Byron is an amazing destination for so many reasons, but the food here is HIGH up on that list. After multiple trips there to zen out from busy Sydney city life, I feel well-placed to give you my favourite haunts for health food. Think epic acai bowls, avocado toast and poached eggs you ever did eat! You probably caught it all on my ‘gram at @thefitfoodieblog, right?!


Set in one of the most beautiful settings just out of Byron town centre is The Farm – which plays host to restaurant Three Blue Ducks. Their main-stay restaurants in Bronte and St Peters in Sydney are SO crowded on weekends, but with good reason. The produce is fresh, the portions generous, and the menu inventive with seasonal produce. Load up on their salads with herbs fresh from their garden beds, local roasted pumpkin, and don’t forget the house-made almond milk in your coffee. It’s also open for dinner, but service can be slow later in the day. Just get on Byron time and suck it up.


Bayleaf is in the centre of Byron and is the perfect spot for a healthy weekend brunch and people watching. Hang out with a delicious Dandelion Chai and watch the surfers stroll past with their boards. You’ll want to get there early for a table, but if you hit the rush, hang out for a cuppa at their sister cafe next door until a table comes free. The favourite dish here? the ceviche (seasonal) or green brekkie bowl (below).
