California vibe, tucked on top of hill in residential area.

First place I visited in Byron. Had the American burger with a side of fries; and a coffee. Coffee was nice, and food ok. Found the fries inconsistent, now that I think about it, it seemed like a fresh batch was mixed in with some older/colder fries. Burger was ok - meat pattie was a little tough... read more

This place is a long way from the main drag so i had never been (or even heard of it) despite many trips to byron. I finally made it after a hot tip from friends. The foods is fantastic and the service is great. No trip to byron is complete without having a burger on the grass outside Top Shop.

Had the American & the Fish burgers. Both were delicious. The staff were friendly and the service pretty quick. Overall, a great place for lunch!

We had to wait a long time to receive our burgers although it proved that it was worth the wait. Burgers are very tasty and are good proportions Highly recommended if you want to burger

We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and great food at this restaurant. The food was excellent and coffee too. Sitting outside on the grass or finding a table to share is part of the experience. Went there several times - even when it was out of our way. A true Byron Bay experience.

Walked to Top Shop from town on the recommendation of a waitress at my fave Byron Cafe (the Bayleaf) - she said I wouldn't be disappointed in the coffee and I shouldn't leave without going once. She was right !! I swung by here on my last day in Byron just to grab a coffee and find a quiet place... More

Stayed in Byron for a few days & came here for lunch twice, once solo & the other with friends. My Vege burger was so tasty & my friends said it was the 'best' American burger they'd ever had!! Had a chicken & pesto panini also & it was amazing! Can't wait to eat there again.

Since we were staying literally a few steps away from the Top Shop Cafe, we thought we would be having breakfast here every morning. After the second visit though, we changed our minds and decided to eat elsewhere for the rest of our trip. We did go back for drinks though. This place has a very nice vibe, most of... More

food is great, but place always feels like it could do with a really good clean. Tables not wiped down near enough, tons of flys inside over your food, and everything just feels a bit sticky and dirty. Shame, because the staff are great, and the food is consistently good. Love the position, it has a great energy and atmosphere
