In the morning, locals and visitors alike gather in friendly, lively cafés to sip single-origin coffee, indulge in a hearty breakfast, and compare notes on the morning surf. Byron’s many popular restaurants are friendly and approachable – if it’s high-brow, pretentious cuisine you’re after, you won’t find it here.
