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

I was recommended by a friend to check this cafe. It was better than expected. Definitely a local hang out. Service good and easy. Food and drinks were delicious and healthy with affordable pricing.

Do yourself a favour... get your shorts and sunnies on, stroll to the Top Shop and get ready to chill out because this is certainly the place to do it. Perched on top of the hill and surrounded by the wonderful homes that make Byron Bay both old and new (check out a few of the houses down the street!)... More
