Barrio has reopened

Co-Owners: Dan Wyllie, Francisco Smoje, Tristan Grier

Barrio Eatery & Bar is now back open to the public for breakfast and lunch, and will be trading once again in evening hours by February 2020. 

Start your day with St Ali coffee and Barrio’s classic DIY bowls: nourish or bircher museli with all the toppings; delve into a hearty Argentinian mince on toast with fried egg; or indulge in our selection of Bread Social pastries.  

Barrio’s colourful salads change daily and will fill the counter alongside Barrio’s famous empanadas, fun and inventive sandwich creations, schnitzel burgers with jalapeno lime sauce, veggie burgers with eggplant bingal, and many more delights to devour with friends. 

‘Considering we have had Christmas and New Year holidays in the middle of this incident, we are amazed at how quickly and efficiently the tradies have pulled this together. Thanks to our loyal customers who have continued to visit the coffee cart daily and those who will be back once we are open for all-day dining.  We’ve missed you and can’t wait to hear what you have been up to over the holidays’ – Dan Wyllie. 

Barrio Eatery & Bar closed due to fire damage after an ember got into the extraction fan in mid December 2019.

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.”
