Blackboard Specialty Coffee

Whenever Red Macaron is on the coast, he has to have breakfast here :)

What I love about this place is their emphasis on fresh, wholesome, local produce and uniquely sourced coffee. Every time we come here, they always surprise us with something new for breakfast and their coffees are always highly recommended. They are a flourishing seedling in the cafe niche with plenty more growth left.

>>UPDATE

Over the last few months, Blackboard has expanded to include a grocery stall as well as a much enlarged cafe. The groceries next door include goodies from Coyo and Byron Bay Pizza Company to local produce such as Jack Sprat’s Butchery and Fassifern Valley Heirloom Tomatoes. The cafe has an even larger open kitchen plus a central juice/coffee bar and plenty of seating, with a new and updated menu too !

I had the Breakfast Special of the Day: Smoked Salmon with Two Poached Eggs, Avocado and Aoli on a Sunflower Seed Bagel. I loved the salmon – full bodied in taste and texture; the soft eggs oozing with yolk, the creamy aoli and avocado were grounded by the crisp bagel and sharp lemon.

Red Macaron ventured for the Mexican Tortillas: Two Sunny Eggs with a Chorizo, Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salsa served on Blue Corn Tortillas.

On a previous occasion, Red Macaron had the Farmer’s breakfast; and I, the Gardener’s breakfast – well seasoned eggs, fresh avocados, earthy mushrooms and crisp sourdough. Let the freshness sing!

The Bircher’s muesli is a regular of mine – crisp apple, juicy berries, toasted nuts and coconut topped with organic yoghurt. Red Macaron has also had the Angler’s breakfast – gorgeous Dukkah coated salmon, poached eggs, spinach and fresh sourdough.

I also love their Chai, chunky fruit and nut muffin and warm banana bread.

^^  A must visit !
