The Only Beach Front Café in Byron
Idyllically situated on the absolute beachfront at Byron Bay, the Byron Beach Café is a very popular meeting place for residents and tourists. It is the only restaurant and wedding venue situated on absolute beachfront land in Byron Bay.
In the past five years, the site has received sixteen awards for excellence. Having visited the café on many occasions, I can tell you that the food, the service and the atmosphere, is second to none! It is open daily for lunch and dinner four nights a week, and it is fully licensed.
During the day, hundreds of guests enjoy a cool, casual atmosphere whereby they can enjoy the ocean views. The front of the café is used as a park kiosk, where you can buy soft drinks, ice creams or fish and chips. The surrounding gardens are graced with lush green grass and huge Pandanus trees. It provides a convenient stopover for cyclists and visitors walking along the foreshore. The café has become so popular by day that it simply ran out of room. To meet the demand from intending diners, it has utilized the open space of the park to accommodate the additional customers.
Café by Day, Restaurant at Night
By night, the venue transforms into a more sophisticated restaurant, providing a unique and romantic ambience. It is also renowned as one of the district’s most popular wedding reception venues.
Diners will experience some of the finest seafood in the world, as well as the freshest organic Byron Bay produce, much of which is grown in the nearby hinterland.
