My review of this cafe is based on how I was made to feel and the lack of any apology for the long wait for my order. Having placed an order for an American burger and chocolate milkshake, at no time was I informed that it would be a long wait. The shake arrived first but appeared extremely runny which... More

It was a bit of a walk up the hill, but once we got there and found a shady spot. We found the staff to be very friendly and the service to quick. Delicious breakfast and great coffee

a bit out of the main part of town is this little place. great reputation, and the Burgers were great. Would recommend going for brunch, as it it more of an order, and chill out place. As with all places in Byron, good Gluten Free options

Very average food and service. Left unimpressed. Would not return. Highly overpriced and burgers were about $15 and didn't come with chips?

The burgers that we ordered from Top Shop (American and The Top Special) were both very tasty and stood out from the standard burger due to the quality of the ingredients used. However, for the price, we were a bit disappointed that the burgers were not served with a side of chips. We suggest adding a serve of chips to... More

We went for breakfast this morning on recommendation from our accommodation that it was a real local place. It had a private little nook on the side which had a chalkboard which was great for keeping our 2 year old occupied somewhat and contained. The food was tasty and fast. Coffee a bit cold and it was really annoying how... More

On my second visit to Byron there was only one breakfast joint I was looking forward to visiting and that's Top Shop. Consistently, they deliver fresh good breakfast. The ACAI bowls are amazing and so are their sandwiches. Although, it can get alittle too busy, sometimes the wait is worth it. It can be a slight walk from the centre... More
