Tall Tree Films presents our top 5 picks

Meeting each couple before filming is all part of the process at Tall Tree, so why not meet us at one of the best cafes Byron has to offer? We’ve listed them, in no particular order, below – but let’s face it, most cafes in Byron are all totally Insta-worthy.

The General Store

The General Store is a classic. It used to be a run down, local corner store called Max Milk Bar. It was up for sale when local business partners Ben Gordon and Phil Taylor saw the opportunity for a community project which would keep it in the hands of locals. To block it from Sydney developers or International ones. The cafe is super nice, they serve the best vegan and gluten free food in Byron for sure. Very Insta-worthy with cool shit everywhere. From the cosy inside set-up to the sunny outdoor seating, everything you need for a stellar gram post is there waiting to be photographed.

The Pass Cafe

The Pass cafe is a little under the radar still with husband and wife owners that pump out some of the best food in town served fresh. After a surf at The Pass walk up above the bathroom to find this gem. You can sit there or get takeaway and sit on the beach and gram away.

Fresh Cafe

Fresh Cafe is actually in the space that was once a shop owned by Tall Tree Films’ Head Videographer Ben‘s parents back in the day, as mentioned in his latest blog post. This Cafe is probably the best Insta-worthy cafe in Byron Bay. The love sign on Bay Lane is a worthy photo op. The food is fresh and the coffee is great. With a seasonal menu and fresh flowers every day you can’t walk past it without having a look.

The Top Shop

The Top Shop is a classic for Insta worthy-ness. It’s a short walk from town and if you order any of their smoothies you’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s an epic place that fills the grass outside with people on the gram.


Barrio is a newly built cafe within the Habitat community development, inside the newest addition to the Arts and Industrial Estate. The modern backdrop provides a good spot to take photos of the food and of yourself. The Insta-worthy cafe is one of Byron Bay’s best new eats – oh and since Tall Tree Films are in the wedding business, Barrio also caters for weddings and are highly recommended.
