We ducked into this large cafe near the Brisbane River at Hamilton for a quick lunch. It was very busy, with lots of kids (who eat free on Tuesdays. Service was pleasant. Food is Greek influenced and took 50 minutes to arrive. Grandson was not impressed by his cold pizza and the other meals were ordinary. There are better local... More

Dear Newerfarm Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your family’s disappointing experience at the Vagelis Café. Waiting fifty minutes for meals to be served is not acceptable. The lesson for us is that when we design our staff rosters we need to ensure we have contingencies in place in the advent of team members not being... More

Dined here many times and was a little disappointed today. Service was slow and a young girl with no English can't take our order? We had the arancini balls, pulled pork burger, side of fries which were warm and undercooked and a ceasar salad with octopus. Overall okay and flavoursome, the salad needed a little pep up but good!! Good... More

Dropped in after the races for dinner and accommodated well, with thought into comfort regarding breeze. Good selection of food and souvlaki sticks were perfect for a light meal, and the beef cheek pie was the best my husband has had and he has eaten pies all over Australia. Nice atmosphere and friendly service.

Rather than eating breakfast in the Hotel we were staying at, we decided to eat here at Vagelis Cafe in Hamilton. Simple order where we both had Eggs Benedict - 1 with Bacon the other with Smoked Salmon. Both were excellent and along with a couple of coffee's, happy days Would go back again

Good brioche burger with lots of sauce. Any burger lovers dream with cheese. Comes with bacon. Messy to eat however enjoyed every bite.
