This coffee was pretty ordinary, thought is would be great but didn't love it. I have a long black so like a strong coffee but this just didn't cut it

A wide range of healthy and appetising options. Great to have coffee served while you wait for the freshly made brekky to arrive. The house muesli is yum!

Just finished a fantastic lunch. Really well done. Great menu, though my chicken salad was a little short on chicken. Great for me but wouldn't suit a big appetite.

After checking out 3 breakfast choices settled on Expresso Head. We had the best pancake & coffee in Byron Bay. Great food & excellent staff. Highly recommended.

I had a soy latte and fruit toast for breakfast here on a weekday. It was busy with locals getting take away coffee and the wait staff probably didn't see me sit down even though the sign says to take a seat because they have table service. I had to get up and get my own menu. And had to... More
