Australia is an incredibly vegan-friendly country. It might even be the most vegan-friendly country that I have been to up to this point. Literally, every single coffee shop that I went to while in Australia had some sort of non-dairy milk available. I even went to one coffee shop in the absolute middle of nowhere, and they had non-dairy milk. Let’s just say I am a huge fan of Australia! And what might be the absolute Mecca for vegan eating in Australia is Byron Bay. Byron Bay is kind of like this hippie surf town that I fell completely in love with. Eating vegan is incredibly easy, but I figured I would share two of my favorites.
I am the biggest sucker for cute cafes. Ultimately, I care about good food. But if a restaurant/cafe is aesthetically pleasing, then I will become a raging fan. This is precisely why I fell in love with Combi. The food is delicious, and the actual restaurant is incredibly adorable. This is not an entirely vegan restaurant, but they have A TON of vegan options.
I had this incredible Acai smoothie bowl topped with peanut butter, bananas, and strawberries along with an iced latte.
I returned to Combi for a second time because I loved it so much the first time. The second time around I got a vegan sandwich that had vegan cheese and vegetables along with another iced coffee.
You can see Combi’s menu here. I don’t think that this is their entire menu because I couldn’t find either the smoothie bowl or the sandwich on this menu.
I absolutely loved this restaurant! Unfortunately, I only had the opportunity to go there once because it is only open for dinner. It is an entirely vegan restaurant that serves tapas and mains.
I have always absolutely hated seafood. I have even tried fake seafood since becoming a vegan, and I am still not a fan. No Bones has these Beer Battered Prawn Tacos, and they are one of their bestsellers. I decided to try them out even though I haven’t had the best experience with seafood. I might have to change my mind from now on because these tacos blew my mind! They are exquisite, incredible, and delicious. I literally can’t get over how good these tacos were.
Note: Prawns are shrimp for my American readers.
Along with the prawn tacos, I got a side of these Brussels sprouts baked with vegan cheese. These were also incredibly delicious, and I would 1000% order them again.
Basically, if you go to Byron Bay, go to No Bones. You will absolutely not regret it.
