Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had brunch here and the hummus dish was good but the cheese and mushroom omelette was disappointing, dry and flavourless. Nice people and good being able to sit outside.

Returned to Brisbane via Brunswick Heads. Stopped in at Yami to have another falafel. Had a side of Israeli salad as well. All 4 of us enjoyed the food and raved about the freshness and quality of the finished goods.

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.

Have list count of the number of times we have been to Yami and always enjoy the food, never disappoints....have the added pleasure of buying containers of falafel mix to cook at home and the Babbaganoush is sensational as well.
