The service was awful. It was incredible quiet on a Sunday lunch, and yet it took a long time to get attention for the waitress standing nearby chatting to seat us. we were then given menus but an incredibly grouchy waiter. We were offered no water while the staff stood around chatting for no less than ten minutes on an... More

I felt I needed to write a review based on the service at this cafe. But it looks like I am not the only one to have this problem. I agree with other reviewers..... do something about it and actually care. I had never being to this cafe before and looked forward to trying something different. I know I will... More

Good: we said we needed to be out in an hour, and they said no problem. We ordered, they delivered, we were able to get to where we were going. Not so good: the waitress and waiter seemed to be squabbling about something the whole time we were there. Poor: the eggplant dip was tiny, seemed to not have been... More

Had Lunch there again, and if you read the Reviews, Service is Slow. Nothing seems to be being done about this. After eating Lunch, which was slow to be delivered on a day that the place was only 60% full, it took some time for the table to be cleared, and that was only after attracting some attention to get...

What can I say the food here is always awesome. Had the antipasto hot platter AGAIN. Great food and service. They even set up a second table to fit our platters on what can I say. Do yourself a favour and done here you will not be disappointed I sure. Even got to meet the owner what a lovely person... More

The coffee here was good, and the interior decoration was quite eye-catching. But everything was ruined by a slow service, as we waited our cups of coffee and only a little snack and fries for more than 20 minutes (while the waitresses were busy chatting!!).

We have just had our second visit to Vageli's - both times for set menus functions. I would recommend this restaurant as a function venue - they provide very good service, the food is excellent and consistent (even with large numbers attending), and the tables are decorated appropriately. I ordered a spicy beef salad for an entree - and spicy... More

We have dined here a number of times and even venture over the bridge just to dine here. The mediterranean platter is awesome. Service is ok could be a bit better but I suppose that is pretty common throughout. Make sure you book a table because if you do you get a table cloth and a free port...Yehaaa...Will keep going...

What else can I say! Been back many times and always an honest good cup of coffee and good food. Was back for a business meeting and always easy to park and it is free parking all the way up the road. (Don't even think about it Councillor Quirk of putting meters on Racecourse Road) Good coffee shop and nice... More
