Fresh foodie fun

Luscious Foods in the Byron Arts & Industry precinct is a foodie hangout for locals and in-the-know tourists.

My usual ‘go to’ dish at Luscious is the vegetarian pizza with pesto, not because I am vegetarian but because when vegetables are cooked with love and care they really can be a thing of gastronomic beauty!

Like so many local eateries here in Byron, the team at Luscious are hugely passionate about making everything from scratch and fresh daily, you can taste this dedication in every single mouthful. Like their classic Israeli-style hummus that is so creamy and light that you want to use your finger to ensure you get every last little bit off the plate (hopefully while no one else is watching!).

You can get your Middle Eastern foodie fix at Luscious for breakfast with a belly-nourishing Harmony Brekky of poached free-range eggs, mushrooms, avocado salsa, goat cheese and your choice of freshly made bread. Oh yes, and ask for a side of their epic housemade Coriander and Chili Sauce – it really is all kinds of wonderful.

On Friday grab yourself a table in the courtyard and soak up the live music, good vibes, and don’t forget to BYO beer and wine!

The crew at Luscious also do catering – YAY! So you can ask the team to come to your office, home, or wedding venue.

And if you find yourself admiring the hand-crafted ceramic plate you’re eating from, the owner’s wife is the clever lady behind these little creations.

Open Monday to Friday for breakfast and lunch. And Friday night for dinner.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
