Mayfields was born in the the beautiful hinterlands of Byron Bay in Northern NSW, when chef, Scott Walters & Maitre dee, Kristin Bass, began operating the restaurant of the Eltham hotel. After establishing a reputation for great food, utilising readily available native ingredients, we began to market our products to a wider audience via the regions enormously popular market scene. Mayfields offers simple traditional, satisfying hot breakfasts, with a twist, using fresh local produce, much of it sourced from the market that morning.
“Our philosophy has always been to do food well, to do it justice, to use modern methods and ingredients but to always stay true to the authentic and traditional intention of the dish, and to keep it simple,” Scott said.
