, there's no better way to pass the time than to head to Supernatural for a couple of drinks and some oysters to get the night started. These guys have an excellent wine list with a focus on natural & organic wines, so it's definitely the place to try something new.


This light & white bar is the place to be seen in Byron. Perfect for that pre-dinner drink or settle in and sample all that their expansive cocktail list has to offer.


Right amongst it all on Jonson St, Saltwater is great for a sun-downer and people watching from a table downstairs. They also have you covered after dinner if you're in the mood for a party with the doors only closing at 3am.


Up the coast on Cabarita Beach, there's Paper Daisy, the restaurant attached to the Halcyon House hotel. It's the perfect spot that final drink on your way back up to the Gold Coast before your flight home, or that first drink on your way down to Byron.


This hidden gem in Tumbulgum is famous for its purple Ink gin. Come grab a spot out on its lawn and watch the sun dip behind Mt Warning as you sip on your purple gin & tonic.


One of Australia's most iconic Pubs, the Beach Hotel speaks for itself. Recently renovated, there aren't many better places to enjoy a schooner of Stone & Wood and catch some live music.
