I had a breakfast here on a cold Sunday morning after diving (its next to Sundive). I ordered the soft polenta with mushrooms and a side of chorizo. All was very tasty and well cooked. I really couldn't ask for more on a rainy cold day. Coffee was nice and strong with a good crema. Staff were friendly and the... More

After spying eggs benedict on the menu, my boyfriend was sold and he wasn't disappointed! I tried it myself and it was gorgeous! I opted for muesli with poached pairs and strawberries - gorgeous!!! Friendly service and it was just the perfect spot for morning brekkie in the sun!

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!)
