Went there for a friends birthday on 30 July 2014. Our group had around 15 and another party of 20 in a separate room plus a small number of 3 to 4 person tables. They had 4-5 floor staff on and this could not be handled by them. Staff were pleasant enough about from one reference to one of our... More

Had a business meeting that kept changing time and date. Someone suggested Racecourse Road and we ended up here. After a small stuff up with tables, overcome by a round of free drinks, we had a very pleasant 2 hour lunch and business meeting. Food was good and reasonably priced. We will be back.

This is the classic Queensland café with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, with tasteful yet simple decour. There is a good range of dishes on the menu with the emphasis on Mediterranean cuisines. I had a very nice seafood pasta as a main followed by a rather incredible chocolate desert. I have to say that for chocoholics like... More

My partner and I went for Saturday morning breakfast. When we were shown to our table no one came with menus or water, eventually I got up and grabbed some menus myself. Once again we waited and waited while staff whized past without even noticing us. I finally flagged down one of the waiters and asked if we could order.... More

I had breakfast at this cafe recently with a group of friends. The staff were very pleasant and made us feel welcome. Even though it was a Sunday morning and the cafe was crowded, our food order was taken promptly and delivered in a short time. The menu for breakfast was quite extensive and reasonably priced, and everyone was pleased... More

It opens all day and serves all meals. I frequent vagelis for its biggest omelette in Brisbane! The breakfast itself is always satisfying, portion and taste wise. The coffee can't be a little less consistent. Sometimes amazing, sometimes average. They roast their own coffee in the coffee shop next door which I believe belong to the same owner. I've only...

Always come back to this restaurant as I am never disappointed in the quality and presentation of the meals. Service is quick and attentive and always with a smile. Pricing is very good for the quantity of food served in very pleasant surroundings. Would recommend placing a reservation for any meal as it is always busy especially on Mother's Day... More

Vagelis ambience is one of comfort, which shows through in the range of dishes that they serve. The venue is an open type, but covered in, so cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The food is always of a high standard and of a home cooked nature with the added professionalism of their Chef thrown in.. The... More

Called by on Mother's Day very late in the morning on the chance of perhaps getting a table. The staff were all excellent and offered us some stools at at a timber bar, before combing two outside tables for our party of 5. Great service, great food and a wonderful atmosphere.

Looking for a spot for Saturday brunch, we happened to drive past Vagelis and noticed quite a number of people waiting to be seated. To me, this is always a great indicator of the cafe's popularity ... and we weren't disappointed! Considering the crowd on the day, the service was excellent. Our orders were taken quickly, with meals arriving within... More
