Today we had our worst breakfast ever - at Mokha.
We are locals but don't come into Byron often, and when we used to have good food and friendly service at Mokha.
Not to today. the usual friendly smiling waiters were nowhere to be seen. In their place were two
solemn looking waiters who had to force a little smile, if any.
The food was greasy and bad. plus the order got mixed up.
I ordered soft cooked scrambled eggs with cheese and got a leathery greasy omlett.
All the food just plonked on the plate.
My partner had fried eggs - and they were cooked solid and greasy. we paid 61$ and regretted it.
The veggi juices were fine.
It did not help that on this early sunny morning techno music was played too loud. it seemed it was the waiters choice and not so much in tune withe customers.
Maybe the cafe is under new managment???

We go to Mokha regularly and it is always a great meal, reliably great coffee and great service. Owners must know what they are doing as they get great staff

Have never had a bad coffee here, pretty hard to have that reputation with different staff. Been going to Mokha for years, too. Good menu, nice food, specials are great. Friendly and never have to wait too long. A really reliable place.

Looks just like another cafe but the food is very good, cooked on premises and very good value from tasty toasted sandwiches through to quality restaurant dishes and cakes made by the chef

Our orders were taken promptly, and our food was brought out at a reasonable time. One of the waiters were quite rude though. When the spaghetti napolitana came out with a tiny bit of parmesan on top we politely asked for a little extra to which the waiter walked away into the kitchen (right next to us) and said out loud "I'm going to start charging people for extra parmesan!"... Also one of our burgers came out with no onion (which was on the menu), but we didn't say anything.

Despite spending over $150, I felt like we were a burden to them. I didn't feel welcome at all. Won't be going back. :(
