Yummy food

We had dinner here while waiting for our daughter's flight to arrive. The food arrived quickly and was a big serving. I would go back.

Absolutely blown away with the quality of food. One of the best breakfast in the town. The only let down was service. We waited for about 10minutes just to order and about another half an hour for the food. The place was packed due to the weekend and we didn't mind waiting. Once the food was served we just couldn't... More

This cafe has a good selection of food on it's menu that changes seasonally. Service is usually prompt, however if they're busy expect to wait a while for service - both to order and once you've finished. Regardless of this I've eaten here a few times and found that if you aren't in a rush then the sometimes slow service... More

One thing I really hate is slow service on the drinks, if the restaurant owner doesn't realise that this is what makes his profit then he should shut the doors immediately, what a fool! Not only were they incapable of getting the drinks in a reasonable time the food took nearly one hour and it was gawd damn awful... all... More

I give Vagelis an "Average" only because the food was so good - and it is hard to please my son. We were in a hurry and only had a bit over 1.5 hours for breakfast. Plenty of time I thought. But no it took well over an hour before they realised we hadn't got our meals yet. And it... More

Vagelis is well placed on Racecourse Roard in Ascot. The venue is spacious and cool and very welcoming. The staff are attentive and prompt and very efficient. The wait staff took our orders verbally which was very impressive! The menu caters for all tastes and delivers very well. I have never seen a bigger more delicious omelet before. The coffee... More

Went here for lunch on 24 Feb. I have been here before a few times. Waited to be seated but not too long. I knew what to expect. The food is typical cafe food - acceptable but nothing to die for. Just as I expected and had in the past here. Service was relatively quick. The food was ok. The... More

Came here for a quick Australia Day brunch. Wanted the breakfast menu and were informed that breakfast ran until 12 noon (it was just after 11.30am). However, when we sat down we were informed that they had decided to change the policy so that breakfast finished at 11.30am. Fortunately we only wanted very simple poached eggs on toast, so our...

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
