What a brilliant cafe, exactly what is meant to be, great quality, value for money and above all, when the owner is not there, it runs exactly as if he was. We had 3 breakfasts and 1 lunch there and it was perfect every time....Having experienced 4 others in Byron I can assure you it’s the best all round.More

We had a delicious lunch here. Muscles in cream sauce with french fries are are sublime. Service was very good.

Ordered a bacon and egg roll on a baguette. Spent about 10 minutes draining the yolk and hollandaise sauce, it was the sloppiest bacon and egg roll I’ve ever tried. I ate half of it, the other half fell onto the plate. It was disappointing...to watch a $16 meal fall apart like that. Atmosphere was nice but the seating was cramped and tight.More

I am staying with my Daughter and Son in Law across the street from Dip. We have had breakfast there a few times and the food and coffee has been very nice. However the attitude of the male server and the coffee maker is rude...beyond belief. Firstly when you line up to be seated as stated by their sign there is no greeting. They go on making coffee and cleaning tables as if you are invisible. Eventually today the coffee maker nodded at me, I asked if I could have the table for one inside that was clean. He didn’t listen for a second to what I had said, just said sorry, for me to repeat what I had said again. Before I could repeat the request he began a conversation with the waiter who brushed past without out acknowledging a person was even standing there. Invisible once again. I appreciate they are busy and I’m prepared to wait but please ! Welcome your PAYING customer and if busy say, I’ll be with you in a moment. That’s the most basic of customer service skills. I left and never to return. So many other good restaurants in Byron Bay. I’m giving them 3 stars for the food and coffee only.More

We have been going to Dip for years now and were pleasantly surprised with the new French Twist. The food was so tasty and the hollandaise was amazing! Don't go anywhere else for your breakfast fix. Ambience was comfortable and staff were attentive. Loved the...French music. Well done guys.....we will be back!!More

Beautiful and tastefully decorated cafe. Good food especially the pancakes. It’s unlike the normal fluffy pancakes. This is a bit bready yet super delicious. They top it with fruit compote. If you are hungry they serve big breakfast , avocado toasts, or light breakfast like...a coffee and croissant. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good service.More

On our first morning our breakfast order of coffees was LOST then botched. But on our second our coffee and iced coffee were $17. Was it because I asked for and extra shot of coffee in the iced coffee? Not sure.

Dip Licensed Café, done up like a Parisian Bar/Cafe is our “go to” place for coffee and brunch. With a friendly French staff, a fully stocked bar, authentic French menu and amazing coffee, I have no hesitation in recommending it. One of our favourite haunts...in Byron Bay.More
