“Perfect way to spend a rainy Sunday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Situated in the Greek precinct of Lonsdale St. Visited here for an afternoon hot drink and a sweet treat on Sunday which was wet and miserable. Old style coffee lounge with really comfy seats. After deliberating for ages whilst staring at the yummy cakes display I finally ordered a hot chocolate and baklava and I was in heaven. I would love to know what syrup they are pouring over the baklava.

Will definitely return to try more of their cakes.

“Didnt enjoy the baklava”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We got a blacforest cake, pistachio baklava and chocolate halva. The cake looked a lot like pre-made cake and it wasn't the best. I found the baklava to be pretty bland and I didn't even bother eating it all because I didn't think it was worth it. The halva was nice though. Wouldn't go back, we were disappointed.

“Best Baklava outside of Turkey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I am a breakfast, brownie and baklava fiend and I have found my baklava heaven. Been here twice before and the third time of consistently great food, service and quality prompted me to recommend and review.

Baklava- amazing.
Cakes and cookies- amazing.
Coffee- brings it down a smidge.

Turn your back on the diet for a da, pack your insulin and let loose!!!

You-are-welcome ;)
