We went to Espresso Head several times on our recent trip to Byron, definitely the best coffee we had in Byron. We also had a delicious morning tea, with the gluten free chocolate brownie and orange almond cake going down a treat. The lunch menu looks fantastic and I can't wait to go back e.g. haloumi sandwich with olive tapenade,... More

And breakfast is pretty special too. This is out of the way...near the library and courthouse but that's no reason not to look for it

Its the second time visiting and still love this gem of a cafe. Great breakfast and overall good service. my one critique is the side of mushroom was expensive for the quantity and one wait staff lacked some friendliness otherwise overall excellent. Good food, coffee, service and atmosphere.

Espresso head is in a great location with good coffee and the menu was diverse but the speed of service was below average.

Best coffee in Byron Bay and an incredible breakfast menu. Slightly away from the commercial side of Byron. Lovely atmosphere and fantastic wait staff. Will definately be revisiting this little gem time and time again.

Amazing breakfast - super fresh. I'd almost forgotten that egg yolks are actually meant to be yellow. Partner had Haloumi sandwich (enough said!)

This tucked away small cafe, is most certainly worth a visit. The coffee is by far the best in Byron Bay and the Breakfast menu is diverse and delicious. I always have the baked beans on sourdough with crumbled goats cheese and grilled chorizo. It's delicious and the serving size is huge (enough for 2 ) if you are keen... More

My husband and I went here for breakfast. We wanted a laid back place that sold fantastic coffee but we got more. We both had Eggs Benedict which were way above par from any I have ever tasted. From our seats, we could easily see the kitchen and we were in awe of chefs who were so professional and worked... More

Might have been ok if we had ever got Service - we'll never know. Perhaps it's a victim of it's own popularity, but we waited 15 mins, asked at counter twice for service and no-one ever came. We went to Macs instead. Sooo much nicer anyway
