Tucked into the New South Wales inland region, Orange is a small and elegant town that is definitely worth a visit. The charming tree-lined streets and cute houses provide a touch of history and offer great places to stay, while the top quality produce and foodie culture dining mean there are delectable cafes, restaurants and cellar doors. One meal that Orange serves up with particular pizzazz is breakfast, and with that in mind here are my favourite breakfast spots to try in Orange.

East Orange is worth wandering through if the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is Bills Beans. Coffee is the main game in this hidden Orange gem, where the talented baristas pour out some of the best in town, and they sell roasted beans by the bag if you want more for later. The good news is you can accompany that smooth caffeine hit with some quality food, with a nice variety of breakfast options as well as a colourful selection of baked goodies keep you going.
They call themselves Good Eddy and we have to disagree. This place is better than good, it’s great and for breakfast in Orange it’s a must-try. With impressive coffee served up in a stylish setting, Good Eddy wouldn’t be out of place in bustling Sydney. Instead it’s hidden away in Orange where it’s happily discovered by hungry adventurers, surprised by this unexpected find. The food is simple, but high quality, and you’ll find it impossible to resist seconds on the coffee.
Its menu is delightfully stuffed with regional produce, and because it's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Byng Street Café really does have it all. There’s a cute outside courtyard sitting area as well as expanded indoor seating, plus a fantastic variety of food options, including a brunch menu for the weekends. The skilled Byng Street baristas also deliver on silky smooth coffee that goes down a treat alongside everything else on offer. No doubt you’ll be left feeling spoilt for choice.
