I like a good coffee in the morning and this place delivers. It seems to be a popular place with locals and is a bit away from the busy main street. It is worth a visit as they do a good breakfast as well. I like the smushed peas with feta and poached eggs. They seem to be able to... More

A regular spot when visiting from out of town. This time absolutely heaving as long weekend (but Byron is always busy). Coffee and food was still great and great value for the standard. Staff will have slept well that night as appeared almost at breaking point.

Nice cosy breakfast/brunch spot right next to one of the most busiest backpackers place. Cool hippie atmosphere serving generous quantities with good quality. Hope you enjoy!

In a quiet area of Byron Bay- although lots of customers seem to have found it- service and food was great- coffee excellent! The buttermilk pancake was served with strawberries and coconut chantilly cream... we tried all the best rated cafes over the week and they are all good, but we came back here for the pancakes.

Pleasant breakfast, ordered the buttermilk pancake which was lovely. Coffee tasted a bit different though. Not many options for breakfast.

Was looking for somewhere nice for breakfast after spending the night in Byron. Service was a little slow, they were pretty busy, but the food was great.

A mother of one of the waitresses at espressohead recommended we go here because their coffee was the best in Byron Bay. And she was correct. Ever since we had our first flat white we've come past everyday day we wanted a coffee. Today we came past for breakfast and enjoyed bacon and scrambled eggs as well as the muesli... More

One giant fluffy delicious pancake, with maple syrup, cream and strawberries. Had to go back the next day it was so good! I recommend getting a side of the amazing bacon. Everything was good, incl the coffee ...which is important because we're coffee snobs from Melbourne :)

Espresso Head is tucked away (although very easy to find) from the main drag (and it's hundreds of tourists) and seems mainly frequented by locals. I'm a self-confessed caffeine addict and and hate to admit it but always travel with my favourite brand, but it was good to find somewhere with coffee above par. Interesting menu - the smashed peas... More

Interesting and great food. Coffee is good - even takeaway was good. Muffins to die for service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend
