No Bones

11 Fletcher St Byron Bay

It cannot be denied in any way. The No Bones restaurant on Fletcher Street is establishing quite a name for itself in a region that is well-known for amazing restautants.  Because it uses sustainably sourced, seasonal, and organic ingredients, this vegan restaurant is quickly becoming popular not only among vegetarians but also among meat eaters, and the reason for this is that it uses organic ingredients.

Your mind will be blown away by the exquisite flavour of a variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes, such as No Bones “satay” skewers, “prawn” tacos, and a multitude of other options. Additionally, the bartending skill level here is really high. The No Bones attitude, which can be summed up as “rescue the environment, one brussel sprout at a time,” is something that we genuinely respect and admire.

1/399 Ewingsdale Rd, Byron Bay

Settle in for a nice meal inside the timber-accented kiosk at Folk Byron Bay, shielded from the Autumn wind. The location, décor, playlist, patrons, and setting are all metaphors for the folk culture renaissance in some way, and the meal is no exception.

Folk Byron Bay is conveniently positioned on the western side of town, just off Ewingsdale Road, the main highway into the CBD, making it a great destination for locals seeking for somewhere to get a coffee, snack, or a daytime meal without having to deal with town traffic. The site is also across the street from the popular Discovery Holiday Park, where families, grey nomads, and cash-strapped camping students congregate during the holiday season and festival season, when the kiosk is naturally extremely crowded. There is enough of room for everyone, and there is also lots of street parking, so you will never be stranded for a parking space.

The original caravan park kiosk has evolved into a gathering place for those interested in wholesome, simple, and nutritional foods. Yes, it’s vegetarian and vegan offering is amazing. The meal is modern and excellent, the 70s décor is stylish, and the soundtrack is inspired by the film Almost Famous.
