Went here for breakfast and coffee. Well worth the visit. Like so many good veggie cafes, it does not need to call itself out as "veggie"; the food is excellent regardless. I had the "ruben". It was really tasty. Coffee was good as well.

I got a falafel pitta as a takeout and I was unfortunately disappointed given reviews & appearance. It looked great but was very salty, no pickles and minimal hummus. The hummus was yum just not enough. Perhaps just an off day, I hope!

My wife ordered the falafel platter and I ordered the baked eggs with hummus, spicy tomatoes and bread. My wife’s food was alright, nothing special, but my eggs turned into an egg and the dish was very overpriced. We are happy to pay for good...food, this wasn’t. We are locals and won’t bother going back to Yamis.More

From the reviews I expected more. Middle eastern food, nothing more , nothing less. Not better than any other Middle Eastern food but more expensive than most that I have had. I also ordered the reviver drink which is meant to be lemon, mint and...rose water. Ridiculous. Lemon cordial, no mint, no rose water. Indicated this to the waiter who grudgingly added a drop of rose water but no mint. The outside area was mostly full when I was there but that is because there is a lack of lunch dining options in Brunswick Heads.More

The best breakfast in Brunswick heads, fresh and delicious. Something different to your normal poached egg with ham or smashed avo on toast. Will definitely be returning for some more.

The falafel pockets are delicious. The coffee is great too. A well frequented spot, by the locals. Lovely outdoor seating. COVID restrictions meant that it was takeaway only. The staff were efficient and friendly. Great place for lunch and breakfast.
