Once a furniture store, The Henchman has been completely renovated and now boasts a huge outdoor boozing and dining area, complete with astro turf, white picnic tables, hanging chairs and fairy lights.
In the far corner a shipping container is pumping out Byron Bay coffee, as well as delicious brekky and lunch options. With a strong focus on seasonal and organic produce, you can expect eats like the Blend Bowl with almonds, chia, macadamia, mixed berries and coconut yoghurt.
And you can’t go past their signature jaffles made with flaky puff pastry. Our favourite is the bean jaffle with oven baked beans, red capsicum and tomato sautéed in turmeric, ginger, cumin and basil. One bite and you’ll be coming back for seconds. There’s also an array of moreish vegan slices for the sweet tooths among us.
In the coming months, the space will continue to expand, with an outdoor pool and several bar areas planned.
