Coffee is serious business in Byron Bay. This region is brewing with creative coffee bean growers and roasters, so open your taste buds to the north coast way of waking up. Try the different blends, and then try some more.

Although it’s tough to pick just 5 spots, here are some of the best in the business, each offering something unique.

Top Shop

Serving Single O Roasters coffee, burgers, sandwiches, smoothies and acai with local organic, free-range produce. A social place where you can sit on the grass, feel the sea breeze and have a chat. Relaxed feel of those carefree summer days of the 70s.

Suffolk Bakery
Hang out on the ancient recycled timber veranda with your morning brew and a freshly baked pastry.

A sign the coffee’s good.
