It’s no secret that we are total foodies. So on our recent getaway to Byron Bay, I knew exactly where we would be heading for breakfast one morning! I’d been following Combi Byron on Instagram for ages and drooling over their smoothie bowls, raw cakes and healthy goodness every time they posted new photos. It was a long weekend, so super busy although I expect they are busy every day because their menu is so incredible! Combi has an organic menu, home-made nut milks and raw cakes, fair trade coffee and insta-worthy smoothie bowls, all while being family owned and supporting local farmers! It was the perfect spot for brunch after Dan’s early morning surf and my lovely beach walk.
We started off with coffee for Dan and a Matcha Latte for me. Both were piping hot and delicious! I’m really loving matcha and tumeric lattes these days but have found them a bit hit or miss in cafes but I’m happy to say, Combi’s matcha latte was perfect.
Dan was a little disappointed when he realised there was no bacon on the menu, however I quickly swayed him when I pointed out that he could have an Acai Bowl with peanut butter! It was amazing and boy oh boy that peanut butter hit the spot! The smoothie bowl was served in a coconut and presented beautifully with antioxidant-loaded acai blended with banana, blueberries, medjool dates, house made nut milk then topped with crispy coconut flakes, activated caramelised buckinis, banana, apple, cranberries and strawberries. It almost looked too good to eat!
I opted for the Dragon Fruit bowl which was blended with mango, banana & house made nut milk, topped with strawberry, apple, crispy coconut, chia seeds, cranberry, goji berries, activated caramelised buckini and garnished with passion fruit. It was so sweet and full of goodness, and I would definitely choose it again although I did have a little bit of food envy over Dan’s acai bowl with peanut butter!
Combi was every bit as good as we’d hoped. It’s not the cheapest option for breakfast, with our bowls and coffees costing just over $50 however it was worth it! We were completely full by the end and a little sad we couldn’t fit in some of the raw cakes that we had been eyeing off when we first walked in. We’ll definitely return to Combi on our next trip to Byron and highly recommend it to anyone who loves fresh, healthy and mouthwateringly good food! The cafe is also super cute with pastel decor, palm trees and a really relaxed vibe!
