I have a friend who eats here all the time. I don't know how. The service is average, the food is below average, the other customers aggravating and it's expensive. Just another poor restaurant in an area that specialises in poor restaurants unfortunately.

I should have noted all the empty tables at 1230 but I was getting hangry so decided to eat here. I ordered the Avocado feta mash which was pretty poorly presented. Tasted much better than it looked though. Coffee was fine but nothing great. Have been here for dessert previously- an insane amount of cakes, slices etc to choose from... More

First time i went food was nice, they have a big variety of cakes to choose from. Second time i went there had to take a seat outside on my own as there was nobody close to give me a seat. Had to wait another 5 minutes to get a menu but no one came, so got up and left.

Excellent food at good prices considering the area. This restaurant has been here a long time and that to me shows stability and an inderstanding of the customers needs.

I have been in twice over the last couple of years. It took me some time to get over the first time. Staff are not interested in serving you. Place looks empty and still no one wants to take your order. I walked out after 5 minutes the frost time (no one else in the place that I could see)... More

Lots of big cakes and decent, strong coffee. Food is average though, nothing special. Service is good.

In the Crown Casino, offers reasonable price menu with some unique and tasty items with a Greek Flair - been there a number of times and never left disappointed.

For such a busy street I'd expect they'd have more people in this place. There's something missing. Our coffee and cake was okay. The servings were too big? Not sure I'd usually say that, but they were monster sizes and put me off! Feel like they need to improve the service, or music or something?
