My hubby and I sometimes drop into Decolata late on Sunday afternoons to have a late lunch. The staff are always friendly and obliging, the ambience is laid back, and most importantly, the coffee tastes great. The food is freshly prepared and reasonably priced.

What can I say? Nice place is about it. Oh service was OK. Food? Can't even poach an egg. My first eggs came as a watery mass in the middle of the plate. So I sent them back and they returned yolks solid and the whites still liquid. The exact opposite of what I wanted! How did they know? I... More

Relaxing cafe, friendly service and great food / coffee. And the best part is that the kitchen is open till quite late. Great place to relax on a Sunday!

Excellent value & the service is most efficient. David the café owner & the other David (who makes the coffee most of the time)... More

Came here for Sunday brunch with a few friends and is safe to say we had a terrible experience. Waited at least an hour and a half for some dry toast and eggs. Customer service was ridiculous, they had no idea what they were doing and barely had any time to serve us.

We don't often find coffee good enough to order a second cup, so a great treat to find this place. Nice friendly atmosphere, a great asset to the neighbourhood. Good breakfast too, particularly the salmon bruschetta.

I stumbled across Decolata. A really lovely café in Summer Hill. All of the staff are friendly and care about their customers. The food and coffee at yummy and reasonably priced. Go through the cafe to the back garden - a quiet, leafy oasis.

We called by chance and were impressed by the range of meals and the great service. Sitting outside in a fabulous courtyard made for a very pleasant time. If ever back in the area we will defintely be back

It was our first visit to Summer Hill so we were happy to find it had so many places to choose from. We finally decided to have lunch at Decolata – a decision driven by the fact that it was a bit later on a Sunday and the other places were a quite quiet. It was a good decision! We... More
