A mother of one of the waitresses at espressohead recommended we go here because their coffee was the best in Byron Bay. And she was correct. Ever since we had our first flat white we've come past everyday day we wanted a coffee. Today we came past for breakfast and enjoyed bacon and scrambled eggs as well as the muesli... More

One giant fluffy delicious pancake, with maple syrup, cream and strawberries. Had to go back the next day it was so good! I recommend getting a side of the amazing bacon. Everything was good, incl the coffee ...which is important because we're coffee snobs from Melbourne :)

Interesting menu - the smashed peas... More

Hidden away near the courthouse, the menu is creative and coffee is the best in Byron. The team really pull it off every time, love the creative flair in the flavours they put on the plate. Great bean, great staff and great every time.

I stumbled across this little gem after a scuba dive - and here I am writing a review literally minutes after finishing. Firstly fantastic service - very friendly and the all important smile for every member of staff. Ordered a hot chocolate as I sat down - heavenly! Spoilt by a great menu I settled for Eggs Benedict with Bacon... More

Being from Melbourne, I'm fussy when it comes to my coffee, was not disappointed. Another benefit, they open early in the morning.
