Bayleaf Cafe, Byron Bay
Bayleaf Cafe is a small cafe establishment off the main drag. Fast service, a relaxed atmosphere and tasty food sold us and many of the obviously dedicated regulars.
Deliberating between the smoked salmon bagel and BLAT I consulted Bayleaf staff, who pointed me in the direction of a BLAT but with the added touch of grilled haloumi. Not long after, bountiful amounts of crispy haloumi, well-cooked bacon, tomatoes and fancy greens encased by delightfully mayo-laden toasted turkish bread turned up in front of me. My comrades chose the mushroom, chorizo and spinach fry with sourdough and poached egg, and a Moroccan-spiced haloumi toastie, which were both fantastic. However I noticed as they watched with envy at my obnoxiously delicious breakfast. A fresh beetroot, carrot, ginger, lime and pineapple juice was a great accompanyment. Other menu offerings included locally made organic muesli with yogurt and seasonal fruit, eggs benedict and more. You can find the Bayleaf Cafe at 8/87 Jonson St, Byron Bay.
