One of my favourite quotes (and if you have been to Serotonin you would have seen it on the wall)
‘Every time we eat we are either feeding disease or fighting it’.
Food is medicine. If you continue to eat processed foods with little nutritional value, you will not get the nutrients your body needs (our bodies literally crave for wholefoods). This is why I created Serotonin Cafe to help educate the community on the importance of soul food and the magic it does to our bodies. Byron Bay is a hub of goodness when it comes to food. Below are a few of my favourite places to eat and delve into the local cuisine and culture. Anyone else agrees Serotonin needs to join this hub? ;)
My favourite place in Byron, my first stop and must go when in town. The menu is always fresh, colourful and drinks specials are always new and creative! Ask the guys for their recommendation of the day! The manager Jesse is a legend too
2A Marvell St, Byron Bay NSW 2481 | Open 7:00am - 2:30pm
The Roadhouse Byron Bay
Great place for a coffee or to sit outside and read a book. Just at the end of the Bangalow road on the way to Byron Bay. Stop in on your first morning to check out the menu as it changes all the time and vegan options vary.
6/142 Bangalow Rd, Byron Bay NSW 2481
Folk Byron Bay
Folk is 5 minutes out of town on your way to the ‘Industrial’ area. Very casual and great place to hang with friends over brunch. Post brunch make sure you head into the amazing local designers and opp shops in the ‘Byron Bay's Arts & Industry Estate’.
1/399 Ewingsdale Rd, Byron Bay NSW 2481 | Opens 7:30am - 2:30pm
Great for a morning coffee with breakfast or lunch. This super cute sister cafe to Folk in Byron Bay, only has a few seats and no table service. You can grab a yummo big buddha bowl and peruse the local designers whilst you wait - then sit down and enjoy the sun (definitely no Melbourne weather here)..
Behind the ‘Arts Precinct’ - 10 Station Street, Bangalow NSW 2479 | Open 7:30am - 2:30pm (Closed Monday)
Combi Byron Bay
The sister cafe to their Melbourne one, come for early breakfast after a walk to the lighthouse. The place is always a buzz. Coconut bowls just had a big breakfast with 50 vegan bloggers here last week! Check it out for an acai bowl or smoothies and pressed juices. Great desserts to take on later adventure hikes too.
5b/21/25 Fletcher St Open 6:30am
My favourite place in byron! A vegan cafe attached to a church! It’s super unknock and the owner is the nicest guy you’ll ever meet! Best place to co-work from as it’s dead and has the best lunch and EPIC VEGAN DESSERTS :) 97 Johnson St, Byron Bay NSW 2481 | Open 11am - 3pm (Closed Saturday)
The Farm Byron Bay
Not great on the vegan options, but worth having a look for the drinks and produce store. Maybe grab a take away snack before you go on a hike, bike ride or kayak.
