Amazing cafe with great food and delicious affordable coffee. Perfect way to start the day, and a seat on the sidewalk is a fun spot to watch the city wake up. All the employees are great, and I'd highly recommend stopping by if you're in the neighborhood.

Highly recommend. Mouth watering shawarma plate at 8 am is a foodies delight. The cafe was small but the shawarma and almond croissant were too good.

Wonderful food, great host, clean and very friendly staff. The taste is unique and extremely delightful. Will definitely return... soon 🙂

We discovered this place on a weekend break to Sydney as it was midway between our hotel and the train station ... and we're really grateful. The owner was so welcoming and, judging by the number of happy regular customers that pass by and shout greetings, the café is obviously highly-regarded within the community. The coffee and chai tea were both delicious, as was the food ... and all the staff work very hard to give great service. Next time we're in Sydney we'll definitely be back!

Yummy food full with flavors Cool stuff and a really good service The best falafel in town!!

We stopped in for a couple of açai bowls this morning, and they were excellent! Very friendly establishment, owner clearly cares about what he’s serving his customers. Highly recommend!

The best coffee, food and friendly service in Darlingurst.

Amazing people, going above and beyond. Food was exquisite and would drive from Melbourne again just for the food. We had malawach sabich, falafel and açai bowl and it was rediculously tasty.

I am so happy to find a good falafel pocket sandwich place! A bit far from home but definitely worthy to walk to get you! 👍

Found it when searching for a restaurant that has the yemeni malawach on their menu, and when I noticed that Chapter E offer catering, I jumped on the opportunity to take some good food with me to a getaway with friends during this Easter break. Best decision ever! We were a group of 15 and everyone loved the variety, quality and range of salads and dips. We had humous, eggplant dip, matbucha, israeli salad, cabbage salad, tabbouli, chicken shawarma, falafel, meatballs and schnitzels. Issi has gone out of his way to not only fulfill the usual catering menu, but also my wish to finally eat malawach which I requested frozen to prepare freshly, with tomato salsa and schug (chilli) sauce. I am looking forward to experiencing the food in situ next time I'm in Darlinghurst.

Delicious coffee and food, lots of options for vegans. Had an iced oat flat white, perfect for the sunny weather, and acai bowl (vegan), which was like ice cream and huge. I left full for half a day. The service is really polite and welcoming. You can see that they know their regulars which makes the place very homely. I came back here and during the second visit ate a hummus & falafel wrap- highly recommend.

The falafel wrap here is amazing!!! One of the best I’ve ever had. The brownie with chocolate and hazelnuts was also delightful! It’s a small spot with not too many tables and not the most amazing atmosphere but the food makes up for it!

absolutely gorgeous food and spot, everything was more than delicious. beautiful service. thank you!

I’ve walked past this cafe for months, with the grungey street out the front putting me off ever stopping in. Now that I have finally tried them out, I regret how shallow I was! The coffee is amazing, and the servings are huge for the price - I normally get a falafel wrap or falafel plate. This is my new favourite cafe in the area. If only there was a bit more room for a dining in area it would be about perfect.

Fantastic and tasty food, very authentic. Highly recommend. We had the malawach-sabich (yemenite flat bread with eggplant and boiled egg) and malawach-shuka (shakshuka, hummus) and limonana (lemon-mint drink).

The green protein smoothie is by far the best smoothie I’ve ever had in my life! Soy flat white was also incredible, but none of that matched the service which was absolutely fantastic!

Forgot to take any pic, but this is an amazing 100% recommended place. Very tasty, good size of dishes, original presentation, with an easy yet cozy atmosphere.

Thank you Issi for the second try! I really enjoyed the falafel plate. The falafel were crunchy and really tasty so was the cabbage and the cucumber salad. The plate was big so maybe it could be enough for two __________ I had the Falafel pocket but unfortunately the falafel were squishy and the pocket tastet like nothing. For this way to expensive

It's busy on a Sunday morning... And for good reasons! Coffee was Superb, after travelling Australia and 53 other countries and trying loads of coffees his is definitely top tier! Would recommend 10/10

Tasty middle eastern food and friendly staff.

Really liked this place. Food was good as well as the coffee. Small place with a good atmosphere. They let me sit for a long time reading my book witch I appreciated a lot. The prices were fair and the plate I got was large 🌞 23,67 AUD for a coffe and falafel plate.
