Have been a couple of times now and enjoy the food and service. Lebanese breakfast is nice, everything is flavoursome and well presented and uses quality ingredients. Will be back (again amd again!)

Ok so we finally went since new owners took over. Staff were pleasant enough. Coffee was terrible. We asked for an extra shot and it was a large mug but still very weak. Friend had normal size and she also said it was weak. Menu looks good and pancakes were nice but nothing spectacular. There are lots of interesting meals... More

Fathers Day for us is the day that our Chef son and RN daughter are both on the same day off, so this was the Tuesday after Fathers Day proper. We picked Ave Cucina in Eva St Coorparoo, because I was born just up the road a little bit and, for about 20 years, lived only a few hundred metres... More

We went in a large group and they were very accommodating. The staff were very friendly and happy. The drinks came out fairly promptly but the food was slower and some of our group didn't get their meals until after others had finished theirs - but to be fair, it was pretty busy. Some of the flavour combinations I hadn't... More

Been here a few years ago and have been thinking about their pancake since. So we came back here for their pancakes, unfortunately it was a different combo and...it didn't turn out as good as I expected it to be. The menu is okay. However, I do feel it is sort of a rip off as majority of the dishes... More

I came here on a Monday after seeing a friend post some crazy delicious looking images of their food over the weekend. I asked for the pancakes and was advised they were only a weekend menu item – yet the lovely staff member offered to talk to the chef, and they made them up for me especially even though they...

Awful food. Arrogant staff. Poor service. Over priced. Lengthy delay after my order went missing. Don't bother - go elsewhere.

This is a nice suburban cafe in Coorparoo originally kicked off in 2010 by Veronica and Shadi, winners of the initial My Restaurant Rules series on Channel 7 in March the same year. They still operate the cafe but are not hands on as much these days. The menu maintains links to their respective heritage with an Italian and Lebanese... More
