ellenix lennox head | cafe review

Lennox Head is exactly what I imagined Byron Bay to be like; a sweet little beach-side town with surfy shops, cute homewares & trinket stores and funky little cafes situated along the beautiful Pacific ocean.

While Byron is much more developed; a buzzy but relaxed alternative-lifestyle hub for Northern NSW, Lennox Head is just as I imagined.

On our Summer holiday away with The Jacksons we discovered the sleepy little town of Lennox had some amazing cafes! We actually drove the 20 minutes south from Byron to eat at Ellenix Cafe twice! Here’s a sample of the brekkie offerings…

It’s always a challenge for me to snap a picture of E’s food before he smashes it! Huzzah! Don’t the blueberry pancakes look delicious!?!

I’m so proud of Jay!
He orders something different from the standard “big breakfast”. Turkish pide stuffed with spinach & cheese served with a side of avocado & bacon and topped with a fried egg.

Neen declares her scrambled eggs as the best she’s ever eaten.
Who are we to argue! Delicious textures with the chewy grilled haloumi and chilled smoked salmon and the peppery crunch of fresh rocket.

You know what makes me insanely giggly happy?
Cutting into a perfectly gooey poached egg that oozes all over your plate!
Breakfast perfection!

What summer cafe outing is complete without a bright summery mango frappe!

  1. Good review. Ever since we’ve been back, I’ve been craving those eggs! I’ve been too scared to go out for breakfast anywhere else, in fear that nothing will measure up. Yummers.
