Best Coffee Shops in Byron Bay When You Need to Chillax
We Aussies take our coffee seriously, and Byron Bay is no different. A crazy amount of coffee shops exist in the Byron Bay area – too many to count. With lots of coffee farms just behind Byron Bay providing easy access to excellent beans, it’s no wonder there are plenty of places to grab a relaxing cuppa in town.
Here are 9 of our favourite Byron Bay coffee shops:
1. The Top Shop
Also known for burgers, The Top Shop is located along the way to the popular surfing destination The Pass. Almost always busy and a hang out for locals and visitors, grab your flat white or latte and relax on the front lawn. You won’t be the only one doing so!
Where to find The Top Shop: 65 Carlyle St., Byron Bay
2. Bayleaf Café
Considered to serve some of the best coffee in Byron Bay, the Bayleaf Café brews Marvell Street Coffee. Marvell is a popular local coffee bean so that puts Bayleaf as a favourite among residents. The Daily Grind blend is also a top seller since it pairs well with milk, and there are rotating special drinks like the recent Vietnamese Iced Coffee. The café cooks up delicious and healthy breakfast and lunch items as well. Make this a must-stop on any tour of Byron Bay coffee shops!
Where to find Bayleaf Café: 1 Marvell St., Byron Bay
3. Dip Café
Ranked no. 2 of 134 restaurants in Byron Bay on TripAdvisor, Dip is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch. Reviewers said “coffee to die for,” and “it has great coffee, service and ambience,” also adding that it was a locals’ favorite, which helps amp up its reputation.
Where to find Dip: Shop 1/21-25 Fletcher St., Byron Bay
Just a short walk from Main Beach, this Byron Bay coffee shop brews Merlo coffee, a popular bean from Brisbane. Espressohead is known around Byron Bay for serving up a great breakfast along with its delicious coffee, but that’s probably because it is one of the longest continually running cafes in Byron Bay.

People who used to serve up coffee at Top Shop run another popular coffee shop in Byron Bay. At night, Roadhouse becomes a whisky bar, but during the day it serves Byron Bay organic coffee among other pick-me-ups.

Be sure to either get there early – it opens at 7:30 am – or make a reservation as you will want to enjoy your coffee and meal overlooking the beach.
