We visited the restaurant at lunch time, but did not feel like a large meal, so we opted for the Moroccan lentil soup. My wife had previously had this, but for me it was the first time. I had shredded lamb added to mine, but otherwise they were the same. The soup was flavoursome, spicey, filling and very good.

I've been here twice now and have been unimpressed with the food. The atmosphere is great, I think they're just trying too hard with too many conflicting flavours.

It can be loud inside but it is comfortable and the food is good. Sitting outside can be very relaxing. A wide range of coffee and other beverages are available. Service is attentive. Worth a visit.

Visited with a girlfriend for breakfast and we settled on granola with fruit & blueberry pancakes, both were good. Coffee was nice though we were surprised when beans came flying onto our table & bench seat when the staff were refilling the grinder beside us. My companion said she wouldn't mind trying the lunch menu one day as the choices... More

We ended up having lunch at Kofi Beans quite by accident, but enjoyed our meals here. The service was also good and we like the different flavours of our dishes. All in all a place we plan to visit again.

Found this place by accident. Excellent coffee. Had smashed avo and bacon breakfast. Delicious persian fetta and dukkah. English breakfast as well well poached eggs tasty sausage. Only down side was the Victorian smoking laws that say you can smoke outside. Icky. Good place to stop and eat.

It's nicely placed in the 'main market' of Croydon. Had a coffee and raspberry slice cake. Total of $21 for two if us. Will go again, happy with quality of food and service.

Poor service. Asked for the menus only gave us drink menus, when ordering drinks waitress walks off when we were in the middle of ordering. She seemed more interested in a dog then serving customers! She also had her mobile phone in her back pocket which is not a professional look. Drinks were below average. Coffee was terrible and burnt.... More
