Byron Bay is seemingly replete with coffee shops on every other corner...and then some,but most are just noisy and crowded venues for Hipsters to hang out.Espressohead has seen many come and go in terminally hip Byron Bay,but this place maintains a consistent level of quality coffee and good service in a relatively quieter part of town,opposite the Court House.It's busy...

Interesting breakfast menu, with some unusual combinations. Coffee good, but not outstanding. Seating a bit cramped, and toilets a let down. Popular - filled up around 9am.

Expresso Head is a little gem just opposite the court house, slightly tucked away but close enough to the beach and everything. Always love the coffee and food here, paricularly the barley risotto or pasta of the day dish!

Many people had recommended this to me. Great location if you are staying in backpackers and I think the YHA next door?? Lots of locals in and passing by on the great street front that it has and a great buzz about the place. Coffee a little strong for me, but easily dealt with - add hot water! Breakfast good... More

We breakfasted several times at this Cafe during our recent trip to Byron Bay. The coffee is the best in the bay by far and the food was very tasty.

Had coffee or lunch on a number of occasions and was never disappointed. Wish we could take their chef home with us.
