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

Very popular with the locals for good reason. Have only tried it for breakfast/brunch but always been happy.

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

We stopped in for a quick dinner the other night. Great staff John & Evie were on duty & made us feel welcome. The spaghetti bolognese ordered by my partner was a bit bland but my soup was delicious. This is our usual breakfast go to cafe & the pancakes are great. Think the new owners should be very happy.... More

We had a group of eleven people to celebrate my daughters birthday. From the minute we walked in, early, the exceptional service, genuine warmth and hospitality to myself and guests was evident. We were waited on and asked continually if anything was required and when we ordered we're very surprised at how fast all meals were delivered to table. The... More

We visited Vagelis on a public holiday so only breakfast menu was available. The food has been consistently good for years at this restaurant. It was the service that let them down on this occasion. Unusually long wait for meals and coffee order never materialized. Overall, still worth a visit.

Having recently returned from Greece i couldn't go past the lamb souvlaki with my friend ordering the keftedes. Both meals were generous serves with side salad & plenty of pita breads. The lamb was well seasoned & the yoghurt was properly greek, thick and garlicky. The wine list was quite diverse with good option by the glass. All in all... More
