Expensive but great location and brunch

So good that we took a detour to go here on our way from Sydney to the Gold Coast! One of the best places to enjoy brunch and enjoy sitting and relaxing on the grass.

We had a beef burger and haloumi burger- both on boring, untoasted white bread rolls with minimal filling. I have to agree with another reviewer- the big reputation this place has is far better than the food served. Won't be going back.

This cafe is a little out of the way compared to cafes in town, but thats half its charm. All take away coffee / meals, but you can have a seat in or outside the cafe (limited seating). Brekky burger was good, coffee was ok. Not a very relaxing environment so would only go back if we were going to... More

We fancy ourselves as coffee experts and this place came the closest to what we are used to. Be it the barista no the day or the Single Origin beans or both, the piccolo latte and latte were on par with the likes Coffee Alchemy of Marrickville. Only draw back is they don't have coffee cups or glasses, paper only.... More

We had a list from friends of places to visit while in Byron was on it. No I like the location the atmosphere and the people were very friendly. But I would have to say that the place has a bigger reputation than the physical environment and the food itself . The food was very good but it was a... More

Lovely atmosphere, really nice menu and friendly staff. By far the best brunch we had during our stay in Byron and the coffee was spot on. I would have given 5 if they had table service and did something about the flies that swarm around inside (really guys...its time for a fly zapper or a fly screen or a really... More

The burger was perfect - Was hard to get a seat, which just shows how awesome this place is! Fresh juices, gluten-free, dairy-free treats make you feel not so guilty, and the burgers have the perfect amount of condiments and seasoning to make a delicious, juicy meal. Great coffee as well! love the smaller cup sizes. Good value for money,... More

Good food. Over the years The Top Shop has become trendy. Because not licensed as a restaurant, food and cuppas are served in take away containers. However many sit at tables and benches or on the grass. Good quality freshly baked bread is available for sale e.g. various sour doughs etc
