Nestled in the dunes with a breathtaking view of Clarkes Beach is the Byron Beach Cafe. From the cafe’s vantage point overlooking this popular surf break, diners can sit on the long verandah and watch the early morning surfers compete for a wave over breakfast.
Sinking into the relaxed vibe I was guided in the direction of the coconut martini. The menu described the drink as including chilli, caramel and coconut vodka. It sound delicious and deadly at the same time, but I was ready for a drink with a bit of flavour and a nice kick! I wasn’t disappointed, the cocktail had so much sweet coconut flavour! I was in love from the first mouthful with the fresh coconut flavours, the buttery mouth feel and the warming hit of chilli which followed each mouthful! WOW! The cocktail was topped with a sprinkle of toasty coconut that finished the drink perfectly.
The flavour was even better than I imagined. Hot, sour, spicy and sweet, with just the slightest hint of mellow sour citrus. A perfectly balanced broth that reminded me of learning to cook in Thailand or Bali. I told Brett I would happily drink down the broth alone, but I knew he wouldn’t let me whilst ever he had the ciabatta. I reluctantly returned his meal and savoured the aftertaste of the lemon grass and kaffir lime.
