Enjoyed the food here, a bit more care and attention can be given assembling dishes. It looks like it was put together in a rush. Very tasty, bigger variety for warm food would be good...three of the four options are mince dishes. All and all...More

Wow. Middle of summer but no ice. So no sorbet no iced coffee no nothing. But your free water comes with ice. Whahaha. Also no biscuits. Damn worst mistake ever. All other shops full but this place is almost empty. Should have known better.

A son of Cypriot immigrants, Michael Elias was exposed to authentic Greek and Cypriot cuisine throughout his life.

With Mama no longer living in Cape Town, Michael wanted to recreate and share the memories of his childhood feasts with the coffee shop dwellers of Cape Town.

Traditionally a family run business, Michael, his father Papou Aleko (90 years old) and sister Helen, work together to recreate the best deli style dishes for the Cape Town community.
