The Byron Bay General Store

Cafe in Byron Bay

Wander a little way out of town to find this relaxed neighbourhood cafe. While its name fondly recalls the location's history, the leafy decor and healty(ish) meals are perfectly in step with modern Byron. An all-day menu of gourmet burgers and ‘dawgs’, salad bowls and tricked-up toast includes good options for vegans and hearty sides of waffle fries and kumera chips.

Emphasising the community spirit, there’s a genuine environmental focus (bamboo straws, compostable containers and discounts for BYO coffee cups), plus plenty of sunny outdoor seating and a play area for kids.
