The weekend markets. Hundreds of stalls selling wonderful, largely locally created products. Also, the Mullumbimby or Byron Farmers markets- both great places for community to meet, have a local coffee and begin the day, oh, and to pick up amazing, fresh, locally grown organic produce.
Yami’s in Brunswick Heads- middle Eastern food, a sunny deck and feeling salty after a swim are a great combination.
Dip café in Byron- bringing a touch of Bondi, only better, to all and sundry.
A stroll along Jonson street in Byron Bay, ice cream in hand, enjoying the buskers performing every 50 metres or so, and ending either at the beach or at The Rails Hotel is a Byron as it gets.
The Federal Doma cafe- Albert st, Federal. This Japanese café in the Hinterland is fast becoming the best place for café and Japanese food in the Shire and was recently featured in Smith Journal.
Rock n Roll Café in Mullumbimby. Down an alley, off the main street; it brings locals together over great breakfasts and Asian inspired lunches and dinners.
