Really lovely place to meet up for lunch. Friendly staff, delightful food, and somehow they even got the music right (surprising how often it's too loud/too irritating!) Would highly recommend trying this bistro - may be slightly on the pricey side but it's definitely worth...More

We have been here a few times now and are always impressed with the friendliness, cleanliness and quality of the food. Would definitely recommend it. I especially love the avocado and egg on toast or English breakfast, Oh and their delicious cakes.

Authentic cafe in the heart of Bury St. Edmunds. We were looking for a place that was near the market and offered a variety of food. We loved the lattes, the food was delicious, and the staff was friendly. They have extra seating upstairs, which...More

I called in to The Baytree for a spot of lunch. And enjoyed the sea bass with roasted Mediterranean vegetables. I was not to be disappointed, the food here was as good as ever. Good service by friendly staff.

The Bay Tree Cafe Bistro has been an integral part of St Johns Street, one the loveliest areas in Bury St Edmunds, for more than 15 years. Being one the oldest buildings in the street we have been careful not go overboard with modernisation by keeping the interior subtle and furniture simple to offer a balance of cosy cafe and with a hint of modern bistro. With dining rooms on both the ground and first floors it is deceptively larger that it first appears. Our hope is that the Bay Tree's menus offer something for everyone; vegetarian dishes, dishes suitable for special diets and child portions.
